Serpas Signal

The experiment: Do traffic checkpoints even work in "wintry mix" conditions?


I'm asking for a friend because it figures to be a busy night out there on the roads.

So if you're attending either of these events (or traveling between them, perhaps) do be advised that safe driving practices are encouraged. 
The New Orleans Police Department’s Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint, in Orleans Parish, on Thursday January 23, 2013, beginning at approximately 9:00 P.M. and will conclude at approximately 5:00 A.M.  Motorists will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation available if requested, i.e., proof of insurance, driver’s license, etc. 
I hope the Traffic Division officers don't have to stand out in the wintry mix conditions the entire time, though.  Or, at least, if they do, maybe they'll have a way to cope with the cold. A comforting beverage of some sort would be ideal.
