Driver fleeing from Letcher County checkpoint causes crash

Given the many methods by which people who have been drinking in Covington can now safely be transported home, many might think that the chances of them encountering a drunk driver on the road would be almost non-existent. Still, the risk may be out there, and it is one that no amount of defensive driving or vehicle safety features can mitigate. Drunk drivers may set out for their destinations without any intent to harm others, yet the impairments caused by the alcohol they have consumed often make completing their journeys unscathed nearly impossible. 

What is an implied consent law?

You may hear stories of people being detained for drunk driving after registering a blood-alcohol measurement in excess of the legal limit and wonder why anyone in Covington who might potentially be driving drunk would consent to such testing. This likely comes from your assumption that law enforcement officers cannot force you to do anything that you do not want to do. What you likely do not know is that you (and every other driver in Kentucky) has already agreed to such testing.
