Checkpoints are a good idea. Check those drivers to see if they have a driver’s license, insurance or outstanding violations.
But telling them when and where the checkpoints are going to happen is a bad idea. That’s just what happened in The Sun News under the headline, “Checkpoint opens Thursday in Loris.”
It reported the exact times the checkpoints would be in place, and where. Might as well have a sign on the highway telling that there is a checkpoint one mile ahead, turn around if you are not supposed to be driving.
It makes me think they don’t want to stop the really bad ones.
Never miss a local story.
