    Both of the above replies sound like two ignorant drunks who don’t belong on the road but it does not help with this announcement of what time and where they are doing this either who this site, if anything they should be out around midnight to do this when the real idiots come out.

      Wrong. Look at the number of drunks taken off the streets from these checkpoints. The number is very low. They’d be better off having the troopers riding around looking for drunks leaving bars. Who’s ignorant now?
