I'm sorry, but what a trucker agrees to in his contract with the DOT has absolutely nothing to do with an ordinary citizen driving home. It's a Bright Red herring.
Checkpoints create traffic jams. Other Cops wearing themselves out pulling over sober drivers that make a u-turn in order to not have a forty minute wait. Hello, it's Gestapo time!
They say that they have a judge with them to signs warrants that allow them to stick a needle in your arm against your wishes. I didn't read the link.

MADD will never relinquish any of their power. What would happen if they ever said that they had made enough laws against drunk driving? That's right, they would cease to exist. There's way too much money running through that system for it to ever stop.
I've got a gig tonight. Yes, it's amateur night. Lucky for me, it's only a five mile drive. Still, it's five miles, at fender bender speeds, that could potentially alter my life for the worse by a monumental amount if I were to be caught over 0.08% BAC.
I will be taking it easy. One drink, or less, per hour will let me drive home sober.
