If you work in any kind of patrol capacity, you encounter intoxicated people on a regular basis. When they are driving, they pose a significant danger to the public. It is important that you know how to properly investigate any suspected impaired driving. These articles are a great refresher and can help clarify points of instruction. They are not intended to replace formal classroom training given by NHTSA certified instructors. Your state’s laws and department procedures always trump anything included in these training articles.
