NH DWI Van is a Waste of Taxpayers’ Money

Posted by Ryan Russman | Oct 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

As reported by the Union Leader, a DWI mobile command center will be at sobriety checkpoints by midsummer. The van holds the technologies necessary to test blood and take fingerprints, has room for holding cells, computers and even a bail bondsman. The single van will be available to police throughout the state and will be used at target areas and DWI saturation points.

Liquor Commission enforcement division chief Eddie Edwards states that the van will be for “public safety, for public health and to generate revenue”.

Though the van might make processing easier, with a $450,000 price tag, I believe the money would have been better spent putting additional cops at DWI target areas across the entire state, instead of one van at one spot.
