Stopped for a DUI checkpoint

Tonight, on the way home, I got stopped for a DUI checkpoint, But all the officer did was talk about my car, telling me how much he liked the way it looks, asking me what I had under the hood, and if I done anything to it , then he said that he had ordered a 2012 dodge Charger and was going to pick it up tomorrow and couldn't wait. Never asked me if I'd been drinking

Did he shine a flashlight in the car? He could have determined whether or not you were drinking that way.

Dude, that's part of the investigation, talking to you. It's pretty obvious to tell whether your in the bag or not just by talking to a person. Eyes, speech, odor, and general responses to everyday questions. He probably knew right away you were fine and wanted to bs about your car.

No odor of alcohol on your breath = no need to press if you were drinking.

No odor ...no issues with eyes/speech.. he was bsing to kill time until the line moves. The line moves in unison. So if we stop a 4 lane road, it is far more safe for the officers and civilians involved if you continue the line as a group instead of each car individually (due to the amount of foot traffic). If you have been drinking it is usually obviously and you are pulled off to the side within 60 seconds... and this is when people run lol

We can either be friendly and talk... or just be quiet and awkward. Both are awkward as hell if you ask me...
