Setting traps, saving lives
I would like to comment on Linda Klein’s letter about how she feels the police are out “setting traps” and watching local bars for drunks. So where does she believe they should be looking for suspected drunk drivers?

Bottom line is, if you are not doing anything wrong, what is your concern if they do happen to stop you? They just might be saving your life!
