Fort Worth police initially said they could not immediately find any record of their officers being involved in the roadblock, but on Tuesday police spokesman Sgt. Kelly Peel said that the department's Traffic Division coordinated with the NHTSA on the use of off-duty officers after the agency asked for help with the survey.
"We are reviewing the actions of all police personnel involved to ensure that FWPD policies and procedures were followed," he said. "We apologize if any of our drivers and citizens were offended or inconvenienced by the NHTSA National Roadside Survey."

He also noted the fine print on a form given to drivers informs them their breath was tested by "passive alcohol sensor readings before the consent process has been completed."

The government is in full info mode....and this is just a light start. the real bad part is if you drink, smoke, smoke something else, have ANY intake that is traceable, this info will be compiled, listed and sold to many companies. It will also be used for controlling methods of varying degrees by obamacare. Do you really think they will let you slide on healthcare if you have any traceable vice? You will pay out the nose, and then have limits, hope all along they do not try to "reform" you and everything you own. Remember, the libs are great at spending other people's money to fund controlling their lifes...
