Ah, I see a formulaic little news item typical for this time of year:
As the holidays approach, Vermont State Police are stepping up enforcement.
Very good. Details?
Troopers, along with local and county law enforcement agencies, will be conducting DUI checkpoints and increasing patrols in Windham County from Dec. 16 to Dec. 30.
Uh, boss? Question over here.
You’re doing special DUI checkpoints for the holidays, and you’re ending them on Decemer 30. Really.
Ever hear of New Year’s Eve? Biggest night of the year for drinking and driving?
Maybe they’re gonna have Jim Deeghan on duty that night.
