People frequently ask me, “Kajon WTF? Why do you post the locations of DUI checkpoints?”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that when well-publicized sobriety checkpoints were conducted, alcohol-related crashes and fatalities decreased by more than 20 percent.
“Sobriety checkpoints are one of the most critical tools available for law enforcement to deter drunk driving,” said Mary Klotzbach, public policy liaison for MADD California Klotzbach states,
