Police fear Twitter users will thwart DUI checkpoints: Fascinating.
Police around the country will be setting up the usual sobriety checkpoints tonight, but this year there’s a new factor in play to outwit them: Twitter.
In Fresno, Calif., police say they know their checkpoints are being avoided by young drivers sending tweets. Sgt. Dave Gibeault, head of the traffic unit, tells McClatchy Newspapers his own daughter has sent him text messages about where she’s heard there is a checkpoint.
