If I haven't answered your question, you should clarify what you're asking.

When a driver causes an accident by wreckless behavior such as speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, should the police check for alcohol/drug impairment?
Not routinely and not by obligation.
But I'm sure that they would check if they suspected impairment.

To: Platinum Contributor, was not implying anything, only asking a question.

I was asking if legally the police have to check for impairment.
Well...no, that's not what you asked. You asked whether the police "should" check under the circumstances you described. That basically calls for subjective opinions. In any event, I agree with the others that no state imposes a legal obligation on the police to do this.
