ANY alcohol impairs driving - and if you don't think it does, I suggest you look at the stats for fatalities caused by drunks in their cars.
In 2005, 16,885 people died in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes, accounting for 39% of all traffic-related deaths in the United States
The National Traffic
Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that
there are 100,000 police-reported crashes resulting in 1,550 deaths and 71,000 injuries
annually as the result of drowsy driving.
Second only to riding unbelted, drunk driving is the deadliest risk factor for both drivers and passengers. Although the number of annual alcohol-related highway deaths has declined slightly over the last decade, 29 percent of all the crash fatalities in 2005 involved a driver with a measurable blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Most of the drunk drivers killed had a BAC higher than twice the legal limit. Drivers age 21-24 have the highest percentage of alcohol-related deaths.

Now show me some proof of everything that you are alleging "will happen" including proof of concentration camps,proof of spycams looking in bedroom windows or any of the other nonsense you've been spouting as "truth"
Hang it on your bedroom ceiling or in the kitchen, the Smoke Detector Wireless Hidden Spy Camera System blends in anywhere you would normally place a smoke detector. It won’t detect smoke, but it will detect what’s going on in your house when you’re not there. So be sure you don’t use it to take the place of your already existing smoke detector, because it only functions as a camera. Hidden inside is a transmitter that operates on an FCC-approved 2.4 GHz frequency for great range (up to 700 ft.)
There is a solution other than what the elite consider excess population. Why not prevent the poor - for the sake of argument, let us venture a conservative 99% of the world's population - from having children altogether, or if that isn't possible, at least vastly slow their birth rates?
"Eugenics" is a term coined in the latter part of the 19th century by Englishmen Francis Galton to describe the "science" of bettering human stock and the elimination of unwanted characteristics... and individuals. Galton proposed societal intervention for the furtherance of "racial quality," maintaining that "Jews are specialized for a parasitical existence upon other nations" and that "except by sterilization I cannot yet see any way of checking the produce of the unfit who are allowed their liberty and are below the reach of moral control."
Could do a little research yourself, and actually contribute to the thread.

It's really quite simple - if people obeyed the laws of the land, the police wouldn't need to do this.
Can't do the time, don't do the crime.
I have zero sympathy for motorists who behave irresponsibly or illegally.
and creating "what if" situations to justify these actions is naive
What happens in the event of a mistaken id or bad info in some database?
Personally, I find the technology to be an alarming sign in the rise of the American police-state

And of course, what happens when the match is incorrect? Some innocent person gets ripped out of their car and thrown on the pavement with a gun in their temple.
Then of course, there is the problem of probable cause. What if that innocent person just happened to have a bag of bud in his pocket?
And lastly, there is the direct abuse of power. We've all heard the "matched the description" exuse a million times already.

Only this morning one of my workmates turned up and said he was stopped by police as he was getting of of his car after parking at work. They asked to see his licence as the registered owner of car he was driving (his brothers) had a suspended licence.
We were trying to figure out how they knew and why they pulled him to start with.
