If so aren't these against the 4th Ammendment to the Constitution?

And NO I would have no worries or nothing to hide whatsoever if I ever encountered such.

Your thoughts?

Yes, they have them and they do let the public know in advance. Just in our little town of Crossville I do believe they usually have 3 spots during specific times. I have driven through the Tansi area spot checks a few times. Once I was actually intoxicated, but my driver was not. I told them so and they were very nice. They are only looking out for drivers that should not be on the road, after all, driving is is a privilege, not a right. As for illegal search and seizure, They won't bother unless they feel it is necessary. They know what to look for and don't want to be bothered with extra paperwork. If you are a methhead watch out!

Just an anecdotal, unscientific observation . . . I go to SC regularly from Kentucy, so I am in four states over 11 hours. I have never seen more cars pulled over with dogs around them than in Tennessee. In fact, in years, I have only seen the dogs in Tennessee. Rights or not, if you are trying to do something that is not legal, I feel you are taking a huge risk in TN
Im pretty sure rights are not a concern of the police in those situations.

I live in a small town in TN and know that there are at least 2 K9 units if not more. Why? Maybe it is all the meth heads, but I would rather see those k9 units then the meth heads (and I am not one to like government interference and I don't want to have to show my papers), but when you are on the road in a car you give up your rights.
Just adding to your post.....
I don't agree with a police state, but I am very adamant about driving and the rules of the road.
And meth heads suck!
I also believe that because I 75 is a beltway to the north they get some good busts.
