    This is true. Thank God it was only his passenger that died and not someone else on the street or someone in another car.

    Happens way too many times and there will proably be ( no, make that there will be ) a citizen killed as I write this being killed by a drunken driver.

    And of course the noble thing would be for the "reformed driver" to go on a tour of high schools and preach how it destroyed his life........... which goes through one ear and out the other.

    What they need to do is make the penalty for drunken driving so harsh that it would be like playing Russian Roulette getting behind the wheel intoxicated. For starters take their driver licenses away for 5 solid years and jail time. Make it leave a mark.

    From what I see here, current OVI laws are not enforced well.

    I read about drivers being picked up and having multiple OVI arrests.

    Couple this with the lack of prison space, and the increasing cost of incarceration, and our legal system is a failure.

    I do not drink, nor do I associate with people who do.

    You sound like a real hoot.

    I'm sure you're perfect in every way, and never make mistakes.

    Never said that junior.

    He did not make a mistake, as he willingly chose to drink excessively and drive drunk.
