What we can learn from A Forsyth County Deputys arrest for DUI

Posted by Michael D. Barber | Jan 31, 2021 | 0 Comments

Early on Friday morning January 6, 2021, Troopers from Georgia State Patrol in the Cumming post, were called to a checkpoint to investigate a Deputy for Forsyth County Sheriff Department, Josh Voss, who found himself being arrested for DUI according to Forsyth News. The Trooper stated that he stopped Voss at a checkpoint where he literally didn't stop for the checkpoint. DUI Checkpoints are one of several approved tactics for the police to use to stop cars and check for a DUI.

All Almost all of the police use these DUI checkpoints. The scenario is usually you are driving around and see blue lights ahead. Except instead of one officer stopping another driver ahead, you see what looks like a parking lot up ahead with multiple drivers stopped and an additional team of police officers directing traffic ahead. You have come upon a DUI Checkpoint. This “tool” allows the police to stop a vehicle for any “legal” reason and their investigation can always lead to to a DUI if they suspect the driver has been drinking or using drugs.

As a result of the Governor's office of Highway Safety teaming up with various organizations, including the HEAT and TEAM division of local counties, the cops are cracking down on impaired driving. These selected investigative techniques, the checkpoints in this situation, may result in a arrest for a DUI.
