Who can be stopped for DUI?

Anyone can be arrested for DUI, regardless of the original reason that the police officer stopped the car. In general, a police officer has to have probable cause to stop a vehicle, meaning the officer must identify a traffic violation, vehicle equipment safety violation, or pattern of suspicious driving in order to stop the car. The exception is DUI checkpoints, where all motorists may be stopped and assessed for DUI without probable cause.
