PROPOSED DRIVING LAW CHANGES – will give police sweeping powers, warn legal experts.
PROPOSED DRIVING LAW CHANGES – If passed police will be able to pull you over for no particular reason and demand you provide a breath or saliva sample without cause. Also you will have to stay sober for 2 hours after driving. If you become impaired or over 80 within 2 hours of driving police can arrest you and charge you with impaired/over 80 driving.
