Post Title

Drunk driving is dangerous. No one disputes that. That is why legislatures have imposed ever more severe penalties. Because, in addition to making laws, the legislature makes statements, often about behavior or conduct that society approves or disapproves. Society approves of home ownership, so mortgages receive an interest tax deduction and society disapproves of narcotics, so possession of heroin carries long prison terms.

Nothing funny about a DUI in Tennessee

When a Tennessee state police trooper or a local police or sheriff's deputy pulls you over on suspicion of driving under the influence, you don't expect special treatment. You hope the law enforcement officer treats you fairly, and that you aren't singled-out for something more unpleasant, such as abuse or manipulation by the officer.

BAC? There's an app for that

If you were having a drink at a restaurant or bar, would you know how many you can have before you would exceed the legal limit in Tennessee of 0.08 Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)? If you exceed this limit, you are in danger of being arrested and convicted for a DUI, which can have long term consequences, be very expensive, and potentially life threatening.
