The checkpoint will be operated in the San Andreas area from 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

        First off, who in the hell decided Wednesday was a good idea? Secondly, it's advertised. A Friday night would make sense or Saturday. And why San Andreas? Prior to the 4 way stop off 12 in Valley Springs would make sense. That's our gateway to all the lakes, campgrounds ect.
        This is some horrible leadership and planning.

            How about any day at either end of Murphys Grade Road?
            The shoulders of some sections of that road are practically paved with empty hard liquor bottles.

                Typical California clowns at work!! All valid comments above. CHP is right in line with the total BS that runs this state! How about probable cause to stop any vehicle? Oops there is no probable cause, which equates to not having to stop or answer any of their questions.
