    “A report stated that each of these drivers’ was towed.” i suspect strongly that it was their respective cars that were towed, and not the drivers.

    DUI check point. What a lie, just an excuse to investigate everyone that drove down that road. How about having a house to house search for what ever the cops can find. Kick in everyone’s door and drag them out in the street Nazi style.
