    Across the country roadblocks are being set up looking for drunk drivers. That's a good thing. However, random folks are being pulled over and asked to take a survey and give their blood, breath and saliva.

    Still can't find a link, but a man from Upper Merion, PA on his way to Disney with his family in tow was asked to take the survey for $60.00. There were police in the area only it was civilians who were collecting the data.

    Who gets the information? Where is it stored? What would these civilians do if you were a drunk driver? Jim Malcom was told they'd drive you home or set you up in a hotel.

    From the link this is nothing new. It's been done several times before. It's just the political atmosphere now that is making a difference.

    I think I would feel intimidated into doing it.

    "No," is a good word.
