According to the Governors Highway Safety Program, Florida is one of the states that allow Sobriety Checkpoints. Sobriety Checkpoints according to this group are upheld under the federal constitution. This is a difficult statement to honor. The fourth amendment protects citizens from illegal searches or seizures. The ability for an officer to stop a car that has not committed any violation and look through the window of the car would seem to be a search in that sense. There are many law makers who agree. Florida DUI laws are some of the toughest in the nation already. Allowing officers to smell innocent drivers by stopping their cars and demanding that they talk to them, just seems like an intrusion. It is offensive to allow officers to intrude into the lives of law abiding people without reasonable suspicion of wrong doing. Many states agree and have banned these checkpoints. Among them are Alaska, Idaho, Michigan, Montana, and Texas.
