CDC - Impaired Driving Facts - Motor Vehicle Safety - Injury CenterIn 2010, 10,228 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.1
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
It's an unpopular view but I think that shaming is a viable alternative to prisons, the one size fits all solution to everything (unless you're a banker). Stocks and caning would probably get a lot of first time offenders back on track instead of sending them to crime school.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
It's easy for people to rationalize against those "special plates" when they don't have to tell their children why mommy or daddy is never coming home.
"Ohh that poor man with the licenses plate,his rights are more important than those he may,or already have, killed".
"His feelings are more important than the loved ones of the people he killed".
I have no problem with violent criminals being denied the right to own a gun. I have no problem with convicted pedophiles not being allowed to live near schools. And I have no problem with people who endanger the lives of others by driving drunk being publicly identified as the lethal hazard they are.
