Drugging and driving is as bad as drinking and driving.

The legal consequences of drug-impaired driving are the same as a DWI for alcohol. If the alleged offender has a controlled substance on his or her person, they may have added possession charges. It’s important that you confront your DWI charges with a strong defense. Retaining an experienced atto...

Finally, we get some coverage on these ridiculous breath test machines. https://nyti.ms/2JLfLZh

I just went to trial on one of these last week. The judge threw out the breath test evidence because my client probably had hand sanitizer under his nails - that he could be seen chewing - before he took the test. These are not credible and reliable protocols.
I'm not a scientist, but I believe they (scientists) should be the ones to maintain any instruments used to convict people of crimes - Not dirty police stations.

Thank you New York Times.

No refusal of sobriety test in action for Harris County during the World Series

Law enforcement "out in force" looking for DWI offenders. Be careful tonight and GO ASTROS!

“We are out there in force. We’re going to have extra officers on the streets, we’re going to have extra prosecutors working to facilitate these officers. Getting the people that make the poor decisions process through so the officers can get back out faster,“ warns Teare.

He also says the county is treating the next few days like they do any major holiday, which means you can’t refuse to take a sobriety test.

The Astros are just one win away from another World Series title. Now back in 2017 when the Astros became World Series Champs, they won while they were on the road. If they win this year, here at home, the city needs to be prepared.
