What are the parameters for a random registration check by the police? How many innocent law abiding citizens are stopped and it makes them late for work, Dr's. appointment, picking up kids, or anything else.

You'll only be late if they see your registration is expired .... Which they can check before pulling you over.

So , zero law abiding citizens are stopped.

Zero law abiding citizens are pulled over is just not true. You can be pulled over for any time, any where in New Lenox, for any reason.

The officer on the phone told me this after I called to ask why I was pulled over for driving to work in the morning. He said they had no reason they could tell me, and they didn't need one either.

Also if you are pulled over, you can go request the traffic stop document from the NL police. In one instance, an officer issued my friend a warning for "speeding", with no actual speed written. The officer didn't hand it to my friend or even let them know he issued them a warning that was kept on file.

I have been assured by the chief that the warnings on file are not taken into consideration when an officer pulls you over and decides whether or not to give you a ticket for an offense.

Now look people, we have to stop you to make sure you're not a terrorist. Broken tail lights, failing to signal, certain color paint jobs, are all signs of terrorist activity!

Most of the time they only stop people if they have some other reason to do so. Now when they have road blocks they can check for several things if they want to. Just takes a few minutes unless they find problems.
Unconstitutional

Road blocks with the intention of checking registration are unconstitutional. To get around this, police classify them as "DUI checkpoints" and then check your registration anyways. Obviously your registration has zero impact on your blood alcohol level, and more people will get caught for bad registration than actual DUIs at these checkpoints.
