DUI Checkpoints in Wyoming

Can the police randomly stop motorists in The Cowboy State?

Sobriety checkpoints are not authorized in Wyoming (see Wyo. Stat. §7-17-101 et seq which fails to specifically authorize sobriety checkpoints). Sobriety checkpoints are random traffic stops, not tied to any specific suspicions. At one of these checkpoints, drivers are briefly questioned after which suspicious drivers are subject to field sobriety tests. Despite the fact that these checkpoints consistently reduce alcohol-related crashes, typically by 9%, Wyoming has determined not to implement them.
