Why post the date, time, and location of a DUI sobriety checkpoint?

It seems to me that would be defeating the whole purpose of these checkpoints, not to mention; someone always alerts everyone on their Facebook page or cell phone.

I agree. I have heard my neighbor, on the phone, giving his son directions how to take back roads to get around them!

To have less folks drinking & driving that night. I would think they need the money = do not tell when & where to make $.

Yes you are correct for some strange reason the law requires law enforcement to advertise the location of a check point. I do agree it is dumb, its like calling someone to let them know you are serving a warrant which you dont have to do, so you think a check point could be a surprise to motorist. If you are not drinking and driving then there is no worry.
