  • The money used to pay for the officers at the check point was not taxpayer money. It was money provided by a special grant specifically for the anti-drunk driving campaign. It can also be viewed as being successful as a deterrent to people that may consider driving under the influence.

  • wow 1,053 people screened and only 1 arrest made? sounds like the checkpoint was a big waste of time and taxpayer money considering half of the officers at the checkpoint were probabley collecting overtime pay.
