A South Florida lawyer has come up with a novel way for drivers to handle police drunk-driving checkpoints and posted a video about it that has gotten over 2 million views.

Boca Raton attorney Warren Redlich says drivers don't have to interact with officers or even roll down their windows. Redlich says all drivers must do is place their license and registration papers on the glass, along with a note saying they have no comment, will not permit a search and want a lawyer.

Redlich says it's not about letting drunk drivers escape but permitting people to assert their rights and protect themselves.

Florida police say it's important for officers to speak with drivers to do their jobs. They also say courts have repeatedly upheld the legality of DUI checkpoints.
