Question of the Day
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is promoting a “No Refusal” policy used by a handful of states. It allows police to obtain search warrants from judges to take blood samples from suspected drunken drivers who refuse to take Breathalyzer tests.
About one-fourth of drunken-driving suspects refuse to take breath tests.
States using the approach to drunken driving say they’re seeing more guilty pleas, fewer trials and more convictions.
Nearly 11,000 people were killed in alcohol-impaired crashes in 2009.
Toyota recalls Siennas for brake-light glitch
Toyota Motor Corp. said Monday that it will recall nearly 100,000 Sienna minivans from the 2011 model year to replace a switch bracket on the brake lamp that could cause the brake lights to stay on.
The Japanese automaker, which has grappled with several safety recalls during the past year, said a driver’s foot could hit the switch bracket and deform it while applying the parking brake pedal. Toyota said it did not know of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
The switch bracket is welded onto the left side of the brake pedal assembly. The brake lamp provides a signal to indicate that the brake pedal has been depressed and illuminates the brake lights.
Senate race goes to state’s high court
