Sobriety checkpoint to weed out dangerous/dumb drivers
Sobriety checkpoints are fantastic. A lot of times, law enforcement will even let the public know ahead of time that they’re going to be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers. They don’t say the exact spot, but they say something like this release that just came out:
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint April 16, 2011 (Saturday). The checkpoint is set to begin at 10:30pm and will end on April 17, 2011 at 3:00am. There will be a zero tolerance policy for anyone found driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs and they will be arrested. The maximum penalty in Oklahoma for a first time conviction for driving under the influence is 1 year in jail, a $1,000.00 fine, and 6 months revocation of drivers’ license.
So, to summarize, if you get arrested for driving impaired this weekend, you’re even dumber than the average drunken driver. Your fine should double to factor in the stupidity.
