    I think the Govt's efforts against alcohol has created a generation of truckers unable to maintain bearing around strong drink. =) /sarc

    Still, refusal to submit to a breathalyzer being equivalent to a an admission of guilt is bogus.

    Suspension is not revocation either.

    When a cop scoops a guy out of a wreck with falsified logs and clear evidence of negligent driving they still need to be able to make a case. Not rely on "here take a breathalyzer or admit to guilt."

    Lazy police work leads to lack of justice.

    If you refuse a breathlyzer they give you a blood test if you refuse that it is an admission of guilt.

    And what's to stop the cop from falsely claiming that you refused the blood test as well?

    Precisely. The ####ed up options for duplicity on the cop's part are endless

    I dont think the cop needs to worry about falsifying for the idjut. Laying the truck over with an open beer can seen in the cab doesnt take a rocket scientist (as well as smell of alcohol on breath) to figure out if the driver was OUI/DWI

    The cop was being polite and giving the driver the benefit of doubt. Yet billigerance doesnt mean sober or intelligent
     
    MGE Dawn Thanks this.
