This is a discussion on DUI "No refusal" this weekend... within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; "No refusal" DUI enforcement campaign starts Friday - Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee...
Here in North Carolina they have already been running the revenue enhancement checkpoints for a few days.

I think theyre doing something like that on the highway next to my place. Im glad too...i live across from a liquor store and theyre always bumping into each other in front of my driveway.
My question is why is Homeland Security involved in the violation of a state law ?
Hmmmm, interesting law. From implied consent to forced compliance. Don't get me wrong. I am against any kind of impaired driving. Its just that laws of this type make me nervous. Someone will always come up with a new novel way to apply them for other purposes.The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is taking a new approach to DUI patrols with a "No Refusal" campaign.
This means that people pulled over who are suspected of driving under the influence must take a blood test if asked to by the officer. Previously, a DUI driver could refuse to submit to the blood test. The "No Refusal" law passed this year changing that law.
Has anyone seen the 4th amendment laying around ???
The Tennessee Dept. of Safety and Homeland Security seems to have misplaced it somewhere...
If seen, please notify the proper elected officials by kicking them out of office this November.

I see LEO's/officials quoting numbers all the time....but seldom do they say if those numbers are alcohol related.In Tipton County, traffic fatalities are up and officials hope this new law will bring those numbers back down.
"Already in Tipton County, we've had 726 crashes and six fatalities and we want to do what we can to prevent this," added Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley.
Wrong answer. Their priority is obey the Constitution. If they see someone weaving or behaving erratically stop them. That is like saying we are going to go into everyone's house to see if it is a meth lab and claiming that their top priority is public safety.Officials say keeping drivers safe is their top priority
This ain't all that good an idea me thinks.........
