    Only 2 DUI’s What a waste of time. If the checkpoint was done right by the door of any Lancaster bar then there should be no shortage of drunkheads!

      Thank you! I agree! We pay the law officials enough to seek these folks out all over the AV from the comfort of their own radio cruiser! Instead, law makers think it’s a better idea to inconvenience some 1200 law-abiding citizens of what used to be a free country. (These generations don’t understand why things happened the way they did in 1945) This way they can justify payin all these folks waaaaay more than they already earned. Jewelry for the lil lady, a swimming pool, a new rig, etc. All these things are given to these folks as a “gift” from our law makers in the guise of a “grant” to halt drunk/buzzed driving.

      This just in: It’s a lost cause!! Just like doobage, it’ll never be stopped because of “law enforcement”, or “grants”, or medical dicovery, or death.
