Ok, the dancing part is funny. But please tell me this is NOT common practice for the USA policeforce to determin wether or not a person has been drinking. (I mean the ridiculous touching the nose and walking a straight line thing)

Yes. But with circumstances. They also have a breathalizer test where you blow into a tube and it measures how much alcohol you've got in your system. It's pretty accurate too.

I kind of think that one shown here is more of a performance than anything else. All the silly dancing and such ... I don't think that would really be allowed. And the officer is a pretty woman in the video. ;-)

The nose touching and straight line thing is indeed part of the standard sobriety road test. Flunk that and you may move up to the breathalyzer test next.

Celebrate diversity, man.

They always want them to say the alphabet backwards. I can't do that sober. Most cops I know can't even say it forward. You're best off to refuse to do any of these tests.

Yeah,
That's Reno 911, it's a television show. It's supposed to be a take off on COPS, which is a reality show, but Reno 911 is pure comedy.

It's funny, though.

Mike, as Mac says, the nose and straight line test are part of it. What that does is to determine if your balance is impaired. You tilt your head back, close your eyes, and try to touch your nose. If you are drunk, usually you will fall down...or miss, significantly. The heel to toe straight like also tests balance. Again, if you're drunk, you can't do it, you'll fall over. They are very effective tests at determining if you are 'impaired' whether alcohol or drugs.

Russ,

I hope you know that is fake?

They have disposable pre-breathalizer testers they can use as well. But, they need probable cause to stop you in the first place. In Cali, you can't refuse to take the test, unless you want to automatically get your driving privilege suspended for a year. The DMV can also suspend your license just for being arrested for DUI now, no need for a conviction;)

The officer should have some ammo for court, that is why they do several different types of tests.

But, that was funny to watch Russ.

That doesn't sound like the land of the free where we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

Oh.

It is Califoreignia.

I remember when you guys used to be free.

Over here the cops don't need probable cause, they can pull anyone over at any time & breath test them. Randon breath testing.
Often a number of police cars will line up on a road and pull a line of cars over & breath test every driver. They don't use the plastic tubes & bags anymore, it's a small handheld machine (similar to a multimeter) that you must speak into (usually a count from one to ten.)

I've seen this before ... funny as heck, but what is the funniest part of the whole thing, is the cop asking "Are you a dancer?" - Man replies "No, I'm just drunk!" Off to jail! LOL!

Anyway ... cool to see that one again ... it solidifies the fact that drunks are very smart and inventive, until they slip up! He could have just said "YES, I am a dancer!" He may have been driving home that night! LOL!

Here in Oz the presumption of innocence holds true - like anyplace that has England as the progenitor of its legal system (thanks to Runnymede) - EXCEPT for the motor traffic act in each state, and all TAX legislation. In matters concerning these legislations you are presumed guilty on the accusation of the officer (police or tax). I.e. you must prove your innocence, they do not have to prove guilt.

Very similar laws here. I've been through at least two roadblocks. First they ask you a few questions and look you over carefully. If there are any suspicions, you would be "invited" to step out and produce your op's license. Then if you fumble a bit more, they might ask for the vehicle registration, while further sizing you up. The law requires that the op license be carried while driving and the vehicle registration must be produced within 24 hours.

If you fumble some more, the "invitation" to a small breathalyzer test is offered. If you refuse the offer, you get a free car ride to the station. Then it gets worse.

Glenn

PS: On both occasions, they sized me up, and said, "have a good evening sir". I don't ever drink and drive. Too dumb and potentially far too expensive.

Getting serious about drunk drivers has taken a long time, and hopefully the "good ol' boys" will catch up with reality. Serious drunk driving that results in another person's death, is sometimes called manslaughter or criminal negligence, not an infringement of the drunk's freedoms.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
