The latest gadget to break into the DUI / DRUNK DRIVING industry is a machine that measures eye movement using infrared light. In California, the California Highway Patrol and City of Orange are interested in the machine. The cost appears to be $3,500 for a hand held machine, $35,000 for a stationary one eye machine and $55,000 for a stationary two eye machine. With an estimated 500,000 police cruisers in the US and hundreds if not thousands of police agencies as potential markets, hundreds of millions of dollars are believed to be involved. The fact that the machines are even being looked at confirms that traditional methods of prosecutions such as breath and blood testing are not sufficient. In addition, I doubt very seriously that judges and/or juries will automatically accept the scientific premises in which the machines are based.

The Salinas, California, Police Department is setting up an unusual Thanksgiving checkpoint. They will be giving away between 150 to 300 turkeys to drivers who pass through their DUI / DRUNK DRIVING checkpoint as long as they don't get arrested for DUI / DRUNK DRIVING. For those drivers who choose to avoid the checkpoint, perhaps they can receive a chicken!
