Skip to comments.Drivers can earn $60 with roadside blood test, breath check

Government-hired survey teams will soon ask hundreds of Washington state motorists to answer questions and provide samples of breath, saliva and blood all to give safety and police agencies a clearer sense of how many people drive impaired.
The roadside surveys are voluntary, and participants will be paid up to $60, under the federally funded project this summer. National officials are collaborating with the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, which is hurrying to gather data before retail marijuana gains a foothold. That way, officials have a baseline from which to measure any safety effects of legalization, said commission spokeswoman Jonna VanDyk.
The roadside surveys began Friday and will continue over the weekend in Spokane and Yakima counties, followed by Kitsap and Whatcom counties later this month, and probably King and Snohomish counties, she said.
The study contractors plan to survey 150 drivers in five locations per county, for a total 4,500 participants.

Declining to participate will be construed as probable cause.
I would have thought the going rate for slaves these days was a lot higher than 60 bucks.

“We’re here to help...”
Bwa ha ha ha ha...
How much will they pay me to tell them to go eff themselves?
Just what they need.... Stoned drivers.
Sure appears to be a worthless survey if the people “volunteer”. Only sober people will “volunteer” both now and after they legally sell dope there. How many dopers and drunks will say yes? The result will show no change in driving impaired? DUH! Great way for the dope pusher politicians to justify doping up more of the population.
How about I give them a stool sample.....
[Sound of a nightstick beatdown in progress]
How bout I give them my cats stool sample...
Has this Country REALLY BECOME THIS IGNORANT??????
So a Nigerian Prince wants my saliva...and I will get a handsome reward?
is there a “texting” test? I’d say that falls under driving impairment.
We are 17 trillion in the hole and this sort of political waste is still going on. Check to see who is making the profit here. You get three guesses and the first two don't count.
Once they have your DNA they own you.
Isn't it more like "BA-RAAAAAAAACK!" ???
This is a self-selected sample. No one will "volunteer" for a blood and breathalyzer test if they're driving under the influence. The study will find that 0% of Washington State drivers are under the influnce of a controlled substance. What's the real point of this, I wonder??
Sounds like a bribe to relinquish Liberty.
To get around this is $60 putting a smiley face on it?
I would bet they already have most people’s DNA. Ever Lick an envelope?
They’ll use the sample to SEQUENCE YOUR DNA.
Without telling you.
The only way they get my DNA is when they mop up my blood from the walls and floor.
The last time they had one of these big brother roadblocks, the powers that be were claiming the purpose was to determine prescription drug use amongst drivers, and whether their prescription drug use affected their driving abilities. At least, this is what they claimed.
They are building a massive DNA database of Americans.
“They are building a massive DNA database of Americans.”
Creepy; I wouldn’t want the making clones with it, either.
The Won is not a fart. Farts are useful.
Pretty much a DNA database being constructed. Eventually through obamacare when you go to the dr or hospital they will have your DNA on file.
These tyrannical scum would make the NKVD and Stasi blush with their brash tactics.
