On August 22, 2012, the South Carolina Court of Appeals clarified certain legal requirements that must be present for a DUI roadblock to pass constitutional muster in South Carolina. In Vickery (State v Vickery, S.C. App. Op. #5025, August 22, 2012), the state appealed the trial judge's suppression of evidence arising out of a DUI/DWI -drunk driver-checkpoint because it felt that the roadblock was constitutional. The South Carolina Court of Appeals agreed, reversing the trial judge's decision and remanding the case back to the trial court for final disposition.
