I'm on my way home from Lowe's around 8:30 pm and I could see in the distance the blinking lights of a patrol car. It must be pretty bad I thought with the orange barrels. On the passenger side a orange sign read be prepared to stop. Huh? A few feet on the driver's side another orange sign read Have your driver's license ready. Several vehicles did u-turns and that's when it dawned on me it was a checkpoint for a sobriety test. My first ever. It was nothing like I have seen on TV. This nice officer introduced himself and purpose and asked me for my DL; looked at it; asked for my birthday then handed it back to me. I had my proof of insurance ready, moistened my lips with ready to take a breath tests though I don't drink I just expected it to happen. I guess he saw my big bag of pretzels opened next to me .
