It always surprises me how checkpoints work here in Pennsylvania in that they publicize ahead of time when and where the checkpoint will be. It seems to me that it would make a lot more sense having it at random times without telling anybody.

I went to college in the south and distinctly remember one night, as a designated driver coming to and from a party, my car ended up at a checkpoint four times in four different locations by the same set of police officers. By the third stop, they recognized me as the DD and just let us go.

Pennsylvania's system doesn't allow that type of flexibility. The first one out of the party can just call his or her friends and let them know they need to avoid Washington Road.

Seems silly...
