    Eighteen citations were issued, six vehicles were towed away and 14 unlicensed or suspended drivers were sent to court.

    The above is the main reason that the police conduct these check points! However, the courts have ruled that any other kind of check point is illegal thus the reason for calling this a DUI check point! The police in their zeal are breaking the law and they know it.They are to abide by all laws, not just the laws they choose to enforce but all laws. I believe law enforcement takes an oath to that fact!

    Yet still, law enforcement are doing exactly what they want to do in spite of the fact that this is just an end run in order to get around the law!

    If they will do this, what else might they do? If the police are allowed to do what they think is right in a case like this what would make anyone think they wouldn't break the law in order to do what they think is right in other cases where the courts say they cannot?

    It's amazing to me that law enforcement continues to do as they please unchecked and no one says a word about it!

    You do not have to go through a DUI check point. If you see one you can legally turn you car around if you can do it without breaking any traffic laws. If you get stuck in a DUI check point, you do NOT have to answer any questions about where you've been or where you're going. You do NOT have to answer any questions at all with the exception of those that are related to your drivers license, registration and proof of insurance. When producing the above documents you only need to roll your window down far enough to pass them along to the officer. The officer CANNOT put anything across the plane of your window including alcohol detecting flash lights, or any part of the officers body. If the officer asks you any questions NOT related to the above documents you can refuse to answer, just tell the officer I do not feel comfortable an answering any personal questions. If the officer asks why, or what do you have to hide, just politely repeat the above.
