Why do I qualifiy for a BAIID machine?
I got a DUI in Oct. of '07 when I ran my truck into a telephone pole. My DUI was for cocaine. The police report stated I smelled like alcohol but they did not breathalyze me nor did they check for alcohol when they ran my blood. I had 5 beers that evening between 5-7PM and the wreck occurred at 2:30 AM. I'm confused as to why I even qualify for a BAIID machine. It doesn't seem like this punishment fits my crime. Thank you.

19 yr old blew .128 got zero tolerance and improper lane usage. Will this be considered a underage DUI.
My 19yr old put her car in a ditch and called 911. When the officer arrived he asked her if she had been drinking she said yes and submitted to a field sobriety test that she passed then was asked to take a breathalyzer. She blew .128. She was given a improper lane usage ticket and a non traffic complaint and notice to appear which wil be at our county courthouse. She also received a zero tolerance warning to motorist under 21 and a zero tolerance sworn report which we were told we would have to go to springfield to court. Will she pay fines in county and again at state and will she be charged with a DUI. This is her first offence.
