People like you who bitch about your rights being violated by checks like this or in airports, etc. are usually also the first ones who want to sue anyone and everyone when they are hit by a drunk driver or their family dies in a terrorist attack. OH WHY DIDN'T THEY KEEP US SAFERRRRRRR?!?! SOMEONE NEEDS TO PAY! I SWEAR IT'S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY! It's a joke. And so are you. Also, equating DWI checkpoints to slavery shows how ridiculous you truly are Mr. Hookerman.

DWI check points are nothing new so I'm not exactly sure what all the hub bub is about. I got my license in the eighties and on any given night, traveling back to Bergen county from either Hoboken, the city or wherever, there were random checkpoints. I'm not a fan of the inconvenience but this isn't anything that hasn't been happening for years. My question is really more of why are they telling us? Is that a state or county requirement? Like Town Drunk said, they're giving those who do drive drunk a heads up. It's like me hiding cookies so my kids won't gobble them up but letting them know where I hid them. Or, on the flip side, maybe making people aware that there are checkpoints will make drunk drivers think twice before getting behind the wheel. I don't know.

It took 144 years before women were give the right to vote in this country. Saying that a violated right is 'nothing new' does not seem to be a reasonable defense.
