Conscientious Roadblock Objector stymies Police Road Block

Friday, January 09, 2015

fair dui roadblock flyerFairdui.org has created a firestorm of praise and scorn on media sites across the country. Chanting the Mantra:  "I REMAIN SILENT, NO SEARCHES, I WANT MY LAWYER."   They have even utilized their Fairdui flyers to successfully negotiate Police Roadblocks and posted a video of the same on youtube.com. The video shows a driver utilizing a FairDUI flyer in Florida. Laws vary from State to State so what works in Florida may not work in Georgia. Further, just because the law is on your side does not mean you will not be arrested and taken to jail.  Remember, we don't suggest that this is a legal defense to a DUI or other arrest at a roadblock but it could create several legal issues which could be utilized to defend a DUI with a qualified Georgia DUI lawyer.  We only highlight this as an interesting news piece and as an act of civil disobedience against the increasing use of Police Roadblocks as crime fighting technique which we believe to contradictory to at least the spirit if not the express language of the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  I know of one case where a Defendant was charged with obstruction in DeKalb County for failing to produce his driver's license at a Roadblock and convicted after trial. The back side of the flyer is post below.  PDF versions of the flyer are available at the FairDUI.org website
