DUI BAGGIES GET BAGGED BY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT
We know baggies are frequently associated with marijuana in addition to their usual legal uses, in this case they are being used for DUI checkpoints. Here's another idea that is circulating. Reported in an article on the American Bar Association Journal website by Martha Neil, Attorney Warren Redlich suggests that motorists faced with DUI checkpoints don't open their windows. They should "put their license, registration, proof of insurance and a flyer in a plastic baggie attached to the exterior of their vehicle and then roll up the driver's window as they approach the checkpoint, according to Tampa's Fox 13 News and PINAC News.
"One example of the flyer states in large-font capital letters 'I remain silent,' 'no searches' and 'I want my lawyer.' It cites statutory law to support the driver's claimed right not to roll down the window, explaining that any ticket can be placed under the windshield wiper and advising that the driver will obey 'clearly stated lawful orders.'
