    That point aside, merely being on public property (roads) doesn't give the government the ability to ignore your rights.
    AND the government doesn't have rights, citizens do. The government has an "obligation" to make sure people are operating in a safe manner.
    Wrong. You have no right to be given a driver's license to begin with. The privilege to drive an automobile may be taken away from you at any time, by rules created by the legislature. Please show me the provision in the Constitution that grants a right to drive...

    Also, the DUI checkpoints are indeed a violation of the Fourth. No probable cause exists to stop every car or every third car, or whatever. Probable cause means the operator of the vehicle is demonstrating inadequate control of his vehicle and poses a safety threat to others.

    But, glad to see you'll be eager to learn how to goose-step and salute the new fuhrer.
    Well, considering how some people on here seem to be claiming that DWI laws only exist due to political pressure and that there are other things people do on the roads that are more dangerous that are legal. They seemed to be implying that they didn't believe DWI laws were legit. If they didn't mean that, I am sure they will correct this...

    Nah, they're probably going to ignore your failed strawman.

    The DUI laws are meant to raise revenues, first, and protect people, second. Also, DUI isn't even close to being the largest cause of vehicular accidents. Eating, interacting with passengers, and cell phone, radio, and other distractions all create a higher incidence of accidents.

    DUI is a politically popular target because no one defends it. No legislature is ever going to pass a law forbidding EWD (Eating While Driving), or TTYPWD (Talking To Your Passenger While Driving), and the cell phone industry was ecstatic when the control freaks decided that cell phones could be targeted for revenue raising. The cell telephone industry has made a secondary fortune marketing "hands-free" gadgets.

    Everytime a political hack decides something needs more regulation, try to find out who's getting the money.
    You mean statemens like this Mayor? Perhaps you should look at your own statements first...
