Is a cop allowed to breathalyze you without any suspicion of you being drunk? Also, with minors, if the number has any reading above zero can they just arrest you for underage drinking? Or does it have to reach a certain number?
#2
On the first one: I don't think so, but they do anyway.
On the second one: I think they can bust you for underage drinking.

I'm not really sure though.

Yes they can, drink driving is so bad here they do random spot checks a lot in the evenings.
Not sure about the underage drinking, but if there's alcohol off your breath and your underage and driving, I'm certain it'll be troublesome.

if you're not drunk, then you dont have anything to worry about

if you're underage drinking then say you had a fair bit at home before you went out

Meh...

I got caught underage drinking in public a while back, all they did was make me pour my booze down the drain.


Who cares? lol.

Also, 1 it would make sense if they could...

2 Same.

I dunno about where you are, but in England they can breathalyze any driver for no reason. Like Cyberbob says, we get random spot checks all the time.

in ohio, you have a choice to take it. But if you don't you automatically get your liscense suspended for a year

Hell, my school was doing breathalyzer tests here, and the things were so unreliable that gum was giving them false positives. Which also makes me wonder, if you eat say, one or two of those rum chocolates (which can get you declared legally drunk if you eat like 6 boxes of them) and your blood alcohol level is above .01%, will they arrest you?

drunk driving is a pretty serious offense ...

in IL if you do not submit to the breathalyzer and you get a DUI anyway (there's a number of tests they can do to determine it) then your penalties are increased twice as much i believe.

as for minors, in IL there is a zero tolerance policy. i kind of like florida cause it's .02 for minors there. i don't know what i'm supposed to say when i get pulled over after mass blowing .01. <_<

as for false positives, my friend chews copenhagen black bourbon sometimes. i wonder if that would get him arrested.

In the UK you can refuse a breathalyser test as long as you agree to have a blood test to determine alcohol levels.

as far as I understand it legally no a cop cannot use a breathalyzer without first issuing a field sobriety test, as for a number i know for driving any amount counts as underage drunk driving, i don't know about just underage drinking

I kinda assumed he meant just being breathalised for like walking around the street appearing quite drunk.

Does that even happen?

I don't I'd mind too much, sometimes I'm curious as to how drunk I am walking around town at night!

i passed a breathalizer after a Rage show (had 1.5 cans of beer in the parking lot), and the two cops who pulled me over STILL towed my car. go figure....

You shouldn't be driving with alcohol in your system anyway, so there's nothing to worry about.
