i have never had experience with this personally, but FYI, there was a court case a few years back.  an older person had run a stop sign or something and had caused a minor accident.  the defense was that his blood sugar had been low.  the judge ruled that this was NOT defensable.  in other words, it is our responsibility as diabetic drivers to make sure that this does not happen.  if low BS sneeks up on you, test before you drive.  i have a medical id braclet, and i also have an id necklack hanging from my rear view mirror, in case of an accident. 
i guess what i'm saying is, don't make the police be the enforcers--what do they know!!--be responsible yourself.  but it is also a shame that cops arent' more educated about the symptoms of low BS and that instead of knowing they accuse US.

I have heard of this, especially if you're hypoglycemic because the ketones on your breath smell like alcohol. We should all be wearing Medical Id bracelets for safety reasons and I haven't gotten mine yet... Must be more denial... Still having problems with that darn denial...
