I've been stopped at DUI Checkpoints in the past. Nothing recently though.
I read someplace that Santa Clara County was using their resources to increase patrols. Recent studies have shown that checkpoints are not very effective. Police have a better chance of catching drunks behind the wheel if they are actually driving around the community.
I think the whole thing is a waste of money but I really hate the checkpoints.
