    A total of 8 DUI arrests. That equates to preventing possible fatal DUI accidents which might have even included the drunk driver.
    Great job LPD.

    What good job? 11 out of 934 vehicles. 1.1% RETURN ON INVESTMENT. I bet Half will get off on a technicality. Is it too much to ask that LPD focus this much attention on Theft, Drugs and Gang Bangers? This is about as useful as Zoophonics!

    Very interesting that this has occured twice - A DUI checkpoint was announced for St. Patrick's Day and then changed to saturation patrols.

    Then saturation patrols were announced for Cinco de Mayo and changed to a DUI checkpoint. The first was in Friday's paper and then a DUI checkpoint was in Saturday's paper.
