5 Reasons teenagers have a higher risk for DUI accidents

Being a teenager comes with a lot of new responsibilities, life lessons and getting a feel for how the real world works. Grasping reality and the serious consequences of certain actions is difficult because most teenagers are still living at home under the rules of their parent(s) or guardian(s) and don't understand the real-life battle that comes with facing a serious offense. How can they understand the effects a DUI can have on their future when they're only just beginning to grow into their adult self?

DRE and DUI's

If you are ever in a situation where you are being accused of driving under the influence of drugs (prescription or illicit), it is important to know that you may be asked to take a DRE examination. A drug recognition evaluator (DRE) is a police officer who took a class which purported to teach him or her how to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs other than or in addition to alcohol. These officers are given basic instruction on the effects of different types of drugs on a human body as it relates to DUI's. As with alcohol related DUI's, Attorney Craig Rosenstein wants you to know that it is unwise to do the roadside balancing tests or submit to the drug recognition evaluation. It would be wise to firmly but respectfully decline to take any type of field sobriety test (balancing tests) or DRE examination, because the information that is gathered always presumes impairment and is one sided and lacks scientific reliability.

Why All Cops Should Have to Wear Cameras on Duty

The City of Rialto, California recently reported that after they required police officers to wear cameras on duty, citizen complaints dropped by 88 percent in the first year. This idea has created a sparking debate across the country, and recently the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) endorsed the idea. The ACLU also emphasized the potential for the technology to be misused and recommended policies to minimize the potential downsides. "Although we generally take a dim view of the proliferation of surveillance cameras in American life, police on-body cameras are different because of their potential to serve as a check against the abuse of power by police officers," the civil liberties group argues.

Miranda Rights

What is the resulting effect if a police officer does not read the Miranda warnings verbatim to a suspect? Put another way, do police officers have to provide Miranda to suspects in its exact form? The short answer is no. Certain warnings must be given before a suspect's statement made during custodial interrogation could be admitted in evidence. The general rule is that Miranda warnings must reasonably convey the rights afforded to the defendant. "We have never insisted that Miranda warnings be given in the exact form described in that decision." Duckworth v. Eagan, 492 U.S. 195, 203, 109 S.Ct. 2875, 2880, 106 L.Ed.2d 166, 177 (1989). The warning must touch all the "bases required by Miranda." The question is whether the warnings reasonably "convey to [a suspect] his rights as required by Miranda."

Diabetes and DUIs

Many diabetics often experience low blood sugar levels, also known as hypoglycemia. When a diabetic person reaches such a state they can show symptoms commonly associated with an intoxicated driver. For example, they may have slurred speech, poor balance, may appear drowsy, and have impaired motor abilities. As you can imagine being pulled over by a police officer while experiencing these symptoms will most likely lead to failed field sobriety tests.
