    People are starting to catch on to the police posting checkpoints for parishes but then not even covering that parish. They should be mandated to cover the parishes that they advertise.

      Hopefully they catch on to not drinking and driving just as quickly…

    • Jared says:

      How about they post it as island wide, this would allow checkpoints to be anywhere at any given time.

    Breaking the law, is breaking the law , the police should not be required to advise the public where they plan to set up. So if police see a situation outside of the checkpoint area and don’t act and the driver kills somebody , can the police be held liable.

    • PBanks says:

      If they “see a situation” then that’s enough probable cause to pull the vehicle over.

    10 people caught over the biggest drinking weekend of the year. Really good going. Notifying people in advance of where the stops will be. Only in Bermuda.

    • Chris Nelson says:

      You get that it is a deterrent, right? Do you know the statistics on how many chose not to drink and drive due to these checkpoints?

    • PBanks says:

      Wasn’t it mentioned at the start of all this that by law, they had to announce the presence and general location of checkpoints?
