Will I Be Required To Use Restricted Plates (A.K.A Party Plates)?

When will you be required to use restricted plates?If you thought that public shaming was a barbaric practice relegated to the distant past, you have not been driving through Ohio.  Ohio was the first state in the country to adopt a form of public humiliation by adopting special license plates (called restricted plates) for drunk driving offenders.  Use of the “scarlet letter” restricted plates became mandatory in 2004.

What Are (And What Are Not) Standardized Field Sobriety Tests

The dream of implementing Standardized Field Sobriety Tests has long been a goal of law enforcement.  Extensive government testing was begun in the 1970's to determine a scientifically valid way of helping police officers detect intoxication in drivers under suspicion of drunk driving.  Prior to this undertaking, officers were doing their best to gather evidence of drunk driving, or simply not arresting for the offense due to the difficulty of proving impairment in court.  Some more ingenious tests included throwing coins on ground; if the suspect could pick them up without falling over, they must be sober.  Other popular tests that...

Defending Your DUI: The Gastric Bypass Defense

Gastric bypass surgery (also called bariatric surgery) is a procedure that drastically reduces the size of the stomach which has a dramatic effect when consuming alcohol.  Gastric bypass surgery results in alcohol moving much more quickly from the stomach into the small intestine.  80% of alcohol is absorbed in the small intestine, this surgery results in a much higher peak BAC than with the equivalent amount of alcohol consumed before the surgery.  Due to these anatomical and physiological changes, drinking after gastric bypass surgery is similar to drinking on an empty stomach, but creates an even higher peak BAC because there...

Drugged Driving: Roadside Saliva Tests

We have written about Ohio law enforcement's focus on drugged driving.  In particular, the Ohio State Highway Patrol has invested heavily in training officers in the Drug Recognition Expert protocol.  There are but a handful of police officers that after years of being on the road receive Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) training. Until recently, there were no approved portable roadside testers. This recently changed with Dräger offering into the market it’s newest device, the Dräger DrugTest ® 5000. It is a portable drug testing device that officers can use at roadside. It is based upon collecting oral fluid (mixed saliva)...

Why Do They Call it Moonshine?

Why Do They Call It Moonshine?Moonshine is as American as apple pie.  Prohibition did not stop people from wanting alcohol.  Prohibition did not stop people from wanting money.  Put those two desires together and you have the illegal production of alcohol called "moonshining."  "Moonshiners" is a term used for people who did their production at night to avoid the government agents (G-Men) and Treasury Agents (T-Men) who patrolled the hills of Appalachia looking to stop production of illegal hootch.Production of moonshine illegal alcohol required the use of stills.  The stills were heated by fires and produced tell-tale smells, sounds and...

Ohio’s Felony OVI Look-Back Rule

Ohio has established a twenty year felony OVI look-back period. A sixth or greater OVI (drunk driving) offense within a twenty year look-back period is a fourth degree felony OVI. R.C. 4511.19(G)(1)(d).  Another harsh provision under Ohio OVI  law is the “once a felony, always a felony” rule contained in R.C. 4511.19(G)(1)(e), meaning that any future DUI regardless of how many years have passed is charged as a third-degree felony.  This means that if you have many years of sobriety in between DUI convictions, you still face a felony rather than having your case treated as a first-in-six misdemeanor offense.Felony OVI...

OVI & Your Brain: Who Cares About Impairment?

More Faulty OVI Breath Test Assumptions One of the faulty assumptions underlying OVI evidential breath testing is the assumption that the tests are measuring the ability of alcohol to impair your brain.  They do not.  The breath test for OVI does not care how, or even if, the alcohol is impairing your brain only that it is in your breath via your lungs via your blood.  The machines do not test venous blood but arterial blood utilizing the scientific principle of Henry’s Law.  As alcohol can be at different rates throughout your body, the machine is not measuring impairment.During peak absorption...
