"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."---Groucho Marx

A Proposed Law
For those states that still allow sobriety checkpoints.


"THE STOPPING AND DETAINING, INVOLUNTARILY, OF ANY PERSON FOR ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT PURPOSE MUST BE PRECEDED BY PROBABLE CAUSE OR, AT A MINIMUM, REASONABLE SUSPICION, THAT SAID PERSON HAS OR IS COMMITTING A CRIME. THE RIGHT TO TRAVEL CANNOT BE DIMINISHED NOR LIMITED AS A CONDITION FOR OBTAINING A GOVERNMENT PRIVILEGE OR LICENSE."  (The second sentence is to prevent the state from conditioning the issuance of a driver's license by requiring the applicant to give up certain rights, e.g. allowing police officers to stop and detain you without probable cause or reasonable suspicion as a condition for the granting of a drivers license.)--Suggested by the National Motorists Association
