Columbus DUI Checkpoints
However, DUI checkpoints are the exception to the rule. Ohio courts have allowed checkpoints if they meet the following requirements* for sobriety checkpoints:
(1) warning signs
(2) uniformed officers
(3) predetermined time and location and
(4) neutral criteria.
Ohio courts, have also ruled that you do have the right to turn around and avoid the checkpoint before you are stopped.
