The point of this is to prevent drunk drivers from killing people, not to harass innocent people just out having a good time. If your sensibilities are that easily offended, maybe you should just go dig your own lake, and camp there.

Of those 18 stops, none of them were found to be drinking.Officers were instructed if the driver has the smell of alcohol on his or her breath, if eyes were bloodshot or if speech was slurred then they were to take further action.“We wanted people to know we were doing this,” Nefzger said. “The whole point was to decrease drinking and driving during a holiday weekend. And that’s what we did.”last_img
