Good job, glad they got these idiots off the road. Too bad they didn't get this guy in time:

And for anyone who will complain that the cops have better things to do than track down drunk drivers, try explaining that to this guy's parents.

Ever been hit by a drunk driver on I-95? I have. I was driving the speed limit and staying in the middle lane, this guy just came flying out of nowhere and slammed into me. If there were enough cops, his erratic driving would have been noticed. I just wish there were more cops to patrol the roads, and the penalties were even higher.

A task force of 42 officers in a 6 hour period only nets7 DUI arrests on a Friday night in Palm Beach County. That does not sound like a good return on investment for overtime pay tax dollars to me. How many DUI arrests do these officers make on a normal Friday night? These numbers mean that 6 officers were required to get each single DUI arrest(6 officers x 7 DUI arrests = 42 officers on overtime pay). Having 1 out of 6 officers make a DUI arrest on a 6 hour saturation patrol is not really that effective. You KNOW there were way more drunks out there than that! And to print an article like this action was a huge success? PLEASE!! I don't know how 42 people stayed awake on this operation. The event must have been catered!

I'm grateful it was at least six!! Including Palm Beach Public Elementarys School Principal, Sharon Robinson Stevens! This is a shame
that so many young lives are influenced on a daily basis by this type of individual. Surely, the District will get this poor soul some help before her retirement. But what about our children? This saddens me the most. We should always remember her famous words,”for the best interests of the children”.
