    More drivers are under the influence of their cell as well. Texting and driving is the most dangerous things a driver can do.

    Easy solution. If your pain is so bad that you need to be hopped up on pain meds three to four times a day and you renew your script right on the renewal date every month, take away their driver’s license. It’s really as simple as that because you can have medical professionals counsel until they are blue in the face. During that time the only thing the person is thinking is, “when can I get out of here so I can pop a pill?” I’ve seen this first hand by multiple people. At least by taking away their license, if they get pulled over for anything at all, they go to jail. I’ve taken pain pills. I didn’t need to take them every day because I could first of all bear the pain because I knew I was going to drive. If I couldn’t, I’d take it and stay home or have someone else drive. If you get 30 pain pills in a month, you’re probably fine. If you are getting 90-120 and renewing the same day you can get them, then you shouldn’t have a driver’s license. I think we’ve determined a license is a privileage, not a right.

    Labeling people who are prescribed medication by their physician as “Impaired!” sounds like a lucrative business model. Here in Colorado, judges are incentivized to keep out drivers’ exculpatory evidence, such as the fact that some drivers who are prescribed medication haven’t actually consumed the medication, or that the officers’ testimony of “I was sure he/she was impaired by something” is incentivized as well.

    The pond is fished out. Virtually no one drives drunk anymore, and since getting convictions for DUI is so lucrative, it makes sense to explore new ways to categorize safe sober motorists as “Impaired!”
