    Why not just visit the residences of those on the lists and if they are not at that residence, then proceed with the offending person? Why are you disrupting EVERYONE else unnecessarily?

    And the NERVE to say the delays are caused by people who have no reason to be on the roads. Um, hello, there ARE places still open! And besides those who work in those places, those places are open for a REASON,and that reason is to serve the people who are on the roads traveling to those places, duh.

    And there are many more reasons that are none of anyone’s business why people might be on the roads.

    YOU POLICE are causing the traffic delays, NOT the people.
