States challenged to find ways to test for drugged drivers

Medical marijuana is beginning to be accepted in more and more states. Not in Tennessee. In some states even recreational use of marijuana is now allowed. Not in Tennessee. If you are stopped and are suspected of driving impaired by marijuana, you could be arrested and charged.

Test for line-crossing traffic stops now a little clearer

A few months ago, we made note that the Tennessee Supreme Court would be hearing a couple of cases involving motorists charged with driving under the influence. At issue in these cases is whether a single instance of a vehicle getting near to or crossing either the centerline or the fog line on a road is sufficient grounds for police to pull the driver over.

If I pass a breath test I'm off the hook, right?

For most Tennessee drivers, there are few things as scary as being pulled over by the police and being asked to submit to a breath test. If you've been drinking, even a little bit, you have no idea what the result might be. Even if you haven't been drinking, if the device the officer uses hasn't been properly calibrated, it could give a positive reading. From there, things are likely only to get worse.
