Understanding DWI Checkpoints
CBS New York reported that these checkpoints were part of a “citywide crackdown on drunken driving.” Surprisingly, most fans were actually quite supportive of the checkpoints. One fan stated that he thought it was “kind of poaching on people” but it was worth it if it meant getting drunk drivers off the streets.
New York Police department urged that it was not aimed at Yankees fans merely part of a larger scheme to crack down on drunk driving. Additionally, a police source from the NY Post stated that “NYPD sporadically sets [DWI checkpoints]up around the stadium after games.” However, this particular DWI checkpoint was not a part of the special game-day unit. Maybe for comical effect, other Yankees fans wanted to know if the Mets fans were subject to the same level of scrutiny.
