DUI checkpoint tonight in Aurora

While I never encourage people to drink to excess and drive, I do believe that you should exercise your right to "opt out" of sobriety checkpoints.  Your participation in them is voluntary.  For a checkpoint to be valid, it must warn you in advance of the checkpoint and provide you an opportunity to avoid the checkpoint in such a way as to not commit a traffic offense in the process.

On this Labor Day holiday weekend, you can count on several checkpoints being operated throughout the Denver area.  At this moment, there is one in Aurora on Alameda, east of Havana.

Please celebrate the holiday responsibly and know your rights.
