State v. McDonald, 239 N.C. App. 559 (Mar. 3, 2015)

Although the trial court properly found that the checkpoint had a legitimate proper purpose of checking for driver’s license and vehicle registration violations, the trial court failed to adequately determine the checkpoint’s reasonableness. The court held that the trial court’s “bare conclusion” on reasonableness was insufficient and vacated and remanded for appropriate findings as to reasonableness.
