Tbhis sounds like a good program.  The program will provide context for the young people on how sublte the clues the police see to make the arrest. When I was a prosecutor and went to my first checkpoints I was expecting falling down drunks. I was watching someone who I thought was doing well get arrested. The police note little actions that they conclude is due to impairment. Forget it could be bad balance, sleepiness, being scared to death, etc. DUI checkpoints are a main subject of conversation in in D 

A new program will let San Diego-area teenagers see firsthand what happens when a resident is arrested for driving under the influence.

The San Diego Police Department’s Traffic Division has launched the Teen Alcohol Awareness Program (T.A.A.P.) in an effort to reach out to teen drivers before they start driving and show them the potential consequences of driving impaired.

The class will start at the Traffic Division on Aero Drive at 9 p.m., where parents and their teens will gather for approximately an hour and a half of classroom time. After, the parents will be asked to leave.

The teenagers will be taken to a working DUI checkpoint and will watch all elements of the checkpoint, from first contact to driver’s evaluation to arrest

After that, teens will head back to the station for a short debriefing. Parents will pick up their kids at 1:30 a.m.

The first class will take place on Aug. 25 and subsequent classes will be announced through local community-based organizations. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis and classroom size is limited.
