The thing with DUIs is they're not willing to take any chances anymore, there have been too many accidents with repeat offenders. A co-worker was driving home the morning after and got nabbed, lost his license for 3 months, was out of work for that whole time because our job requires driving. He was eventually acquitted after 13months on technicalities, but that still didn't mean he wasn't over the legal limit and still behind the wheel.

Things like this are always bad when they happen to you, but you don't think about them unless they DO affect you, and too many people want stiffer punishments for these offenses, so it's not even worth trying it anymore.

yea its been a rough almost 9 months and is costing me a fortune to fight. I have over the "limit" but thats attainable at 2 drinks at dinner. Its just frustrating that I am guilty until proven innocent..

i SHOULD get off given the fact that i wasnt given my right to council and that the officer didnt see any signs of impairment (stumbling, slurring, etc)

So you blew over but seemed fine? That sucks. I made the mistake of being honest at a check stop once. Asked if I had been drinking I said yea I had a couple over the course of a few hours. Next thing was 21 questions and 3 cops standing there. I was so embarassed. They let me go, I think it was a bit of a scare tactic.

I disagree that the limit is bullshit.

As an example:
I have taken part in several BAC tests on another car forum and me being 6' 205lb blew 0.048 at the highest point and that was 7 rum a cokes over a 4 hour span. At 5 rum and cokes I felt impaired and incapable of driving.

I understand that people have different tolerances and each persons BAC level is dependant upon a multitude of factors but I think no good can come of this discussion as impaired driving is a very touchy topic.

This might be a stretch.
Does anyone know where you can get some convex mirrors. like those little stick on ones, that somewhat follow the same lines mirror it self?
thanks!

Check princess auto, I've seen some a good variety there with different shapes. Canadian Tire has ones that are small recatangles with rounded corners that look decent.

again, thats YOUR tolerance.. im 6'3 190lbs and drink 3oz drinks at a time.. i can finish off a 26oz bottle of vodka and feel completely fine..

the new limit is a hard line and not suggestive to anyone person, i understand that but the BAC compared to impairment should come into consideration.

Impairment is in the consideration, hundreds of thousands of tests prove that your BAC level directly relates to your impairment, this isn't even debatable. I implore you to find a test where someone drinks 26oz of vodka and does not show signs of impairment.

I mentioned that no good can come of this discussion.
