What is Checkpoint response? Checkpoint response is a network of volunteers who spread information about where and when checkpoints are to take place through e-mail, social networking, and text messages. When possible, we also warn the drivers in our communities through standing protests on the affected streets at a distance of a block from the checkpoint. If you would like to report a checkpoint announced in your local press or that you've seen in your community, or if you would like to receive text alerts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
