To El Conquistador.. Since I track this stuff we don't use road checks they are worthless. We use the more effective saturation patrols. We hardly ever reach goals on arrests and we have never had or been threatened to have grant money pulled. Our fatalities from DUI drugs and alcohol are below the national average at 18% and our agency has won numerous traffic safety awards,guess what this year we are down 3 dedicated officers in our traffic section and our fatalities have soared upwards and increased by a large percentage.With no other significant changes in population or traffic patterns I can't say it is the only cause effect but I will track and compare.
