There Are Better Ways To Enforce OVI Law

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently concluded its annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” OVI campaign, a 20-day enforcement effort running through Labor Day. The national crackdown aims to prevent the incidence of impaired driver related highway fatalities over the extended Labor Day weekend.In Ohio, the statewide “Drive Sober” campaign means local law enforcement will conduct grant-funded high-visibility OVI checkpoints in an effort to catch any drivers who’ve had too many beers at a Labor Day barbecue.

If you have a client who does not speak english (or "cop english"), or if you have a client that does not hear well, they should not be considered impaired if they cannot follow the officer's instructions during the standardized field sobriety tests.The National Sobriety Testing Resource Center has put out a study, Impediments to Testing: The Impact of Hearing Impairment and Language Barriers on the Field Sobriety Testing Function which shows exactly how unfair the standardized field sobriety tests are under these conditions. This study states that all officers conducting field sobriety tests at roadside should know the availability of deaf interpreters. ...

OVI Checkpoints Miss The Point Says ABI

The American Beverage Institute is an industry-sponsored advocacy group that has stood up to Mother Against Drunk Drivers and their campaing for government funded OVI checkpoints. The beverage group says that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) should back off from the roadblocks and instead support roving patrols to catch heavy drinkers. "By promoting sobriety checkpoints, MADD and NHTSA are ignoring the root cause of today's drunk driving problem - hard core alcohol abusers,'' ABI managing director Sarah Longwell said in a statement."Because they are highly visible by design and publicized in advance, roadblocks...

State Patrol Seat Belt Law Campaign: What Is The Seatbelt Law?

Troopers Will Ticket You For Seat Belt Law Violations Starting Monday!
