Perhaps...but once the FAA says it's needed you probably shouldn't wait for what is a routine maintenance task.

I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

We only have ourselves to blame for a large part of this problem. For some reason we insist on putting people who can shoot a basketball, or carry a football, or hit a baseball 450 feet on a pedestal. This alone is not deserving of respect. The only difference between them and us is how much money they make. Money can’t buy you love and it can’t buy you respect either. I respect my mailman more than…

I do believe the way the QPD runs this is to simply look to see if you're wearing a seat belt or driving erratically or some other obvious violation. From there that can then lead them to other things once they check your license or can see inside your car but it's all based on probable cause. They can't even ask to search your car anymore like they used to do.

Rockford Leads in DUI Arrests for 7th Straight Year

The Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) has released the results of its' 24th annual survey of Illinois police departments, and for the 7th straight year, the Rockford Police Department leads the state in DUI arrests with 556 in 2013. 

Naperville was a close second with 553, followed by Decatur (485), Springfield (410), Carol Stream (392), Elmhurst (300), Normal (279), Rock Island (274), Oak Lawn (262) and Aurora (256). 

The Quincy Police Department had 125 DUI arrests in 2013, while the Adams County Sheriff's Department had 44 arrests.

The biggest increase in arrests among departments was in the city of Champaign where DUI arrests jumped by 141% in 2013 compared to 2012.  Other municipalities with large increases from 2012 to 2013 are Chicago Heights (63.6%), Bloomington (55.7%), Loves Park (48.6%), Lombard (41.4%) and Gurnee (40.6%).

“Of all the people who died in Illinois motor vehicle crashes, thirty-five percent lost their lives in crashes involving a drunk driver, that is more than 350 deaths each year,” said Rita Kreslin, Executive Director of AAIM. “Departments that make more DUI arrests and who have effective DUI enforcement in their communities are saving lives by preventing impaired driving crashes and crash fatalities.”

The survey, conducted by AAIM and funded through a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation, covered nearly 700 departments across the state, with 84% of the departments responding.
