I see where you can be stopped on the road for a random car check to find out if the driver has been drinking (without reason!)... is this so? They are thinking about doing the same in Canada...but many think it would be an infringement on one's rights?
We have had that for yrs in NZ
W dont have a problem..hell we even have what is called the 'booze bus' they set up a road block, check drivers with a blow checker, if thats =ve then one has achoice of blowing in the big blow meter or a blood test.
Hell the get people with outstanding warrants, fines, stolen goods, drugs everything.
Infringement of rights? yeah right...they ar getting all those people who are infringing on my bloody right to be able to drive on the road and not get killed....
Infringing on my right to know my home is safe while Im out, by locking up those with stolen goods
Infringing on my right to be able to know they are locking up those who will be ramming drugs down my grand children throughts later on.
And I tell you what, getting pulled over on a blockade...and being clean...thats really cool feeling...the 'inconvirnce' is about 2 to 3 mins from time stopping in line and driving off.....hell I can live with that a couple times a yr knowing our roads and communty is going to be safer.
1 booze bus and blockade is able to check a few 1000 cars in 1 night....
Am I for it, damn right I am...and the crime /drink driving stats, and outstanding fines etc drop significantly.
