I’ve never heard of a sobriety checkpoint. That seems a bit much.
I saw them all of the time in my hometown. Maybe they just don’t use them in your jurisdiction.
I’ve been pulled over by a few, generally as a random check. I don’t drink or do drugs but if I did the odds would favor my having a record by now.
& yes, I have seen drunk stops along the interstate before.
Where I am, they’re generally only around during major alcohol consumption days at times that people are bound to be coming home from parties and pubs — St. Patrick’s, Independence, New Year’s, graduation at the local college, etc.
I’m guessing Jake has some contraband that Blue doesn’t know about.
But if Blue doesn’t know about it, then they aren’t high or drunk, and the police won’t know about it at a sobriety checkpoint unless he does something stupid. Unfortunately, he looks panicked enough to do something stupid.
Though, if there is something and Blue doesn’t know about it, she might consent to a search of the vehicle because she believes that there’s nothing to be found.
“Blue”‘s name is Patty
I was about to say, yeah. Blue is the old Volks Beetle.
That’s still only if he does something to make the cops suspicious though. They aren’t going to be asking to search vehicles otherwise.
I’m guessing those “Cokes” were beers, and that Jake has open containers all over the place.
That shouldn’t really matter unless she’s been drinking too.
Alternatively, he just REALLY has to pee.
I bet squee-face ADA eats at “OMGTacos!” and makes that same face.
If I ever own a Thai restaurant, I will pay you to let me call it Thai1On.
It is widely believed that the most dangerous place in town is in between Pi and a platter of tacos.
Which is; of course, why the Police are obliged to frisk the nearby area to ensure there are no tacos around.
This may my day.
…made my day.
There was, in Richmond, a place called “Friend or Pho”
College dive but not bad Pho
After all this time I still don’t get this joke. Is it supposed to sound like “Taiwan On” or something? Huh?
Or perhaps to “tie one on?”
Just wondering, couldn’t the location of a DUI checkpoint be arbitrary? Thus making it illegal under the 4th Amendment?
Stopping motorists without probable cause is either acceptable or not, why would the location matter?
….aaaaaannnnd now I have a crush on someone who drives a VW bug.
His problem is that he’s a moron…
