Survey: 75% of Virginians Agree that DUI Checkpoints Should Be Legal

In 2015, there were over 240 alcohol related vehicle fatalities and nearly 5,000 related injuries in Virginia. This number is still too high, but overall the state is trending in the right direction. Between 1990 and 2009, each year had over 300 alcohol related fatalities, enforcement and awareness campaigns seem to be working.

One of the most aggressive enforcement tactics police in Virginia use is DUI checkpoints, but there is disagreement about the legality of this method. We decided to ask Virginians their thoughts on the matter, and the results are quite telling!
