An 8 hour sobriety checkpoint and only 6 people were arrested?? and ONLY 3 for OUI?? They must have that alternate route plan like Franklin NH does. I wonder how they're going to justify the funding for another checkpoint in that area.

This must be a growing problem. Last month we busted a kid for stealing a road pylon.
