From MPJC
Are Checkpoints intrusive and an ineffective waste of taxpayer money? Saturation patrols are considered more effective, less costly. Why are we still going after tax payer money via federal grants to harass residents when other more effective tools are available to our police for combating DUI infractions?
San Rafael City has a proposal for an additional Office of Traffic Safety Grant for DUI/DL Checkpoints on the Agenda for the City Council Meeting. Come and be heard. Say no to ineffective checkpoints. Does the city have policy for alcohol on city property? How sincere are they when combating alcohol abuse in our communities?
