Let me get this straight.
Some people are so slightly intoxicated that only a highly trained police officer with months of specialized training can detect that they are intoxicated???
Put another way that means those people are so minimally intoxicated that it would be impossible for a normal untrained person to detect that they are "allegedly" drunk?
If that it true it sounds like those people are perfectly safe to let drive a car and the Mesa police should not be shaking them down for DUI.
If you ask me this is a shameless attempt by the Mesa police to raise revenue by falsely arresting people for DUI, people that are so stone cold sober that their state of drunkenness can only be detected by a highly trained police officer.
I suspect this is ALL about the minimum $2,000 fine a DUI conviction will bring to the city of Mesa and doesn't have anything to do with removing unsafe drivers from the street.
