Interesting article regarding increased DUI marijuana arrests in Oregon.  Cities throughout Oregon are ramping up their DUI marijuana enforcement programs, including Eugene and Springfield.  http://portlandtribune.com/pt/9-news/268819-141312-oregon-grapples-with-pot-driving

DMV just announced it will be requiring a camera to be installed with all Ignition Interlock Devices (IIDs) starting June 1, 2015. An IID locks out your ignition if you blow into it with alcohol on your breath. A person must blow into the device to start the car and again periodically while driving. IID installation is a requirement for all DUI diversions and convictions, regardless of whether alcohol related or not. This will certainly increase cost of the devices, which are currently about $70 per month, and may create some "big brother" type privacy concerns. What do people think about a camera being part of the IID requirement?

EPD, SPD and OSP are planning the first in a series of "no refusal weekends" this 4th of July. If anyone suspected of drunk driving refuses to provide a breath test there will be a judge on hand to quickly issue a search warrant to draw blood. Traditionally, judges are available at all hours to issue telephonic blood draw warrants in certain DUI cases. This is the first time that a blood draw warrant will be sought for all breath test refusals. To obtain a blood draw warrant the officer must complete an affidavit of probable cause that a DUI has occurred and that blood evidence would aid the investigation. What do people think of the "no refusal weekend"?

Sometimes cops get DUIs also. Springfield Police Department detective Marco Espinoza has been charged with DUII and interfering with a police officer.

The DUI case in which a co-owner of Rye struck and killed a pedestrian in Springfield last year is in the hands of the jury today. It will be interesting to see whether the defense can overcome blood draw evidence showing a 0.16% BAC.

Appropriate use of Tasers is an issue that EPD has been struggling with for many years. The US Supreme Court today ordered the New Orleans Court of Appeals to take a new look at a Taser death case. The resulting decision could result in nationwide guidelines on the use of Tasers. Taser International says their stun guns are a safe, non-lethal alternative to firearms. According to Amnesty International stun guns have caused or contributed to more than 60 deaths in the US since 2001.
