What is the MADD position on sobriety stops?

MADDand Sobriety Checkpoints

The Mothers Against Drunk Drivers official position on sobriety checkpoints often clashes with the position many DUI attorneys take. MADD fully endorses and supports the checkpoints, while some DUI attorneys question the legality or fairness of such stops.

One of the major arguments against the sobriety checkpoints is that statistics report no decrease in drunk driving incidents, regardless of the existence of the checkpoints. That said, MADD states that these checkpoints should be seen as visible deterrents to drinking and driving.
