Good job to the men and women in blue. We all need to recognize their efforts in stamping out so many needless accidents and deaths. Where are the other Law enforcement agencies and what are they doing to assist in this matter? The more we hear of enforcement and how the different agencies are going after violaters, the more the citizens will stop and "think before they drink".
