Every month, state police conduct checkpoints and saturation controls in counties across the state in an effort to reduce alcohol-related deaths.

Pretty much a contentless article, IMO (not the poster's fault)

There is no context in this article.

Is this more or less than previous Friday nights?
Is the trend down or up or constant?
Was this data captured in 4 hours, 10 minutes or what?
How many total vehicles?

And the harder question...are these advertised in advanced and how many people decide not to drive in fear of getting caught (rather than fear of getting hurt or hurting someone else)

I applaud these efforts, in general, because there are too many people too dumb to know to not drive after drinking...still...after all these years of trying to get them to stop.
