The problem with drunk people is that, too often, they are enablers of drinking and driving. A person, clearly intoxicated and leaving a party to drive home, is much more able to convince his drunk friends that he is okay to drive than he is his sober friends.
But that’s not 19-year-old Logan Shaulis’ style. No, when he got drunk, he took the law into his own hands and set up a DUI checkpoint of his own. From The Huffington Post:
Troopers say 19-year-old Logan Shaulis, of Somerset, [Pennsylvania] parked his vehicle diagonally across state Route 601 and set up road flares at about 4 a.m. Saturday.
A motorist who stopped says Shaulis claimed he was a trooper and demanded to see a driver’s license, registration and insurance papers.
Part of the problem with that, aside from it being illegal to impersonate a cop, is that he drunkenly drove to the point where he set up the DUI stop.
Shaulis was arrested and charged with drunken driving and impersonating a public servant, among others.
Still, minus the part where he drank and drove, you gotta admire his desire to keeping drunks off the road.
