Reducing distracted driving among teens

Distracted driving is a frequent cause of accidents in Connecticut and across the country. Teen drivers seem to be especially prone to distraction from cell phones and other electronic devices. Public awareness materials and driver's education courses may help teens understand the risks of distracted driving. Parents may also be able to help by demonstrating safe driving practices, including not using a cell phone while behind the wheel. Connecticut has certain restrictions designed to reduce the frequency of distracted driving among teens.

Are breath tests a reliable source of evidence?

If you have ever been pulled over by a Connecticut law enforcement officer on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, you may have been asked to take a breath test. Breath test devices are often used by law enforcement officers to measure a driver’s blood alcohol content level and ensure they are not over the legal limit of 0.08. Yet, in some cases, the readings from these breath test devices may not be accurate and could lead to a wrongful DUI arrest and charges. 

What is the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine?
