Drunk Driving Laws Are a Disgrace

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Sunday, March 27, 2011, 7: 57 AM

They’re a disgrace because thousands are convicted of DUI who probably are no danger to anyone, having their lives torn apart by the collateral consequences of a conviction, and the real drunks are still on the road killing and maiming. The MADD lobby has created a monster that is a wrecking ball in society but a magnificent cash cow for local governments and insurance companies.

Quite simply, breathalyzers do not work and the legal BAC limit of .08 is an unscientific, purely political and convenient myth to get as many convictions as possible, without doing anything meaningful about the dangers of real drunks driving on public roads.
