So why I’m I knocking or questioning the USDA’s action. Take a look at Open Range’s website and you’ll know first hand. Just visit http:/// for a second and you’ll see it’s nothing more than a one-page place holder with an email address on it. The email address is for a PR guy with a small company called .

In 1992, the California Master Plan to Reduce Alcohol and Drug Abuse was published, which listed statistics for DUI sobriety checkpoints. According to the Plan, in 1990, out of 84 roadblocks that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) set up as checkpoints, only 599 arrests were made for drunk driving/DUI. If you do the math, an average of 7 arrests were made per roadblock. The total cost of the roadblocks amounted to $250,000. In Kansas City, Missouri, police stopped 25,510 automobiles at a roadblock throughout 2007. Only % of those car drivers were arrested for being drunk. That amounts to 408 drivers.
