[quote]I personally find the entire DUI process to be entirely criminal. Unless the evidence is collected after the commission of an actual crime against person or property, then simply being "drunk" based the number you blow into a breathalyzer isn't enough to put someone in the slammer IMO.

You have to go in one every year or so to have your vehicle inspected for road worthiness...blinkers, horn, brakes, lights, your windshield isn't cracked. And in some places gas emissions.
Problem is most places you get them are shady and will pass any vehicle that can be driven in.
