Sobriety checkpoints may be coming to Oregon. State Senator Rod Monroe has issued Senate Joint Resolution 7 — a House-Senate partner resolution that brings to voters a constitutional amendment to authorize sobriety checkpoints. Senate Bill 352 is the implementing law if SJR 7 passes. Sobriety checkpoints brings a clash of civil libertarians and tough on crime advocates. It would amend Article I of our constitution which deals with unlawful searches. It raises the question on wether searching your car carries the same protection as searching your home or body.
