To be a cop either:
Watch out for the "aggressive" DWI enforcement here in Louisiana this weekend. But, come Tuesday, we'll go back to only enforcing the limits on blood alcohol in a half-ass, haphazard manner.
This is dumb like "Click it or ticket," and the gay "Feel the heat," campaign. While I don't have time to run the numbers right now--intuitively, you should know that if you decide to drive under the influence, drive sans seat belt or speed, your odds of getting away with it are far greater than the odds that a cop will accept a free doughnut. If I were one to wager, I'd call it a "sure thing."
How about we do this--we aggressively enforce traffic laws that pertain to safety, we concentrate our efforts on areas where we will make the roads safest for the greatest number of people and we do it all the time. Not just on busy, holiday weekends.
And let's CERTAINLY give up the two dumb ass practices of concentrating troopers and other law enforcement personnel at seat belt and sobriety checkpoints. If you want to get the most enforcement for your buck, putting all your pigs in one place is WAY, WAY dumb....
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend...and, if the opportunity presents itself, thank a member of our Armed Forces.
