Law enforcement agencies should forego sobriety checkpoints this holiday season, according to the American Beverage Institute – not that the group has an axe to grind or anything, of course.
Instead, law enforcement should employ “roving patrols,” the Institute said in a press release yesterday. Nice of them to tell the police how to do their job. Roving patrols make it more likely that hard-core drunks will get caught, the institute said, because it’s easy for them to avoid the checkpoints, whose locations are obvious.
Uhm … well, maybe. What do you think?
