Being married to a member of the U.S. Armed Forces has certain benefits. If your spouse is in the military, you may utilize Tricare for health benefits and the commissary for grocery shopping and related expenses.

Even though they are legal, OVI checkpoints are always going to be somewhat controversial. At a checkpoint, the police may stop every single driver to see if they're intoxicated before allowing them to continue.

Many drivers think it is unfair that the police can pull everyone over, even without cause, at a checkpoint.
