Aggressive Advocacy For Checkpoint Arrests
Interstates are major byways for interstate commerce, and law enforcement knows they are the prime location for major drug dealing to take place. In an effort to catch drug traffickers in the act, drug task forces in Kansas and across the U.S. often employ drug checkpoints on major interstates such as I-35 and I-70.

Search And Seizure At Checkpoints On I-70
The drug checkpoints that law enforcement uses are not necessarily real checkpoints — they merely create the illusion of a checkpoint. In Kansas, signs on I-70 may notify people of “drug checkpoints ahead.” Flashing lights make drivers think there are officers pulling everyone over.
In reality, officers are often waiting to see who exits to avoid the checkpoint. They then pull those individuals over and search vehicles. This begs the question, “Did police have a right to search my car?”
