Why do they publish where and when they are setting up "Check Point" locations? It only aids the DUI's

Come to a check point, turn car off, throw keys on floor, stand in road and let cops observe you downing a half pint of liquor. You were scared of what was going on. All set

If they don’t, It’s called entrapment.
