If someone refuses the Breath Test, how can they be charged with driving with a BAC of .08 or higher?? I am NOT supporting Drunk Driving. I want Drunks locked up.
But we are a Society of Laws. This failure to keep right charge stinks. It is just an excuse for law enforcement to pull you over, especially if you are on the road after midnight. We need probable cause to be stopped, not a watch. Thank You, I feel better.

On the first point, Fred, I have the same question. I don't know the answer.

Not to discuss any particular case, but we've been over this ground before -- you may have even been the one who left the same comment previously ... did you read the thread?

If somebody has been charged with "failure to keep right," you have no idea from that statement what the officer observed. That's just what the person got charged with. That doesn't mean the driver crossed a line once and got stopped. Typically -- and based on my law enforcement training -- an officer isn't going to want to take the time for a traffic stop for a single weave.

Refusing a breath test is automatic suspension of your license, and at least a $300
charge from DMV.

Howard, why won't you follow up on the st. patricks day weekend roadblock? I am very curious as to the success, the failure, the possible fabrication of this story by the police.
I do realize you have the right to not post and or print anything you do not wish to, however if that is the case, will you please let me know?

David,
Howard, as a private citizen, has the same access to police information that we all do. Call the Sheriffs office and get back to us.

Samantha A. Bowles, 24, of East Main Street, Le Roy, was arrested on a bench warrant for alleged failure to pay a fine from a previous conviction on disorderly conduct. Bowles was jailed on $200 bail.

I have a question. Just how is this person supposed to pay her fine, from jail? She cant. The burden now falls on her family and loved ones to come and pay the fine for her. She probably lost her job sitting in jail, resulting in one more person to draw on the public's assistance when she is released. I seem to remember learning in school that it is against the law to imprison a debtor. Because its impossible to earn money to pay your debts while you are locked up. Has this been changed? Just for the record and to point out how asinine our legal system is here in NY, the average cost to house and feed an inmate in NY is $96 a day. So after just 3 days in jail, the state, and Genesee county nets a loss of $96 a day. This cost is placed squarely on our shoulders, the taxpayers. So lets say that she sits in jail for 10 days. Thats a net cost to the taxpayers of $960...minus the $200 or so fine that we HOPE she will eventually pay, for a net LOSS of $760. Wow NY you really taught her a lesson.

There were four DWI arrests that weekend. I believe they've all been reported. End of story.

Alvin, I asked an honest question. If you do something, like breaking a store window or stealing from Target, and decide not to pay the fine imposed by a local court, what is the solution. Jail was not the first choice, and that was why a fine was given. But if you decide not to pay, then what?

Fair enough. I shouldn't have assumed your comment was anything but an honest question.
