I'm sorry but I really think it is stupid for law enforcement to announce where they're going to be. People are going to take another route to get where they're going. Defeats the purpose, imo.

Nothing worse than a stupid drunk on the road. I'm assuming it is broadcast so responsible people could avoid being delayed by not using those routes.

Funny how these guys are checking on everyone which is Ok, but I guarantee if they gave the sheriffs dept random drug tests like they do important private sector jobs! That many would fail the test! If the vindy did a report on how many sheriffs have had DUIs it would be an eye opener! And they get out of 9 out of 10 DUIs unless the state highway stops them! Come on Vindy do you have the nerve to report that statistic?

Actually these checkpoints catch very few intoxicated people, but do stop thousands of innocent law abiding people.

Funny how the sheeple are so willing to give up their rights to be searched without probable cause under the guise of catching a few intoxicated people. More would be caught if the police and highway patrol involved in the checkpoints would just patrol the streets looking for intoxicated drivers.
