Why Are Police Collecting Bloød and Saliva From Americans All Over the Country? | breakingbrown.com

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, local law enforcement officials there are questioning the legality of “federal roadside impaired driving checkpoints at which motorists were asked to voluntarily submit blood and saliva samples in exchange for cash.”

In St. Louis, local officers say they were tricked into participating in a federal drunk driving study, according to St. Charles County Sheriff Tom Neer.

Here’s an overview of the study according to the Dispatch:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it conducted the tests as part of a nationwide survey designed to reduce drunken and drugged driving. The tests were conducted over the weekend in St. Charles County and in September in south St. Louis County.

Although the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, the federal subcontractor responsible for both the St. Louis and Alabama fluid collections, insists that the blood & saliva donations are voluntary, there have been reports of coercion from drivers.
