"...drivers in Florida will be mandated to allow police to jab a needle in their arm and extract blood at DUI checkpoints should they refuse to submit to breath tests." [Emphasis added]

I refuse to sit, lie down, roll over or play dead for any man, without my voluntary express consent!

DRIVER. One employed...
Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed, 1951

The activity licensed by state DMVs and in connection with which individuals must submit personal information to the DMV - the operation of motor vehicles - is itself integrally related to interstate commerce”.
Seth Waxman, Solicitor General
U.S. Department of Justice
Reno v. Condon, No. 98-1464, decided January 12, 2000
Supreme Court of the United States

Since I am not "employed[1]" by anyone to "conduct or operate" my unregistered, private automobile, nor am I "licensed by [your or any other] state DMVs", or involved in "interstate commerce[2]", I am not a "DRIVER". I am a free and sovereign man. And, as a free and sovereign man I do not consent to breathe into anything, I do not consent to be stabbed by you with anything, and I do not consent to be arrested by you, or anyone else. Happy New Year and have a nice night.
