So­bri­ety check­points

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 10 ed­i­to­rial “So­lu­tion must in­clude treat­ment.”

Yes, many states have drunken driv­ing check­points. As a re­sult, my friends in Cal­i­for­nia quit hav­ing a cou­ple glasses of wine in a res­tau­rant af­ter work to so­cial­ize. That’s enough to put al­co­hol on your breath and po­ten­tially get you yanked to the sta­tion be­fore you’re cleared — not ex­actly worth the has­sle.

If Texas wants a Cal­i­for­nia econ­omy, check­points are a good place to start. Kent san­to­Riello
