Hey how about this idea? After someone's 21st birthday they can go to the MVA and sign up for a drunk driving test. They can bring a DD or whatever with them, along with a case of beer. They can drink to a certain BAC level, and perform the standard driver's test. If they complete the test with a passing score, the MVA can then print the recorded BAC on their new driver's license. If the person is then pulled over by a cop they cannot be booked unless they have a BAC over the one printed on their license. Hell they could even make a new course designed specifically to test someone's proficiency at driving with alcohol in their system.

This is strictly in the planning stages,as I just thought of it, so tell me what you think.

This makes way too much sense to ever get passed.

And if someone has since gone on a diet and lost weight? Their BAC wouldn't exactly apply then, would it? How about if you've been drinking, either get a DD or a cab. Is it THAT [censored] hard?

The arguments against this guy being locked up are simply non-existent.

I mean can we let this thread die already? Nobody thinks he shouldn't be locked up, including him; nobody is learning anything from anyone. It's just a bunch of people who feel the laws and police discretion have gone too far vs. people who disagree, end of story, let it go.

tuq,

wtf, stop being such a DD apologist. This guy should go to jail and be raped for the rest of his life. I can't believe you're even considering letting him loose to terrorize the sidewalks of Flagstaff. IMO the laws against DUI haven't gone far enough and beat cops don't have enough discretion, and I've yet to hear an argument proving me wrong.

Muresan,

Yes. Also, RDH was being sarcastic.

It's pretty sick how different you americans view drinking and driving versus people in Sweden, where I'm from. Alot of you argue that .08 is to low. Here you get fined if you have over 0.02 and if you're over 0.08 thats considiered major drinking and driving (dunno about the punishments) and I've never ever heard anyone complain about that.

So what?
