I think it needs to be done more often in different places.they are so many people out there driving that does not need to be driving. i think this is a good thing to be doing.

"I've always told my kids (whom are grown) the only people out after midnight are drunks and thiefs."
I mean no offense but that is such a sweeping generalization and unfair. Some people work 2nd shift and don't get off work til midnight or after. Too much judging going on here.

Really?? Im fine with catching DUI's but they got me for a seatbelt ticket, i had mine on, they said as i rode by, they couldnt see it on me, it matched the color of my shirt. Im fighting it, this is BS!!! the fine.....$25.50 thats reasonable, but, the court cost,$135.50, that is BS, it was raised 2 times last year, you might ask why??? because of NC's budget shortfall, that my friend is a tax!!
