The undisclosed location is most likely Haven Ave. exit off the 10fwy at Concours, as always! I'll be getting off the fwy at Millken since last time it took officers 40 minutes just to set up the cones. Pathetic!

I avoid driving in Ontario, on checkpoint
days. I have a license, insurance and registration. Never drink and drive.

Why?
Don't like being questioned or stopped without any reason.

There has to be better methods to stop the drunk drivers.
Total waste of manpower and resources.

Its not a waste. It is paid for by the state of California through a grant. It takes a few minutes to go through one, but not long. I dont mind going through. They catch more drunks through the saturation patrols which they do through grant funding. Checkpoints are designed to let the public know that the police are out looking for drunks. They have been around since the early 90's. You are being stopped to find out if you are licensed or have been drinking and driving. Whats the problem? They take the unlicensed drivers off the street or a drunk, which is a good thing. I am sure Ontario gets between 50 and 100 unlicensed drivers a night. These are the people who will hit you and leave the scene. Sounds like you need to visit your local police department and go on a ride along so you can be better informed.

Just download trapster on to your phone, based on your gps you'll get a warning about an upcoming checkpoint, so you can take another route.

these checkpoints infringe on my rights for a few minutes (never been in one longer than about 10 minutes)
a drunk driver can infringe on my rights for the rest of my life.
I'll just listen to some tunes while I wait to be passed through the checkpoint, thank you!

These checkpoints aren't for safety.
They're to bring in the big bucks. Last month a traffic cop pulled me over because I turned right BEFORE the checkpoint. My home was nearby their checkpoint. It's interesting that they don't stop cars that lawyers might drive.(Lexus, BMW)Anyways I just let it go, cop had no reason to pull me over, I was never inside the checkpoint or violate any traffic laws.

Download the Trapster APP for iPhone or just go to their website and look at the "TrapMap".

Sounds like YOU like to kiss the cops' butts.
The problem is, why am I being questioned/stopped? I didn't do anything.

Ride along? We're talking about stopping people for no reason, not patrolling the city.

Keep doing your thing Community Watch Captain ;)

Oh come on! I got family members in law enforcement who say these checkpoints are to bring in revenue.

ATTENTION ALL DRUNK DRIVERS: To make sure your ordeal going thru the vehicle checkpoint is smooth and without hassel, make sure you have a dozen donuts and plenty of coffee on board!

Hello people would you rather have these cops have a checkpoint or just let the drunk drivers kill someone? Just don't drink and drive! Oh yeah even if you are close to a checkpoint and turn before you reach the checkpoint they will still pull you over! That I do not agree with but they do.

Cal Berkeley did a study that showed DUI checkpoints actually do mare harm than good. The DUI arrests are actually low compared to saturation patrols. MADD so much political clout they actually cut their nose to spite their face. Anyone with a cell phone can tell where they are and bars warn their patrons. They are allowed because they are supposed to serve the greater good of the community. But study after studybshows they actually cause more drunk drivers to be on the road by just avoiding the large congestion of officers in one area. Our public dollars going to waste. Grant or not they are obsolete.
