    Maybe you can apply more critical thinking skills towards the issue. Setting a standard for acceptable impairment while driving a heavy machine and punishing people as a deterrent towards reckless behavior for violating said limit is unacceptable and worth the cost of life and suffering it would incur on hundreds of thousands to satisfy whatever your notions of libertarianism are.

    mk...now were bng srsbzns mk?

    If someone is not harmed there is no need to punish. End of story. I thought about it plenty.

    Why don't you think of a better way to prevent deaths due to drunken driving? Also putting your idea into implementation spells death for countless innocent people. Just so you know.

    So DWI laws are bad for tavern and bar owners? Actually, they are not. If bar owners behave responsibly and stop serving drinks to drunks, they don't have a problem. To everybody else - Drink responsibly or go to jail. You are NOT allowed to put other peoples' lives at risk by going out on the road drunk. If you do, then you have made a bad choice, and I hope you get busted before you ruin the lives of others. If it was just your own life, I wouldn't give a damn, but it's not, and that's why we have laws against driving drunk.

    As someone who is serving probation for a DWI, I will be the very first to say that this lawmaker should be unelected as soon as possible. Not only is he irresponsible, but he is a menace. I support DWI laws, and if you value your own lives, you will support them too.
    You forgot to mention the most important thing about this guy... he is a BAR OWNER! talk about conflict of interest lol.

    Sounds like a real classy fella. I'll enjoy watching his argument get torn apart.

    Drunk driving laws are in place to save lives. Drunk driving kills, and when a cop pulls over a drunk driver, and takes them off the road, they are potentially saving not only their lives, but the lives of innocent others. I support DWI/DUI laws 100%.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I support this adage being used, in some cases, legally. DWI's are one of this scenarios.

    There is no way to prevent it. Deterring behavior doesn't work.

    It's not black or white. Deterring behavior may not prevent it, but it can reduce it.

    the argument is not unlike gun owners rights..
    until something bad happens, why does everyone need to be punished?

    after all, "it spells death for countless innocent people" . right?

    oh and btw. i am a gunowner and gun sportsman, so dont roll me into the 'anti-gun' crowd. im just stating a parallel to the arguement.

    i wonder what the numbers are between drunk driving deaths and shootings are? seriously.. im just asking for the argument's sake.
