How is this new news? You can be arrested for drunk driving while simply walking to your car or sleeping on the hood. Or if you're in the car and your keys are in the glove box. It happens all the time. It sends a message that you might as well go for it and try to make it home because what's the difference?

Honest Bender: Lumpmoose: Lessons in jury nullification need to be taught in high school.

Lessons in criminal justice need to be taught in high school. You don't get a jury trial for a DUI conviction.

Your profile says you live in CA, where a quick Google tells me you can get a jury for a DUI trial. I haven't heard of anywhere you -can't- have a jury trial for DUI, especially if there is a chance you can end up in jail.
You have to request a jury trial, but that is your right.

Justice system: "Hey look, this guy wasn't actually driving drunk but the law is stupidly written enough that we can still book him despite the intent of the law!"
