    In florida there trying to pass a new bill at D.U.I. check points that if i person now says no to blowing into a breathalyzer to check the persons alcohol levels to see if they are driving drunk. They will now have on site judges to order a warrant for the person to blow right then and there..As someone who lost someone from a drunk driver hitting them i like this idea but many find it unconstitutional to there rights...why

    In most States, refusal to take a sobriety test is not an admission of guilt, but carries the same penalties as having failed the test.

    Driving is a privilege....the rules are simple. The rebels can take public transportation.

    In my state, you're treated as if you'd blown at the highest tier of intoxication. You always lose your license for a year, regardless of what happens in the criminal case. Bottom line is it's pretty risky to refuse and most DUI defense attorneys don't advise it.

    There's no reason to confound things with simplicity, so quit being logical.

    And on those driving on a suspended liscence for DUI.
    The vehicle they are driving should be impounded and auctioned off with the proceeds going to victims of drunk drivers. If owned by someone else and they knowingly gave it to a suspended liscence DUI person then they forefeit it as well.


    If they have nothing to drive they cannot drive drunk.
