Sobriety check point

Sobriety check point

PostBy: coalkirk On: Tue Oct 09, 2012 2:53 pm

A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends and had a few too many beers. Knowing I was well over the limit, I did something I've never done before - I took a taxi home. Sure enough I encountered a sobriety check point police road block but because it was a taxi, they waved me past. I arrived home safely without incident which was a real surprise. I have never driven a taxi before and am not sure where I got it.

Just kidding of course. A friend sent that to me today and I thought it was really funny. I have lost my car before but that was many years ago.

All the years I've been driving I've only seen 3 checkpoints in my life - 2 in MA and one in AZ. Lucky me! :lol:

I hear the cops like it when you whip a "youey" (MA speak for U-turn) before you get to them. :lol:

No joke. Two years ago the idiot kid I work with called me one morning in a panic asking me to pick him up. He kept telling me he went to the bar and was pretty smashed and he didn't remember how he got home. He said his car wasn't in the driveway and that he didn't know where it was. When I asked where the last place he remembered having it he said the bar. He also said he had called the bar and they told him the car was not there. So, I angrily agreed to get him. Upon arriving at his house I discovered his BMW parked on the opposite side of his father's Jeep. I immediately called him and said, "Your *censored* car is in your driveway you *censored* idiot!"

Lehigh Twp police are known to set up check points on Rt248 just east of Palmerton. It's one of those spots where a two lane hwy with no way to turn around a good 3/4 mile approaching the check point. I was pulled over late one night heading home from my misxxxxx house. Had a few beers in me too but luck was on my side. The cops work quick, two checking the interior of your car with flashlights, while one distracts you with the typical questions. Where you going, coming from and did you have any alcoholic drinks tonight? They never gave me a breath test. Good thing. If I ever see the lights again from a distance, I am pulling over and ditching to the river until they close up shop which I understand happens about 2a.
