A formal program of training was developed and is available through NHTSA to help law enforcement officers become more skillful at detecting DWI suspects, describing the behavior of these suspects, and presenting effective testimony in court....

Why MADD Should Oppose Red-Light and Speed Cameras

Why do we enforce laws?  Is it to deter crime and make our communities safer, or do we enforce laws to increase our city coffers?  This question is playing itself out throughout the United States as many cities are installing speed and red-light cameras.  Locally, the city of Springfield, Ohio has a long-standing photo enforcement program and Dayton is planning to install cameras in the downtown area.  Studies suggest that the cameras may actually increase collisions, but the revenue is hard to turn down.I recently came across an article from NOLA.com warning motorists of increased traffic stops in and around...

DUI Court Process: The Stopping Sequence

You are driving home when you see a car following you closely.  The car is acting unlike any other car you have ever encountered and you begin to wonder if you are in danger.  At that point you see the flashing emergency lights and hear the piercing wail of a siren.  You heartbeat begins to spike, your stomach sours with a flood of cortisol and your hands begin to sweat.  Little do you know that the officer's DUI investigation has begun. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (hereinafter NHTSA) provides the training manual for law enforcement in detection of drunk drivers. ...

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests: Validity

WHEN ARE THE STANDARDIZED FIELD TESTS VALID? The standardized field sobriety tests, as set forth in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Student Manual (Feb. 2006 ed.), are described in Session VIII.  The NHTSA manual provides the standards upon which every law enforcement officer is trained.  One important piece of information about standardization is included in the manual which may help the DUI practitioner provide context to a jury.Perhaps the most important statement about standardization can be found at VIII-19 which states: IT IS NECESSARY TO EMPHASIZE THIS VALIDATION APPLIES ONLY WHEN:THE TESTS ARE ADMINISTERED IN THE PRESCRIBED STANDARDIZED MANNER THE STANDARDIZED CLUES...

Dayton DUI Lawyer’s Creed; fight for the system

Our values suggest that when the government accuses you of a crime you have the right (and your attorney the duty) to challenge the evidence against you.  If attorneys vigorously fight your case, the police are trained to do a better job investigating and prosecuting crimes.  Judges who hold the state to a higher standard and prosecutors who properly exercise discretion, protect the citizens from tyranny.  Being pro-law enforcement should not ever mean we give police a pass, but that we hold them to such a standard that even in the most difficult case we trust the system.  This was...
