I'm not drunk officer

Postby Tavish » Sun Aug 07, 2005 6:52 pm

This may be old news to some, but it caught me completely offguard.

A relative of mine in Iowa just recently was recently charged with a DWI. Being from Kansas/MO I gave him my sympathies and asked what the fine/penalty ended up being. The monetary costs and suspended license didn't shock me all that much, but the use of an ignition interlock device as a requirement to receive a temporary license did. I honestly had never heard of the thing and thought he was pulling my leg. Anyone ever had or known someone with one of these bad boys?

Haven't got a friend with one of the puppies. They are kinda a pain, though it's for a good cause. Alcohol Abuse on the road is killing most drivers these days..(mostly teens) :-/

Also, I liked how you represented Ontario in the link :-b

We had to find some way to make the world safer in 8th grade, and this was my idea :-t :-t

They've been around for a while now... my question is how many dwi's has your cousin had? They are usually only busted out for repeat offenders like the 3 time winners of the dwi award...

It was his first, but knowing my cousin he was extremely far gone.

my brother's girlfriend's dad has one now. the only problem that i have with them is that they don't completely stop someone from driving if they are impaired.

i can blow in the thing, get the car started, then have someone else drive the vehicle. :-/

They should have a DNA analysis on the saliva you leave on it :-b And if you can pass it, why aren't you driving instead of the drunk person?

I think that'd be a cool toy to put on your key chain --- Hey buddy, you drunk? ---- nooothirrrrrr, aammm not drunthhh ---- *insert into mouth* --- HAH, you are drunk....

idk, im just weird. :-B

I like the tool though, drunk driving has taken too many lives already, including someone close to me, so i know the pain they bring. :~(

I wouldn't think it would be that hard to get around either. Suppose you were out at a bar and had a few too many. Just stagger over to one of the girls and say "If I pay you ten bucks could you go out to my car and blow on my thing." ;-D

The one my friend has requires you to blow in it while you're driving every 10-15 minutes or so.
