Nothing like the holiday spirit.

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.

Staff Report, News & Observer (Raleigh, NC), 4 July 2011

There were eight drug-related arrests and 34 arrests for driving without a license or with a revoked license. One stolen vehicle was also recovered.
