Making It Tough On Repeat Offenders

DUI, Indigestion, And Heartburn

A breathalyzer examination for DUI might return an inaccurate result for any number of reasons, but you can’t skew a breathalyzer reading with any of the “tricks” that some people have tried. Gum doesn’t work. Mints don’t work. One man in Australia tried guzzling perfume; it doesn’t work. One particular misconception that you might hear [...]

Even Tougher Than Nevada

If you think DUI laws are tough in Nevada, you might not care to live in Belarus, a tiny Eastern European nation bordered by Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia.

DUI Checkpoints

You can always count on one ritual of the holiday season. Police departments step up DUI enforcement; they create more DUI “squads” or “task forces” and set up more DUI checkpoints at more locations. Drivers at checkpoints are randomly screened, and those who appear to be driving under the influence may be asked to take [...]

Drunk Driving Laws Through The Decades

Like everything else in law, the matter of intoxicated driving has become complicated over time, and that trend will inevitably continue. In fact, only one thing is certain about DUI (driving under the influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated), and OUI (operating under the influence); every state punishes these crimes severely. The first arrest for drunk [...]

Marijuana-Related DUI in Nevada

Some people may claim that smoking dope doesn’t affect their ability to drive, but science is proving that they’re wrong. A breakthrough study conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) indicates – apparently definitively and for the first time – that smoking pot definitely, negatively affects the ability to drive. The NIDA studied [...]
