Over the past decade, the increasing number of DUI and Border checkpoints have become an alarming trend for those of us who value our personal freedoms. While some states like Alaska and Iowa (among others) don’t allow sobriety checkpoints, in other states like Florida they’ve become a major impediment for drivers. In fact, according to Boca Raton lawyer Warren Redlich, even if you pass a breathalyzer test in Florida, you can still be given a DUI if the police officer claims he smells alcohol, or says that your speech is slurred.
That’s why he’s created a DUI flyer that drivers can show the police, without saying a word, and without rolling down their window. It looks like this:
And from there, you can also press your driver’s license and registration on the window for the officer to see, effectively eliminating any chance for the cops to “smell alcohol” or “detect slurred speech.” So far, this method has been successfully tested in one of Florida’s notorious checkpoints.
Keep in mind though, this is just for Florida residents. Currently, Warren Redlich is in the process of making a separate flyer for every state. You can check out his website fairdui.org, where so far he’s made a flyer and a set of instructions for New York, California, New Jersey, Ohio, Arkansas, Utah, Texas, Georgia, and South Carolina.
So stay safe out there. Flex your rights, and don’t let the police state fleece you.
