New Hampshire lawmakers are currently considering a proposal to prohibit police from running sobriety checkpoints in the state, according to published reports.
Supporters of the bill say the checkpoints violate people's due process rights when they are arrested for other violations or their vehicles are searched. But law enforcement officials say the checkpoints are critical in helping them to combat drunken driving and keep highway fatalities down.
