Drivers can earn $60 with roadside blood test, breath check
The Seattle Times ^ | 6/8/2014 | Mike Lindblom

Posted on 06/09/2014 3:48:09 PM PDT by steve86

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.

Fed funded BS and voluntary, note that Washington State does not allow those DUI gestapo roadblocks that many states use.

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.

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.

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??

Hmmm. Washington is one of 11 states that bans suspicionless checkpoints.

To get around this is $60 putting a smiley face on it?

They’ll use the sample to SEQUENCE YOUR DNA.

Without telling you.

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.

Creepy; I wouldn’t want the making clones with it, either.

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.
