Dodging the 5th - How States Get Self Incrimination for DUIs

The notion that driving is a privilege subject to the whims of the State and not a protected right has taken a firm hold.  By threatening to revoke a 'privilege' instead of a 'right', such as your liberty by throwing you in jail or your property by assessing a fine, failure to comply is not technically a crime and thus, being compelled to provide blood, urine or breath samples does not violate your 'right' to not incriminate yourself.
