I have no problem with those checkpoints - as long as they're restricted only to checking drivers for alcohol or drugs. It always seems there are other arrests due to other circumstances such as no insurance, suspended/revoked licenses, outstanding warrants (some of which the citizens might not even be aware of!), etc. Those "other arrests" are invasive of our privacy - which is what law enforcement seems to have quickly forgotten once they set-up these roadside sobriety checkpoints. And who is it that always provides these grants? Stop lying and simply call it what it really is - voluntary overtime! But since they're going to abuse these intrusions with DUI checkpoints, then may I suggest checking the legal identification of those who may not be in the country legally. I'll bet there's far more of them than drunken drivers.

The only ones that are probably having a discussion about it is those trying to avoid it!!! Quit tipping your hand!!
