Deputy Police Chief Calls For “Permanent” DWI Checkpoints In Texas

AUSTIN, Texas -- A deputy police chief in South Texas has asked legislators to consider setting up permanent DWI checkpoints to save lives.

San Antonio police Deputy Chief Anthony Trevino appeared Monday in Austin before the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee.

The San Antonio Express-News reports Trevino urged legislators to allow law officers to stop drivers and do routine sobriety tests near so-called drinking-and-driving “hot spots.” He says local data could be used to identify areas where such behavior is prevalent.

Approves(d) spotchecks for drunk driving and this is what it leads to.

Someone would have to go through the legislation to see if the term random or something like that is in there imo.
