    My buddy who lives in West Virginia told me that his town has to put in the local paper where and when the checkpoints are set up.

    When they run them here they are always on the spur road that goes from Route 1 to 95...

    Same here. I'm pretty sure that's a federal guideline. They also post enough notice for you to take a side street before the checkpoint if you want. You can actually call the police station and ask the time and exact location of the DUI checkpoints, and they have to tell you.

    Utah is banning DUI checkpoints? Why did they even have them in the first place? Doesn't seem like a state with a lot of drinking going on, with all the Mormons and Super Christians there.

    You must have missed all the Mexicans and Indians.


    Try taking that side street sometime and see how far you get.

    I've been through enough of these things to know that there are usually cruisers set up on the side streets to pull over anyone who dares avoid the checkpoint. Of course around here they just get DELDOT to put up construction blocks on those side streets. No construction is being done, mind you, but it gives another excuse to pull someone over who strays from the chosen path.
