so I was driving home from work at 12:15 AM, and I remembered that the police were gonna have a checkpoint set up. I figured it would be in East Lawrence. Imagine my surprise when I drove by it on Kasold between 23rd and 15th. I think three cars may be processed before it's all said a done....

kubacker (Anonymous) says: "What the H is going on here? All the bars in town close at 2AM, at which time hundreds of really drunk people come out and drive around Lawrence and Douglas County - so they close down the DWI check lane at exactly 2AM!"And of course they wait till the students are gone to insure only a minimum of them are inconvenienced. Big show of taking drunk driving serious while at the same time reducing to a absolute minimum the chances of actually catching anyone.
