Vance says virtually every state highway, parkway, and even some secondary roads will be covered by more than the usual number of troopers.

    We should never drink and drive, but I still like to know where checkpoints
    will be in Orange County, San Diego, and LA. I may use calcheckpoint
    (www.twitter.com/calcheckpoint) to find out where they are.

    They are using the so-called legal DUI checkpoint to look for other stuff they can’t do legally, like have license and registration checkpoints…….they are doing it everywhere

    Remember the government never does anything FOR you

      Exactly, the checkpoints are nothing more than an excuse find other stuff to issue revenue generating tickets. I don’t know how these “safety checkpoints” are allowed to continue as it is an infringement on civil rights due to lack of probable cause.
