    Last year we went through a checkpoint to check for DUI's, and we did not feel that we were harassed at all. It was nice to feel that the roads were safe from those drinking and driving.

    Re: DAVE.. you must have been one of the 1500 that were stopped. Your comment sounds like sour grapes.

    I hope the UHP keeps up this strategy to take DUI offenders off the road.

    There are more than 50,000 deaths on our roads each year, and MANY more traffic collisions that result in major injuries without deaths. At least half of all these "accidents" involve an intoxicated driver. This is very worthy effort, one which I wish the UHP and other agencies would invest a little more effort in.

    @ Dave. I think you may change your opinion if/when you have/had a family member killed by someone in our society who was excising his/her freedom to drink and drive.

    My grandfather did not even get to know me or my children....

    I wish that we had more "harassment". . . perhaps then my grandfather would have the freedom to live a longer life.

    Thank You UHP.....please do this more often.

    Almost 1500 people harassed to arrest 79. It would be interesting to know how many of those were actually unsafe to drive. My guess would be less than half. We give up liberty for perceived safety. A sad commentary. Freedom is not free.
