    1. It's just a way to catch people who might have forgotten their license at home or have minor citation = more $$$$ for them.
      Down with the police state.

  2. I think this is an awesome idea. Wish you could crack down on drivers who text and use their cell phones to their ear. They are just as dangerous as a drunk driver, maybe more so.

  3. Well what do you expect when they broadcast where and when they are going to be as well as setting it up on a road that is not busy with drunks that time of night. LOL
