The Wake County Traffic Safety Task Force, an amalgamation of most of the police departments in the County, set up what must have been a massive check point on the night of 3 July 2011, the night that most of your small towns were having their fireworks. The area they set up their check point, (Intersection of Poole and Barwell Road) is a feeder road in and out of Raleigh, is just outside of what would be thought of as Southeast Raleigh, one of the cities relatively problematic areas. It is a feeder road in and out of town. In order to get 81 arrests, they must have pulled a monstrous number of people.
