MADD LIES

Here we go again. Let's sum up how MADD and AAIM mothers will statistically manipulate this accident to make a problem bigger than it appears.

1 driver - Ford BAC 3x legal limit
3 passengers Ford no BAC taken

1 driver - Camry, no alcohol
2 passengers Camry
3 deaths in Camry.

MADD and AAIM will count 4 drunk drivers in this accident even though one was 3x the legal limit and 2 were not even behind the wheel.

MADD and AAIM use lies to get bad legislation passed. Drivers over .15 do 99% of the killing. MADD and AAIM are pushing for prohibition, one BAD LAW AT A TIME.

About 12:30 a.m., Cole "was crossing the centerline going eastbound and hit the front of a westbound vehicle toward the passenger side," Chicago Lawn District Lt. Gerald Koch said. Preliminary reports showed Cole may have had a blood-alcohol level as much as three times the legal limit, Koch said.

It does not take an Einstein to figure out who was at fault in this terrible act of negligence!

So what? DUI is a problem no matter how many DUIs MAAD records.

Well i knew Siralbert well as a person. He never meant any harm to anyone. He would never jepardize his life or the life of his child. Sometimes in life we may chose the wrong way to go,Drastically he took that way. Yes he may have taken the life of others, in which i know he totally regrets. In that token though he also payed the price for that. Sadly his own life was taken. No fingers to point. No one was there to vouch for what happened, there's only room left for imagination, and assuming. We all make mistakes, no one can be judged if not being judged by GOD!

Or maybe the dangers of IRAQ (or DUI) are extremely overblown because of the lies and exaggerations of Bush and MADD.
Bush did it better starting a war with ZERO WMD's.
MADD comes in second by claiming 17,000+ deaths where the number of innocent victims is only 3,000. Unless you consider the idiot drunk drivers who kill themselves are also innocent victims, then the real number is about 9,000.

What does this have to do with Iraq? Your argument is asinine.

DUI is a huge problem even if ONE life is lost as a result of !d!ots thinking that they're "just a little drunk".

Designate a driver. What is so hard about that? And if you don't have any friends, call a cab or STAY HOME and drink.

Comparing the lies of Bush and MADD is called making an analogy. Look it up.
While you're at it, research the definition of drunk driver which has changed over the years and now includes "Drivers in the .08 to .09 range [who] often do not exhibit the blatant erratic driving of higher BAC offenders, so that the evidence for probable cause may not be present for stopping a vehicle." A MADD quote to promote checkpoints
Low BAC drivers are the majority of the DUI arrestees. The killers fall into the .12 and above range, which used to be the definition of a drunk driver before the Prohibition driven MADD, Inc. got involved.
MADD wants to make "drinking and driving" a crime through scare tactics as BS. It doesn't hurt to spend a few hundred million dollars on the campaign, to boot.
It is working, since rarely does a death caused by a speeder or red light runner bring out the emotional hatred and cries for vengeance and stiffer laws that a simple DUI arrest does.
Anyone who is responsible for a highway death should be severely punished. 10 years minimum would be fine with me and I don't care if the killer was a stupid drunk or just a stupid sober driver. Dead is dead.
Justice is not putting the guy who had two beers in jail for 10 days and giving a crazy red light runner a $100 fine.

DUI is NOT an accident. It is a choice. That's why when you kill someone while driving drunk you get charged with reckless homicide.

Designate a driver.

JUST TO SENT THE STORY STRAIGHT SINCE NO ONE BUT THE PEOPLE IN THAT CAR KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.... I WAS IN THE WHITE CROWN VICTORIA WITH SIR ALBERT COLE. HE WAS A GOOD GUY. EVERYONE IS REALING FROM THIS ACCIDENT AND WE WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF EVERYONE STOPPED POINTING FINGERS IN OUR DIRECTION. IF YOU WEREN'T THERE IN THE CAR WITH US THEN SHUT UP ABOUT IT. MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY WHOS CAR WE HIT. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART I AM VERY SORRY. THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT WILL TAKE YOUR PAIN AWAY AND BRING YOUR FAMILY BACK. I WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE FACT THAT I DIDN'T CAUSE THE ACCIDENT BY I WAS IN A CAR THE TOOK THE LIVES OF 4 PEOPLE. I AM RECOVERING LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. LET US BE PLEASE, WE'VE BEEN THROUGH A LOT JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. LIKE I SAID I AM DEEPLY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSSES AND I WISH I COULD BRING THEM BACK BUT I CAN'T. I PRAY EVERY NIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY PRAYERS.
