In my opinion, dui checkpoints for the most part are a joke, they are a way for the State to make money. This past weekend several DUI checkpoints were set up in various parts of the county looking for drunk drivers-or more like, drivers the Police could ticket for anything. Here are this weekends numbers.
Five DUI arrests were made, as well as three drug-related arrests and over 70 fines were given for things like lights being out, people not having paperwork on them, people with bald tires and the list goes on and on.
Police ask that motorists drive sober or have a designated driver this upcoming Labor Day Holiday weekend. More DUI checkpoints are planned.
