Re: "No refusal" DUI checkpoints
I am against drinking and driving as well (not that I think anyone will admit they are pro drinking and driving), but this may actually allow a person to pass a test where they would have failed if given a breathalyzer on the spot.
-for instance, If I had too many beers at the bar and I get stopped at one of these check points where I refuse a breathalyzer, think about the amount of time that will pass until I actually get my blood drawn. By the time the police cuff me and stuff me, read my rights, do my paper work, then get me to the hospital it could easily take an hour. When was the last time any of you went to your local ER? I work in one so I know how long stuff takes. It could take an hr or even two until they get blood drawn. What if I have crap for veins and it takes even longer?
That's just an example why I don't like that idea. I've always told ppl that if they are drinking and driving to demand a blood test vs a breathalyzer for that very reason. Guess working in the medical field give me a different outlook on it
