Make sure your papers are in order and make sure you have a good reason to be out because the state police will interrogate you.

First you complain there are no police then you complain when there are

GOOD! After having lost a son to a lowlife drunk driver, I'M GLAD THE PSP ARE OUT THERE WATCHING!

Hey folks, they gotta eat too--haha

I haven't lost anyone to drunk driving but I'm very glad they are doing check point. I'm just not sure announcing the check points is the greatest of ideas. Just do it, when it is announced more people are more careful than they normally would be.

DON'T grab your ID, vech reg & proof of ins BEFORE they get to your window. BECAUSE IF you unbuckle to get them ahead of time, YOU WILL be cited for NO SEATBELT.

Maybe it would be easier if anyone that drinks just wear a yellow star on their clothing so they can be easily identified. It worked for the Nazi's.....

Gotta solve the budget crisis somehow......too bad they can't enforce DUI in areas like Philly, P'Burgh, Reading, Hershey, or Harrisburg like they do here. The State can thank DUI offenders in potter County for solving the budget crisis...

If you really want to catch drunk drivers why would you announce that there was going to be a check. That is just pain dumb. If you want to drink and drive this wekend you better go to McKean or Cameron counties.

Actually the troopers are always on the look out for those who are driving impaired by drugs or alcohol. State police in Coudersport and Kane made 21 arrests in July for DUI

Why don't we worry about what the purple boxes are hanging from the trees ?? They distract drivers when they look up to see what in the heck they are & they swerve

Anonymous said...

i have a better solution...just don't drink and drive in any state, county, boro etc. SOLUTION RESOLVED!!

There are thousands of things out there to distract drivers. One of the first rules when learning to drive is to keep your mind on the vehicle and maintain control. One of the most annoying things for me when driving is the flashing strobe light on the back of busses. It seems to be hypnotic....

Yes please the Austin/Costello, Cowley Hill/Ridge Road areas!!!!!!

Talk about wasteful tax dollars at work. It seems as if the state police are just traffic cops anymore.

The purple boxes are markers for where the sobriety checkpoints will be located.

Anonymous said...

hey D, you're pull up your pants, your IQ is showing. nearly everyone knows by now that you can't be arrested for just not wearing a seatbelt; you have to be doing something else wrong too.

i'm glad the cops take the time to do this sort of stuff.

Anonymous said...

It's as simple as: DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!!!

You dumb a$$ those purple boxes are not where the check point is gonna be. They are bug boxes. Scientist are studing certain species of bugs and the boxes are to catch these bugs for experimental use.

Drinking and driving is against the law. The police are ALWAYS arresting anyone for breaking the law in any way. The checkpoints are only to enforce the law. They have done these well before the budget was in trouble.
It is NOT a waste of tax dollars because this is HOW we get killers off the road.

Austin! I hope they set it up in Austin.

I know for a fact "D" & "poster 8:53am" that it has been done. A lady I know was pulled over and the only thing she drove away with was a ticket for not having her seatbelt on.

Must be they didnt make their quota last month

Anonymous said...

Don't forget..PSP aren't even getting paid now to protect you!!

Anonymous said...

I heard they did make their quota, thanks to people like you.

Trust me go to Austin, you would be surprised not just drunks but the dope dealers as well. Maybe Brian Phelps can lend Rylie out to help. Its about time to crack down on the OXY and POT dealers too!!!!!!

We don't have to wear helmets on cycles, but we have to wear a seatbelt?? Makes you wonder sometimes.

Anonymous said...

PSP can not pull you over just for a seat belt violation. They must have another reason to stop you (or during a routine traffic stop). If they stop you for something else and notice you are not wearing your seat belt then they can fine you for it. They could stop you for something as simple as a tail light being out (which they usually just give you a warning for) but if you don't have your seatbelt on, they are going to fine you for it.

I agree...simply DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! Instead, SAVE A LIFE!

Unfortunatly Psp and local Police ar damned if they do, damned if they don't. They can't win. All it takes is for you to lose someone you love to a stupid DUI crash or leave them disabled and you just may change your mind. They are doing their jobs!
THANKS TO ALL THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS IN POTTER COUNTY!!!

Arent the purple boxes for the emerald ash borer bug???

Me and my wife go to the drive-in just about every Friday, and as we came home tonight we were stopped on Rt 6 between Port and Coudy, very nice officer, checked my stuff out and I was on my way in less then 5 minutes, I hope they catch everyone that is drunk. Hard enough to watch for deer, let alone the drunks. I wish they could just stay out all the time.!

Anonymous said...

hey guys we have stealth cars out now that when it rains they disappear in to the mystic... yeah guys let the cops do there jobs as it had been said do be stupid.. dont drink and drive and always wear clean underwear you never know whats going to happen.. thoose there folks are the rules of life JUST DO IT.... stop moaning and for thoose out there who lost loved ones the cops are out there to stop this from happening again it may be one at a time but small thing come in BIG packages.......

Anonymous said...

you can allways tell the idiots on here why don,t you drumk drivers just give your name to psp that way they won,t have to keep having these checks they can just come and get you i think the fine for drund driving should be loss of lisence for life and fines starting at25.ooo dollars maybe some idiots would learn something

Anonymous said...

I think they should go to Austin & Costello..They will find alot of drunk drivers there..there have been several ppl in accidents there that involved drunk drivers..we need to get these IDIOTS off the streets..SAVES LIVES DONT DRINK AND DRVE

Anybody who remembers when Jerry Springer ran over two little kids in Austin while intoxicated would certainly not have a problem with checkpoints. He destroyed several people's lives by choosing to get behind the wheel. If you choose to get behind the wheel, then you deserve to get arrested!

Anonymous said...

LOL... That is so true about the purple boxes. What the heck are they for I have been wondering. I also agree why in the world would you tell when the checks are? They really do need to do something about that seat belt thing. When you grab everything take it off thats more money. So dum.

Anonymous said...

I tell you when they post it is just dum. Also we do make jokes and have fun with this. Everyone knows how important this check point is but, it's dum to tell everyone. I just want to know why the cops are more worried about this then the other important stuff happend. If you call are make a report on someone and the potter police go and to talk to them nothing happends as long as you smile and say it never happend. If the got everything else stight then worried about this I bet you would find less druck drives out there. Bottom line smile and lie they will let you go....

I agree they do need to do this is the Austin-Costello area,the only problem is, as soon as someone see's a cop in the Austin-Costello area, they get on their phone's and call all their drunk friends to warn them where the cops are, and then the drunks wait until the cops leave the area, before they drive.
