There Are Better Ways To Enforce OVI Law

These well-intentioned enforcement efforts, however, are misguided, ineffective and violative of American values.Dismal arrest rates are common across Ohio and the country,...

Ohio OVI Blitz Continues Through Labor Day

This weekend saw local jurisdictions fully implement the annual Ohio OVI blitz known as "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."  The enforcement action will last until September 7, 2015 and will be accompanied by radio, television and news coverage. The efforts are funded by massive federal grants and allows local and state police forces to garner massive overtime for the troops.

Intoxilyzer 8000 Biased Against Americans

The Intoxilyzer 8000 is used in Europe under the brand name Lion.  On their website [HERE] they describe the process of breath alcohol physiology.  There is one glaring difference however. They use a 2300:1 ratio instead of a 2100:1 ratio.  So?

(thanks to DUIstopped.us for this example). If this is true, it means that machines in the US are more biased...
