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.
@Dave,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.
If your going to Drink/party - Stay home smart moves good ideas Plus for those loved ones that care Dont Drive Drunk alchol is bad for
Thank you UHP.And, thank you to the designated drivers and their
friends who were smart enough to plan ahead.
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.
Thank you UHP!!!!!!
And besides tha point,no to Drink and Drive at all you can Harm be harmed or
other wise.Good idea..They Have random check points From Here to
