Just what we need. Officer friendlies asking us where we are coming from and where we are going as if it were their business. Perhaps they should stay home this weekend and read the constitutions both state and federal.

All the naysayers, DUI is no kidding matter. Are you going to stop people from drinking and driving and risking people's lives ?????

I agree @bigben ! If you want to drink ... Don't drive! If you want to eliminate DUI checkpoints ....,drink responsibly...
