    NMA alert - Just say no to "voluntary" checkpoints

    Nothing says Happy Holidays like getting caught up in a roadblock followed by one of NHTSA’s elves asking you for a “voluntary” blood sample. We originally told you about this ongoing roadside “research project” a few weeks back (NMA E-Newsletter #255: Danger Business). Since then, it seems that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and its contractor Pacific Institute for Research Evaluation (PIRE) have picked up the pace, perhaps trying to wrap up their work by the end of the year. Over the last couple of weeks, additional news reports have surfaced of “stop and stick” roadblocks in St. Charles County, Missouri, and Reading, Pennsylvania. These recent operations follow the template we described previously. Random motorists are diverted into a holding area manned by police . . .

    If a LEO is in the roadway directing you to a "parking area" no citizen would feel they have the option to drive around that LEO. IT IS A ILLEGAL STOP!!! Hold that LEO accountable.

    By the way, the St. Charles top cop terminated his departments association with the "survey" when it became know that his officers were involved.

    Direct you to a "parking area"? Ya know they are going to rape you ... drive away quickly

    Oldest trick in the book...over in Miami, hoodlums replaced "Dolphins" signs with their own, leading folks to an alley where they robbed them....
