Checkpoints are wrong! It is too reminiscent of Communist Russia or Nazi Germany- "Show me your papers please." The 4th amendment of our constitution gives us the right to be "secure in their persons, houses, papers, effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures...and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause..." Having checkpoints is contrary to probable cause-everybody is stopped. Freedom is what makes our country great. Liberty is wonderful, but it must be maintained. Having checkpoints is not what this country is about. Let's leave the checkpoints to the communists.

Driving in NC is a priviledge not a right, when your issued your license and it bears your signature you are saying you will abide by the motor vehicle laws in NC. A checkpoint isnt a search or seizure of any kind( Supreme Court has said they arent), they are used to check compliance of motor vehicle laws. They also uncover impaired drivers, drugs and wanted fugitives. If you dont fall into one of those areas then why worry? It takes less than 2 minutes to LEGALLY go through a checkpoint. People who complain usually got a ticket for some sort of violation and they are just crying about it. I have been through a few and have never had a problem. But I'm legit so maybe thats why.
