If it is so effective, why isn't it installed in all autos?

I don't get why people still write that on a report. It's a Criminal Defense attorneys dream, since you cannot SMELL alcohol per say, and that smell is no indicator of their actual BAC or impairment.

I just did some time on a criminal jury. Police reports were among the evidence we considered. Some were more detailed than others, but when one cop testified that one of the witnesses "smelled of alcohol", we accepted her word for it, especially since an ER doctor had independently opined that the same person was mildly intoxicated.

If the only evidence offered was a year-old scribble of "I smelled alcohol", it wouldn't have been convincing. Considered in the context of other evidence, it was.

I had one of those things, what a farking torture device.

even as a heavy drinker I'd be cool with having one in the car if it was set to .08 and cost me nothing (and didn't go off every 10 mins while you drove) unfortunately there is way too much money to be made by letting people drive drunk.

Au contraire. Having hung around enough drunks in my time. I have to say that, yes, you can smell it on their breath. Alcohol evaporates out of the blood via the aveoli, proportionally to the concentration in the blood, and is exhaled.

You CAN make it worse... It its your first offense, its totally up to the judge if you do jail time.   The circumstances surrounding the arrest play into the decision... If you know you were plastered, that ain't gonna work in your favor... Then again, neither is 4x the limit.

You cannot smell ethanol. What you smell is the beverage it's self.  The "smell" that people constantly contribute to "being drunk" is often ketone bodies, which ironically enough are produced by a condition which mimics being drunk, and is generally a bad idea to lock up in the drunk tank.

Next time you should take a swing at the cop, or tell him you're going to quick get you're gun. They love that.

Do you mean you can't smell it on a person's bath?

Humans definitely have the ability to smell ethanol.

2013-08-05 04:03:59 PM
As for the whole "smell" issue, it depends on a few factors. First off, and this is obvious, is the person doing the smelling. I had a co-worker who could tell if I'd had even one the night before.

The second is the beverage itself. Say you have a Bourbon or scotch, you're probably not setting off too many alarms. And equivalent amount of gin will cause people to ask if you've been drinkin'.

"You know why I pulled you over?"
"Depends on how long you were following me!"
"Why don't we just take it from the top?"
"(sigh) Here goes: I sped. I followed too closely. I ran a stop sign. I almost hit a Chevy. I sped some more. I failed to yield at a crosswalk. I changed lanes at the intersection. I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and speeding!"
"Is that all?"
"No... I have unpaid parking tickets."
 
2013-08-05 05:48:20 PM
Although not the smartest things to say, could have helped diffuse the situation if the cop isn't too big of a dick.

/He was already drunk and speeding, so not too much to lose.
 
2013-08-05 06:16:53 PM
I did the same thing when I was younger and dumber. The cop was asking me to do the field-sobriety-test stunts, and I initially tried, but quickly realized that I was just making myself look more ridiculous. I said, "Do we have to go through this charade? I'm wasted; we both know it."

/not proud
//at least no one put a freaking news story about it on the Internet

Like you, I failed that same test. Unlike you, I still did not receive a DWI/DUI after actually saying to the cop, "I can't even do that sober." The next evening, sober as a judge, I tried to recite it backwards and it turns out I was telling the truth. While I could get through it, I stuttered and paused multiple times while trying to think backwards. However, I did pass the regular field test and everything, but since he detected alcohol on my breath he told me lock my car and...get this...the cop gave me ride home!

I was a kid, and haven't driven drunk in 20 years. It's a nice bonus that I live in a town where every neighborhood has local bars or liquor stores a block from your house, many operating 24 hours per day. When I come home and park, I know the rest of the night is mine to screw up, but without going to jail. There is also a mom-n-pop deli/convenience store nearby that delivers booze (no, seriously, they do), plus whatever sandwich, cigarettes or common household items you want. It keeps us off the road even if we've only had a few drinks.

dickfreckle: There is also a mom-n-pop deli/convenience store nearby that delivers booze (no, seriously, they do),


There's (at least) one near me that does it.  I've used their service a few times when I knew I was over the limit and ran out.  I think they just tack on about $8 even though it's less than 2 miles and then I usually tip a few bucks.  (Doesn't everybody tip a few bucks for getting delivery?).

It really makes for an expensive 12-pack, but cheaper than a DUI or worse.

Now I've just learned to make sure i have way more than I think I'll want before I even start drinking.

Mine charges only typical convenience store prices (not obscenely more than you pay at a grocery or liquor store, but no delivery fee). And yes, everyone should tip on deliveries, especially in my neighborhood where deliveries are on bikes and the humidity is at 98% in August.

Thing is, they also have po-boys, meat loaf, veggies or whatever all made in an actual kitchen. None of that nacho and wrinkled hot-dog-from-yesterday-morning crap. You and I both know that when you're drunk at home, you need all of these things.

Also, toilet paper, condoms (actually free, from a jar, or you can upgrade if you wish)...and I once asked for a small Phillips screwdriver and they farking had one.

I think that's the gimmick. I said the same "you got me, let's go."
