Round ‘Em Up

August 21, 2013, by Michael A. DeMayo

If you were driving late night on Wilkinson Boulevard over the weekend then you noticed the roads were empty.  That’s because Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were roundin’ folks up left and right at a DWI checkpoint.  These late night checkpoints—particularly those conveniently placed near all night food places—are like shootin’ fish in a barrel for officers. 

This particular checkpoint had a much larger significance than just protecting other drivers on the road.  The parents of a young girl who died seven years ago because of a drunk driver attended the checkpoint the night prior in memory of their daughter.

The couple received the tragic news of their daughter seven years ago, but the continued dedication to preserving her memory gives officers the reminder they need to keep the roads safe with unbridled determination.  The following night there were over sixty charges with ten of those beings warrants.  Nobody wins with drunk driving—well correction—defense attorneys win.  Aside from the hefty fee collected by defense attorneys, nobody wins.  So, don’t do it.  Unfortunately, we all know several people disregard my advice all the time and auto accidents will continue to happen.
