The Union City Police Department will impose Roadblocks on East Reelfoot Avenue (a five-lane highway) in the area of the National Guard Armory. There will be another Roadblock on West Reelfoot Avenue in the area of Union City Ford.

These Roadblocks will be imposed upon our "free" citizens Saturday, September 4, 2010 from 10 pm to 4 am.

Good. Maybe they will catch a few drunk drivers that hinder my freedom to drive safely on the streets.

What, Are you kidding me? Yeah it is legal to let everyone know when a roadblock is going to happen! What is crazy is the people that made this law up obviously hasn't had there loved ones killed by a drunk driver yet. It is like going to a meth lab and letting them know that they are going to bust them in a day or so. Yeah give them time to move there lab somewhere else. Now what you have done by posting it in the paper or on Topix is saying it is ok to drink and drive but make sure you bypass the roadblock. Now it only takes a simple person like I to see how stupid that law is. What are you accomplishing by having a roadblock besides all you are going to be doing is sitting there making alot of good samaritans that arent drinking and driving have to stop in the middle of the night especially getting off or going in to work late and making there day a bad one. Something is going to have to change about this law or else there are going to be more lifes taking and it might be yours.

There are other things they can get people for in a road block, though I'm sure DUI is the main concern. There's registration, insurance, unlicensed, seat belt, child restraint/safety seat, drugs, etc. In a town with budget issues, I can see why they'd do it. But yes, it is avoidable if you know what side streets to take.

We must show you that since we use the speed cameras to free up our time for more important enforcement issues, it was roadblocks that we were talking about, not foot patrols in eastgate. You think we're stupid?

By law they are required to announce the roadblocks otherwise someone stopped and arrested can claim entrapment which is what happened and the reason the law was instituted in the first place.
And I agree how stupid or drunk can you be if you know about it and
get caught anyway.

What's great about requiring public announcement in the newspaper is that no one under 35 reads the paper so they get caught. Pretty good huh?

And All of you should also know that they always have road blocks other Places besides just on reelfoot Ave. They will have others out on roads that they didn't put in the paper. Cause everyone knows that at each end of reelfoot isn't the only way in and out of town..
