For those of you that find yourself "violated" the next time you come upon a sobriety checkpoint in Payson, why don't you think of the lives that might be saved if law enforcement comes across a drunk driver? I think it is very noble and responsible for officers to enforce this activity. It makes me feel safer to drive the streets of Payson knowing they care enough to pull intoxicated drivers off the road. So what if you lost five or maybe even 10 minutes to get to your destination? If you came across a drunk driver, you might not have made it at all.
I salute all law enforcement and highly encourage sobriety checkpoints.
