Oregon Update --

Oregon State lawmakers are considering the option of amending the Constitution [House bill 3133] in order to allow the reinstatement of police Sobriety checkpoints

in 1987, the Oregon Supreme Court barred police from conducting sobriety checkpoints claiming that the act was unconstitutional as you are detaining motorists without reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

I personally have mixed feelings on the subject as I have participated in assisting with accidents caused by drunk drivers and I've also had the humiliation of going through a checkpoint.- Robin

so the question is... how much are you willing to be inconvenienced or detained for the sake of Highway safety?

it should be quite an interesting debate of the pros and cons of police checkpoints.

so take a deep breath as Clif and I battle it out this Wednesday morning 10 a.m. Pacific Time and you can support me with your opinion by dialing 646-721-9887.
