That's because the number of illegal immigrants is on the decline.
Good to hear the number of arrests is down. Hopefully this means the amount of drunk driving is down too.
Just curious: has anyone here ever been stopped in a DUI checkpoint? I have never even seen one.
I've been stopped at DUI Checkpoints in the past. Nothing recently though.
I read someplace that Santa Clara County was using their resources to increase patrols. Recent studies have shown that checkpoints are not very effective. Police have a better chance of catching drunks behind the wheel if they are actually driving around the community.
I think the whole thing is a waste of money but I really hate the checkpoints.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
