Let him go, thats what they did to a firemen that killed two people while Drunk out of his mind.
Accidents happen, he will not let it happen again. He was a good guy and be given another chance.

The State Attorney's Office has filed misdemeanor DUI charges against a veteran Tamarac and Plantation firefighter. If he is convicted, David Radzivill, 44, faces, at a minimum, a six-month loss of his driver's license, a $250 fine, six months probation and 50 hours of community service. His blood alcohol level was .15, almost double the legal limit, according to prosecutors.

Seems like EVERYONE here knows it's illegal. Maybe we should pass that on to those that can write tickets.
A driver can now be pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt; that takes some pretty fair eyesight on behalf of the officers. Why can't they see people in the back of a pickup?
Wouldn't that put about 95% of lawn services and roofing companies out of business.

This man will be charged with "Failure to secure a load".
The story doesn't say he was impaired or he was aware the woman was in the truck bed or aware she had fallen out. If he wasn't impared or aware then that's about all he will be charged with.
So guys remember to secure your load!!
how do you know she had a load on ?

no blood tests yet !

The minimum punishment you stated is hardly what I would call being let go.
Your antagonism for law enforcement leads me to believe that there may have been extenuating circumstances that you 'neglected' to include.

Do you know the difference between a public road and a private road?
Granted it is written in legalese, but take a moment to decipher it. I may have an advantage in that I read certain laws almost daily in my profession and I've learned how to eliminate the excess verbage in order to get to the gist of it. I did have to read it twice before comprehending, but lawyers write the laws in such a way that we have to pay them to interpret for us. Aye, there's the rub!

Cops covering up for a fireman that was drunk out of his mind killing two citizens.
I do call this being let go with no punishment when you consider he killed two people. Dead gone for ever. If he had killed a cop how would you feel about it then?
On Feb. 17, Radzivill's SUV struck and killed brothers Eledoro Grijalva-Lima, 33, and Cesar A. Grijalva-Lima, 36, who were walking on State Road 7 in Fort Lauderdale, authorities said.
