The city of Carthage is looking for a way to recover the money it costs to test drunk drivers, according to an article in today's edition of H. J. Johnson's newsletter, "The Mornin' Mail."
Police Chief Dennis Veach recommended to the City Council's Public Safety Committee this week that the council pass an ordinance, similar to ordinances already in place in Joplin and Webb City that passes on the cost of breathalyzer tests to the offender if the person is found guilty and is convicted.
This would also cover the cost of blood tests if another drug is suspected or if the suspect refuses a breathalyzer test, according to the article.
