Check point to catch drunk drivers sounds okay to me

The drunk that crushed my car, and my left eye, was not partying here in Wisconsin before he tried to kill me. But that doesn’t matter. Speaking as someone who was very nearly killed by a drunk driver, Governor Doyle’s proposal of having check points on major roads to catch drunk drivers sounds good to me. Of course my fear then is that the drunks would take lesser-used roads, created more needless death and harm along there. But that assumes they’d be in a good enough state of mind to take the check point-free route.

Or that they could stop without hitting it or someone else.
