Do you drive? Do you drink? You need to be be prepared.Submitted by dice on Sat, 11/09/2013 - 16:42
Disclaimer: Of course I'm not suggesting you go drink and drive. But as with all laws, they quickly morph from well intended pieces of legislation to tools of subjugation, extortion and excuses for the police state expansion. This is the information you need to be aware of when venturing into the world you find yourself in.
Be sure to check on your state and local laws as well. I'm not a lawyer and this isn't legal advice but information for you to consider.
So we've all either been in the situation or know someone who has. I'm sure you've heard the horror stories as well.
While the minutia may differ, along with state laws, the general advice from DUI lawyers is the same. This could be the information that saves you many years of legal problems.
All situations are different, but you need to be aware of what exactly is going on should you be stopped.
The video below highlights how it could possibly be to your detriment to refuse and is important to take into consideration as well.
The moral is, it's probably a bad idea to drink and drive. If you do, be aware of the possibilities and don't be a victim. I hope this helps and if anyone has additional info they'd like me to post here feel free. Thanks.

A TN officer, Tim Stone, sits down for an interview with The Modern Dunkard Magazine. Read it here.
