Education and awareness of what? Ask any licensed driver if it is legal to drive while intoxicated. Is there anyone that actually doesn't know that DUI is illegal?
Apparently people forget as it happens everyday, and innocent people die on our roadways due to negligent drunk drivers.

There is NO real value in directly violating the fourth amendment. NONE.
Just because you think it's a violation, doesn't mean it is.

People die of a host of reasons. Shall we set up law enforcement checkpoints at every point there may be loss of life?

I'm not the only one that believes DUI checkpoints are illegal. The residents of the states of Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming have said it is unconstitutional. SO SHOULD OHIO.

SAY YES TO THE FOURTH AMENDMENT.

TAKE A STAND FOR OUR CONSTITUTION.

You are wrong. People don't forget. They don't forget that DUI is illegal anymore than they forget that a car has to have tires.

People choose. The same people you were referring to in Post #10, that you thought was the "best part" and was so "funny". The ones that chose to drive intoxicated and chose to drive through the checkpoint. These people knew full well the consequences of DUI and CHOSE to violate the law anyway.

Why do these people do this? I don't know. You probably don't know. Law enforcement personnel doesn't know. No one knows really. But obviously DUI checkpoints don't work, because these people still CHOSE to drive intoxicated. As evidenced by your own words.

There are segments of our society that will never follow the rules. No matter the consequences. No matter the death and destruction it may cause. And in trying to curb these types of behaviors, as it relates to DUI, cooler heads must prevail.

The current DUI laws that are in the book, work relatively well for the majority of the offenders.

What to do with offenders that continue to drive intoxicated?...not sure. But DUI checkpoints DO NOT WORK to deter repeat offenders.

As the system is set up now, the State of Ohio is trashing our civil liberties and squashing our constitutional rights in their effort to "effectively deter impaired driving" and have been doing so 22 years to long.

IT'S TIME TO STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION!

I believe state sponsored sobriety checkpoints are fundamentally unconstitutional. They are unnecessary. They are intrusive.
You, as a driver are presumed to be under the influence of alcohol up until you have been questioned and "investigated" and cleared by a member of law enforcement
Take a stand against this ridiculous assault on the fourth amendment.
TAKE A STAND FOR OUR COUNTRY, GOOD PEOPLE.
Yes, lets just let people get killed so you don't have to be inconvenienced for a few seconds. Good thinking. If they took one drunk off the roadway that could have killed a friend or family member then good for them. Have all the checkpoints that you can have.

I've never been through a DUI checkpoint before. So you're "inconvenience" argument doesn't apply to me. That's not even a consideration. DUI checkpoints deal with far more serious implications than convenience, or the lack thereof.

Take off your rose-colored glasses and try on the awesome, super duper constitution-filter glasses "AsISeeIt" and enjoy your journey in discovering what it truly means to live in a representative democratic republic.

TAKE A STAND FOR OUR CONSTITUTION...before it's to late. DON'T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED

Oh, by the way, the reason I'll open the door for you is because I just came out of it, and I'm bent over grabbing my ankles, ready and waiting for you.

The legality of the checkpoint has been to the Supreme Court, and found to be legal, get over it.
