Intoxicated Driver Management 1.0

Intoxicated Driver Management 1.0 

You are on patrol when you observe a vehicle stopping long before it arrives at the red light. Then it pulls forward and stops several times until it arrives at the appropriate stopping point for the light. Do you know, statistically speaking, what the probability is that the driver is intoxicated? Can you stop the vehicle and speak with the driver based on what you have just observed? You decide to stop the vehicle. You ask for a drivers license and observe the driver pass by the license three times before you point out to him where his license is. Having observed all of this can you ask the driver about his alcohol consumption that evening? Can you require him to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests or is that a violation of his constitutional rights? This course will answer these and many more questions about handling the intoxicated driver.
