DUI Checkpoints Will Be Useless New Year’s Eve

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Although there will be a lot of DUI checkpoints on the road this New Year’s Eve, it still won’t stop a massive wave of drunks from getting behind the wheel. Addiction expert Doug Thorburn says the increased amount of DUI checkpoints won’t have “any effect” on the amount of drunk drivers on Sunday night ((Dec. 31) because “whether it be New Year’s Eve or just a regular weekend night, people will make up excuses to drive drunk.” In a way, the checkpoints provide encouragement for regular drunk drivers to commit the dangerous action, Thorburn says. In his words, “Drunk drivers like to see what they can get away with and they love getting away with this stuff. They even brag about it at their next AA meeting.”
