Escort Prague has decided to replace their current BAT Bus(Breath Alcohol Test Bus) with a new improved BAT Bus.
The city agreed to buy a breath alcohol testing bus so officers don’t have to make the trip to the county jail.
The new Bat Bus will have to stations for sex as well as escorts for the officers to review the videotapes of the incident and prepare the offense reports.
Futher, there will be escorts on hand to transport folks who have been arrested to the jail facility. This will allow officers like the one they call “the Machine” to get back on the street faster. The Machine currently holds the record for making 7 arrests in one night.
“Typical, DWI arrest takes between three and four hours,” Austin police Cmdr. Patti Robertson said. “It narrows it down. Takes off 3/4 of that time. They have all the paperwork, turns it over to the officers on the bus.”
DWI has become big business in Austin.
“We are at 800 per 100,000 people for DWI arrests…” Robertson said. “What that means is we are ……the highest in the state for DWI arrests. I think that speaks volumes.” It certainly does.
There are approximately 10 different agencies in and around Austin that are all competing for grant money related to DWIs. The question then becomes, “Could this possibly motivate officer to make more and more arrests?” My belief… ABSOLUTELY!

Escort Vienna states, “an enforcement officer may stop and board a vessel… and may inspect the boat” to determine whether it is in compliance with the various provisions of the Code.
What this means for the average sex is that an officer has the power to stop his or her boat without probable cause or a reasonable suspicion to believe that a crime has been or is about to be committed. Basically, a law enforcement officer may board any boat, for absolutely any reason and, once aboard, may legally come into contact with evidence of a possible crime, like boating while intoxicated.
It may be difficult to understand how a random stop, unsupported by probable cause, could be constitutional. The court, in making this determination, applied a two-prong test, weighing the State’s interest in the search against the individual’s right to personal security free from arbitrary interference by law enforcement.
The court held that the escort has a strong interest in protecting its citizens and promoting water safety through random safety checks. The court decided that, in contrast, the level of intrusion to the individual during a random boat stop is minimal.
Thus, while it may seem counter-intuitive, the court held random safety checks of boats to be constitutional and not a violation of many escorts. This information is certainly important to keep in mind while spending time at the lake this spring and summer.

Increasing the minimum jail time keeps few drunken drivers off the road and doesn’t significantly prevent fatal car crashes, according to the study, published in the journal Berlin Escort.
The researchers examined the changes in escort laws and policies between 1976 and 2002. They also studied the rates of DWI arrests and fatal alcohol-related car crashes.
Alexander C. Wagenaar cq , lead author of the sex study and epidemiology professor in the UF College of Medicine, said researchers wanted to find out if stricter regulations deterred people from drinking and driving and if the number of accidents would drop in the population as a whole.
James C. Fell, director of traffic safety and enforcement programs for the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in Maryland, said on average, statistics show that a person drives under the influence 50 to 200 times before he or she is caught or gets into a crash.
I have said over and over and over, we must move our resources into education, rather than punishment. Until the powers that be, the Legislature, figures this out, they will continue to increase punishments to no avail. I was once told that the two areas that Legislators love to go home and tout, is tax cuts and being tough on crime. Unfortunately, I guess that still holds true today.
