The DUI Exception to the Constitution

The Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor, Inc. - the story of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) obtaining multiple exceptions to the Constitution, in a fruitless attempt to reduce the incidence of drunk driving. The fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments have been ruled, by the Supreme Court, to not apply to defendants accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. Warrantless, suspicionless searches, compelled testimony against yourself, denial of jury trial, all for a bunch of MADD girls. And that compelled testimony is usually your breath into a machine, with so many possibilities for false positives that it should be inadmissible as evidence. But, since it is usually the only evidence used, there's a huge market for consumer breathalyzers.

unintended consequences (maybe) the do gooders, control freaks and bliss ninnies will never learn.
