Like a bunch of damn vampires

Travis County Commissioners voted yesterday to expand their blood drawing in accordance with state law by putting a phlebotomist on staff at Central Booking.
I know it’ll come as a big surprise, but I don’t have much of a problem with this. I do have a problem with the already too low blood alcohol limits in the state of Texas. The reality is that that the lower limit has done nothing to cut alcohol related accidents but has done a lot to increase alcohol related arrests that cost taxpayers millions per year.
I’m all for strong enforcement but can we please stop prosecuting people for DWI who are clearly not impaired?
