When all is said and done more is said than done.
Don't forget, if you push it to a trial, nearly every crusier has a camera in it these days. Odds are very high the entire thing was recorded, and that tape will be shown to the jury. If you appear intoxicated, the trial is pretty much over.

I think this is reasonable. The only way they can test your BAC is either a blood test or breathylyzer, it's not like you can test it next month, time is of the urgency.
I don't think there's a way the police can plant alcohol in your system to frame you- I just don't see the danger here.
I get the whole civil liberties point of view. It's just that also there is no constitutional right to drive a car on public roads either. I just think it should be quid pro quo...you drive on public roads, you agree to be given a breathalyzer at anytime. And if you blow under the legal limit, I would probably go as far to say the reading may not be used against you at all.

Police officers have quotas to meet. In February, it was more difficult to find drivers on the road due to the snow. I don't think it's a coincidence that the judge said, "Wow, eight DUIs?! I don't think I've ever seen that many."
Ever get around to looking at what you were charged with?
