Police in neon yellow vests stopped motorists traveling through the main thoroughfare of Trinidad - a neighborhood near the National Arboretum in the city's northeast section. Police checked drivers' identification and turned away those who didn't have a "legitimate purpose" in the area, such as a church visit or doctor's appointment.

Later in the article they make a point to interview a man who says that if we have nothing to hide, then checkpoints shouldn't be a big deal. I think quite the opposite, obviously, but was curious if anyone thought that by being monitored, the cops are changing how they might have acted?
