Drugged driving laws having little effect on court dockets

On August 17, 2006, Ohio's DUI law underwent it's "umpteenth-billion" change. This time the change included "per se" limits for certain drugs that can be found in blood or urine. Some of the drugs are legal (with prescriptions) and some are not. But the fact remains that some of these drugs can remain in your system LONG after the substances quit effecting our brains and accordingly, our ability to operate motor vehicles.

Despite the change however, the number of cases that have been filed under this updated version of the Ohio DUI/ Ohio OVI law has remained extremely low. See the June 6, 2006 post for the substances and actual levels listed in the new law.
