Yes dui checkpoints are required to be announced before hand to make them legal.

If they are not announced beforehand then it's considered a violation of your rights to detain you while they do their DUI checks.

But I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you're not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol then you have nothing to worry about if you go through a DUI check point.

You shouldn't be drinking and driving or doing drugs and driving anyway.
