    Are you for it or against it?

    for it....

    It's the law in New York and has been for some time. I guess if a person already knows this, it makes sense to plan to have a designated driver.

    If it saves a life, maybe mine, I don't care. I don't think it is a personal right to drive drunk. Get drunk, that is another thing. Just don't drive.

    It's fine that they are enforcing this.

    From experience, knowing friends who died because they were either hit by a drunk driver and killed, or were driving drunk and died by their own hands is horrible.

    I was traveling thru North Carolina one night an as I approached an exit there were orange signs just past the exit saying there was a sobrity check after the next exit after that one. The ploy was for drunk drivers to get off the first exit to avoid the check point. Of course the cops were infact waiting at the end of the first exit to check.

    I hope they catch them before they kill some dude's family. I'd hate to see the poor dude go to jail for killing the drunk driver with his bare hands.

    For it, too many get killed and hurt except the one that is drunk.

    Your papers PLEASE! ... Roadblocks smack of totalitarian tactics. Socialists, and most liberals love them. A man who would give up liberty for safety deserves neither. - 'Ole Ben must be spinning in his grave.

    I am not against being radomly stopped as long as it is truly random, for a purpose (to stop criminality or reckless behavior) and they do not require any information if I have committed no crime (who I am, where I'm going, where I've come from).

    We have traffic surveys in the UK where you are directed off and asked a few questions. I refuse to answer with a polite "sorry, that's private".
