Police Ask Random Drivers For Saliva, Breath, Blood Samples

Participation was voluntary for study, but Texas motorists were confused

The roadblock was part of a three-year study conducted by a private contractor on behalf the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that, using a random sampling, aims to determine how many motorists are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It was unclear from reports whether or not active-duty or off-duty police were conducting the tests, but they were involved in the road block that stopped drivers and diverted them to a parking lot where the tests were conducted.

"I gestured to the guy in front that I wanted to go straight, but he wouldn't let me, and forced me into a parking spot," motorist Kim Cope tells NBC in Dallas-Fort Worth. "I finally did the Breathalyzer test just because I thought that would be the easiest way to leave."

Friday's roadblock in Fort Worth was part of NHTSA's National Roadside Survey Of Alcohol and Drug Use By Drivers. The survey involved randomly stopping drivers at 300 locations across the country, according to the agency's website.

Drivers are supposed to be paid $10 to $50 for their participation, although Cope said she did not receive any payment.
