      Point missed. I’m not saying that the checkpoints are illegal. I’m saying that BROADCASTING THE TIME, PLACE AND DATE IN ADVANCE defeats the purpose. The case you cite does not address this point at all.

        Point not missed (I agree with your position), and the case does address notice: Turns out, by publicizing checkpoints your local police department is just following the letter of the law. Way back in 1990, a legal challenge came up in Michigan and the attempt was made to deem checkpoints unconstitutional. The United States Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that they were constitutional, but they mandated that checkpoints must be publicized ahead of time. If the police don’t publicize a checkpoint it can be considered a detention without reasonable suspicion, and that violates your Fourth Amendment rights.

        The irony is that in VA we are not allowed to use a radar detector to detect cops who surprise us with high-tech devices that may or may not be accurate and may or may not be detecting one’s vehicle. It is, however, somewhat more objective to determine if a vehicle is speeding as opposed to determining if the operator is DUI or DWI.
