You're talking to someone with 29 years in corp sales- tell me about it. The most successful salespeople I know, on the whole, are single alcoholic males.

But yes, I'd agree 100%. The stereotype of drunks living under a bridge isn't very accurate.

I know 3 CIO's, 4 CEO's, 2 lawyers that didn't learn. All that money and still drive DUI. They rather risk it then leaving their precious car some where.

The COTY was a left over when the local PD did their "don't drink and drive" displays at the high school. It was one of the drunk wrecked cars

You should see what the FAA does when you get a DUI. Getting your driver's license back is child's play compared to getting your pilot's license back.

My son-in-law went through this. Two years of random **** testing. They call you up and you have to give a urine sample within a certain time frame. There better be no alcohol at all. Psychiatric interviews, dexterity and cognizance testing, etc., and you pay for it all. He actually did quit drinking 100% and I don't see how he would have gotten through it without doing exactly that.

Seems like only the second part of this would be necessary....
By "verifying all vehicles owned" do you mean it is mandatory that you install it on all vehicles, therefore ensuring they get an extra 120$ per month per extra car?
Nevermind, IL, I know the answer.

Nope. they verify what vehicles you own and which one you have the device installed in. You can have it put into multiple cars if you wish, but that's still at your expense.

I don't see why they need to verify all vehicles owned. Get caught driving somebody else's car without one and you're going back to jail. And don't let your friends drive your car You're still on the hook for that even if they do get a picture of somebody else activating the blow machine.

I don't know about other states, but in California your motorcycle stays parked until the device is no longer required, because there is no such device for a bike.

That's how it is in FL, too.
