by the National Safety Council to
this state included a suggestion
that Oregon conduct a study com

laws with those ot tne national
uniform code. The council said

an chemical tests for drunken
drivers "cripples enforcement" by
first insisting that a driver must
five his written consent to the
lest and then. If he refuses to con
lent, making that fact inadmis
sible evidence -in court.
;"A high priority need In this
state." said Hall, "is for a
revision in taw which would
strengthen authority of Police of-

whose violations have caused col
lisions, but which have not been
witnessed by police."
