well done by our law enforcement teams. I am surprised no negative comments by the haters

Surely, even among the Sault Today commentary gang, there is NO ONE who would object to discouraging DUI. It's literally a matter of life and death, and who can argue with saving lives?

Guess the negative train passed by after all. Too bad you can't see any good anywhere, must be a lonely life.

Oh come on Pakadeva, over 2000 cars pulled over and harassed for no probable cause and only one (1) 90 day suspension. It goes on to say that dui charges throughout the year were ones stumbled upon at accident scenes and others as a result of tips from us!
This can hardly be described as 'good work' my dear.
It's not negativity its open eyes and comprehension.
