If you are just driving in your city and encounter a cop that grew up in your town or city and is just trying to figure out if you came from elsewhere to cause trouble, JUST SHOW HIM YOUR DUMB ID.
Unless you are a BUTTHOLE and just not showing the license due to some misguided ignorance of the law and trying to prove something..

My town does them in the middle of the day, that's why I'm always a little curious as to why they're really there. Wouldn't a DUI checkpoint make more sense at say 10pm vs 6pm, when people are returning home from work? My suspicion is that they're looking for illegals, the town I live in depends on and is world renown for it's grapes.
I think we are all stuck by the wording on drivers lisc. form and when it comes in the mail. They all say when you get it to carry it at all times and we must..."Surrender to Law enforcement upon request".

If you're are the one actually driving, the cops have every right to ask for your licence, registration, and insurance. You might want to actually read your motor vehicle code for the state/province you are in.
If you are a passenger, you are under no obligation to provide them with id.
