BIG DEAL THAT'S JUST A LITTLE OVER AN AVERAGE OF ONE A DAY! WHAT ABOUT THE CELL PHONE ABUSE? IT SEEMS THAT NOBODY CARES. I SEE PEOPLE ON THEIR PHONES EVERYWHERE. THAT'S JUST IF NOT MORE SCARIER THAN A DRUNK WHOM I'M DAMN SURE IS A BORDERLINE ARREST. CHECK THE ARREST REPORTS I'LL BET MY LIFE ALL OR MOST ARE UNDER 1.0 I GREW UP HERE QUALITY POLICE ENFORCEMENT IS A JOKE. I WAS RAISED BY AN LA SHERIFF WHO'S INTEGRITY ALONE WOULD EQUAL IF NOT SURPASS THIS ENTIRE POLICE FORCE. ANYONE WANTING FACTS FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME. NICK LESSEOS 310-545-3037

Also DUI checkpoints are not only for DUIs anymore it is for anything else they can get you on as they also had checkpoints in non free country's many years ago.
