The 2006 International Roadcheck: Just keep your eye out for that Mr. Bandit, bastard!


Like some kind of law enforcing Super Friends, the combined forces of state, federal, Candian and Mexican authorities (yes, we're also trying not to snicker at the last two) are banding together into one big pseudo-Buford T. Justice. Yup, it's that time of the year again — the 19th International Roadcheck — when evil-do'ers looking to ship their illegal fire-water from Texarkana better have a Bandit to draw the law away, cause they'll be gunning for truckers. Starting June 6th, the three-day, 72-hour smack-down of illegalness is hoping to beat out last year's results — 1,057 inspections in Michigan alone. Better watch out Snowman, Buford's a-comin'!
