This just goes to show how stupid and what a waste of time a DUI checkpoint is if you are GOING TO WARN THE CRIMINALS ahead of time as to when and WHERE! Its ridiculous that the papers were able to warn all drunks ahead of time to drink in other parts of redlands or alert them enough that they made other streets dangerous to human life because they avoided the checkpoint. If you really think that there were only 3 drunks driving in the area that night then I have some oceanfront property in Arizona for you!

Well what do you expect from a temporary police station set up in the middle of the road hoping criminals will just show up. By the way advanced notice of a checkpoint is required in order to be constitutional.
