They are targeting the I75 exit into downtown coming from the North

It's the first of several scheduled for the metro area.  Troopers will be posted at 7:00 p.m. through early Friday morning at the 7th street exit from southbound Highway 75

The message: Quit getting drunk at the cheap bars outside of the city or in your mom's basement. Get drunk at the pricy bars who pay us sales tax.

Maybe not; from the Whirled:

The checkpoint at 8th Street and Frankfort Avenue was the OHP's kick-off of saturation patrols across the area during the Memorial Day weekend, said OHP Lt. George Brown.

Of the arrests, seven were for DUI, one for drug possession and one other felony arrest. Ten citations were issued for transporting an open container, 10 were issued for no insurance and 13 for driving without a license or while under suspension.
Troopers also issued 47 warnings for various offenses, according to the OHP. Twelve vehicles were towed due to arrests.

I believe "open container" can be a cup of coffee or any beverage without a lid on it.

Last nights police roadblock near a Tulsa gay bar was a fabulous success:


TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police made 16 arrests during a DUI checkpoint overnight. Officers set up around 5th and Lewis in a special enforcement event.

In four and a half hours, police stopped 208 vehicles, made 16 arrests and issued 107 citations.

Twelve people were arrested for DUI, four for marijuana possession and one on an outstanding warrant.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Sand Springs Police and the ABLE Commission helped TPD with the DUI checkpoint, funded by an Oklahoma Highway Safety Office DUI enforcement grant.

I don't know what you mean targeting minorities...   That sounds racist.

Outstanding success! Nearly 6% of the vehicles they stopped were guilty of the crime they were stopped for. A great day for the 4th Amendment.

or

Big government intrudes on the lives of citizens and illegally stops every citizens trying to legally go to downtown Tulsa and spend money. They were wrong almost 95% of the time and did nothing but mess with law abiding citizens. With no reasonable suspicion they pulled everyone over for the crimes of less than 6% of the population. Assume guilty, stop everyone, declare success. the 4th Amendment is crying.

Drunk driving is bad. Freedom from unreasonable search and seizure is more important.

Or maybe it was just to take the air out of the Center of the Universe Music Festival, the same way they do Oktoberfest, Mayfest, and pretty much any effort Tulsa makes to keep the sidewalks from rolling up at night.  And we wonder why businesses wont locate here.
