Checkpoints area good idea-- Southern calif uses them frequently and nab weapons, felons, no insurance, no licence, poorly maintained cars ( faulty lights, blinkers...) illegals, underage drivers, teens driving with friends in car(against Calif law!) Many cars get towed and the streets are a little safer. Problem-- many cars that are towed are abandoned by the owner-since they need to show paperwork to get them out of impound-- so they go buy another hoop'd. The checkpoints make all of us more responsible. e use multi-agency task force to do our checkpoints including immigration agents. Way to go.
