You feel braver since your socially conditioned safety stops or filters are circumvented.  But how does it affect your hearing?According to studies, "[a]uditory acuity is not generally affected in humans at low blood alcohol levels (less that 0.10 g/dL).  Pihkanen & Kauko (1962) reported impairment in two out...

OVI Case Law Update: State v. McMahon

In State v. McMahon, 12TRC-34824B, the city of Cincinnati appealed a ruling which granted a motion to suppress.  The trial court suppressed the results of McMahon’s breath test after determining that the director of health had not promulgated the necessary requirements under R.C. 3701.143 for obtaining the access card required for operation of an Intoxilyzer 8000 machine.The issue for appeal was whether the trial court correctly found that the director of health had failed to promulgate the qualifications required for the issuance of an access card to those seeking to operate an Intoxilyzer 8000 machine.  Pursuant to R.C. 3701.143, the director...
