Police conducted a check stop of a vehicle leaving an area where alcohol consumption was suspected.  The driver immediately told the officer that he was the designated driver as he was less drunk than the passenger.  The driver, required to provide samples of his breath, failed the roadside screen device and has now lost the use of the vehicle for 30 days and is prohibited from driving for 90 days.
