DUI Checkpoints in Alaska

Can the police randomly stop motorists in the Last Frontier state?

Sobriety checkpoints are not authorized in Alaska.

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%, Alaska has determined not to implement them.
