This beats those whiny "Am I being detained, am I free to go" videos.
Start with: Stay under the limit and don't be an asshole and you should be fine.
How about just don't drink and drive...
DUI =/= DWI
You can get a DUI for taking cough medicine
Best way to avoid DUI checkpoints is to have a tiny bit of respect for the constitution and not allow them.
I vote this thread gets moved to the OT.
Then don't drive while under the influence of cough medicine. Sounds pretty simple.
Oh it will.
Or you know, you can just take the turn put prior to the checkpoint...
Never got how people were irresponsible enough to drive after they had been drinking.
Is that what they're calling it these days?
Jokes aside, any lawyer worth his salt should be able to make quick work of a DUI resulting from cough syrup, supposing such a thing did happen. But chances are, if you're worried about a DUI checkpoint, you're most likely pulling a Lohan.
I have a friend that just got a DWI because of these checkpoints. She didn't even drink much, as she was driving for her friend for their birthday.
I never really thought about it much, but it's fucking sinful that we allow these checkpoints. It's a complete invasion of privacy. What happened to probable cause or reasonable suspicion? If the checkpoints are for safety(which I assume is the argument), there should be no legal repercussions.
Who's to say you're "under the influence" of cough medicine? An arresting officer?
This too... If it's that effective.
Not everyone can afford a lawyer worth his salt
Just flash them a fake badge. They will find amusing and you can have a good laugh together.
stay at home, invite a few biddies over, get shitfaced and do the no pants dance
