And neither is the blood alchol level a reliable measure of impairment, just like the states have established BAC limits they could do the same type of blood "THC" limits for marijuana. Illinois already has such a limit established Quote 1. If there was a tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of 5 nanograms or more in whole blood or 10 nanograms or more in an other bodily substance as defined in this Section, it shall be presumed that the person was under the influence of cannabis. 2. If there was at that time a tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of less than 5 nanograms in whole blood or less than 10 nanograms in an other bodily substance, such facts shall not give rise to any presumption that the person was or was not under the influence of cannabis, but such fact may be considered with other competent evidence in determining whether the person was under the influence of cannabis. Quote I've only had to do sobriety tests twice in my life, but neither time were multiple officers present, I don't think the officer had a body camera either time, and one of them the officer even had me move to the side of his cruiser so I wasn't on the dash cam. No matter what "procedures" are in place officers will find ways to not follow them. The second officer and camera would generally be called once the initial observation/test shows the driver is likely intoxicated and they want more evidence that will hold up in court, if the officer doesn't see any signs of obvious impairment they have no reason to further document the non-arrest. Quote No matter what "procedures" are in place officers will find ways to not follow them. That is why you have your day in court, if your BAC comes back well below the legal limit and the officer has no body-cam video of you showing impairment and no 2nd witness to testify to your impairment, chances are there will be no conviction.
