That’s a 98% failure record doesn’t sound to affective to me, to inconvenience 650 citizens. Can we be sure that this was a sobriety checkpoint were all 13 arrested for dwi. Or is this just an excuse to keep a eye on us ? and is this even legal? I think if they just wait for people to come out of bars to start there cars ,then do a sobriety check ,they would have a much higher success rate, and not be harassing citizens

Are you kidding me? Would you rather have had one of those 13 drivers stay on the road and possibly have killed someone? The police are just doing their job keeping the citizens safe, not trying to inconvenience them!

Really daddyguru? You think the police should stake out bar parking lots? Sounds pretty unconstitutional to me. Im tired of waking up to the daily news 12 drunk driving/deadly dui crash. At this point, I could care less about anyones rights, but something has to be done

I care less about your fears, and more about our freedoms, this is the home of the free and the brave ,not the home of the fearful sheeple
