Driving hung-over can lead to OUI

The American Automobile Association (AAA) recently issued a timely reminder to drivers who drink. Most understand the dangers of getting behind the wheel after a night of drinking, but many will be surprised to note that alcohol may still be in their bloodstream the next day. This means that Massachusetts drivers can be at a higher risk for an accident or even get an OUI after they have supposedly slept it off.

Vermont's Supreme Court takes stand against biased stops

The Vermont Supreme Court recently ruled against police overreach. The case of Zullo v. Vermont revolved around a 2014 traffic stop where a state trooper pulled over a young black man driving to visit a friend after work. According to news reports, the officer claimed that he pulled the man over for an obstructed license tab. He then noticed a faint scent of marijuana (which was decriminalized in Vermont) and the presence of a Visine bottle.

Trauma can lead to cases of mistaken identity

The recent shooting death of 7-year-old Texas girl Jazmine Barnes is a stark reminder of how trauma can affect memory. In this case, the innocent girl happened to be riding in a car that was fired upon when a gunman pulled up next to it in a parking lot.
