Looks like a dashboard cam might have been helpful in this case. Anyway, I can empathize with this woman's situation in that I don't drink and drive. I don't have any experience with being pulled over and suspected of driving under the influence. I too would have found the situation absurd but our society has mandated a zero tolerance for driving under the influence. It's getting to where I don't even want to leave my house. I don't choose to fly anymore unless I absolutely have to. I don't like all the hassle with the TSA screening etc. No I'm not saying the screening is unnecessary but I just choose to avoid it if I can. How do you strike a fair balance between safety and infringing on peoples rights?
If a LEO officer pulls me over, I must comply with the law. It's just that I don't have any experience with being tested for DUI and I would have no idea what to expect. I would hope the officer would understand my lack of knowledge about the procedure as just that, and not that I was trying to be difficult and insolent. I didn't know that if I refused a roadside test, I would be put in handcuffs and taken to a police station. Good to know, I will never refuse one now!
