No, its totally about civil rights, but has been wrapped up under the guise of morality/safety/etc. It reminds me of the copyright industry in Europe claiming peer to peer networks should be outlawed because they are a major source of child pornography. That way, its not a rights issue...but a "wont somebody please think of the children" issue.
I guess you fail to see how police cannot be judge, jury, and executioner regardless of what it is about. I suggesting going to a 3rd world country and seeing what its all about
And for the record, I never drink and drive...I even offer people rides and make sure they don't drive home when they are drunk at a bar. So you are barking up the wrong tree. However, I am opposed to the laws, which are fundamentally unconstitutional.
