So another adult under the legal age of being allowed to drink gets into an accident and kills people other than him/herself.

I've said it before and will say it again... it is time to wind back the clock and RETURN TO 18 BEING THE AGE TO LEGALLY DRINK.

Most 18 yr olds can't afford cars.... let em get drunk, throw up, pray to the porcelin god a few times and get it out of their system. By the time they can / do drive, they will know better.

The Nanny State of Paranoia that we live in is the real cause to all of these DWI Tragedies.

And I say again, it is time for the gutless wonders in Albany to pass a law that impounds the cars of those arrested for dwi and holds them till the license is restored. On second offenses, I would crush the vehicle.

Frankly, I wish a third offense could crush the vehicle with the driver still in it, but bleeding hearts and huggy fluffy do-gooders are running the state and country currently.

"Most 18 yr olds can't afford cars"

I got news for you buddy, granted I live in an upper middle class community but when I graduated from HS in 2006 I would say about 95% of the 450ish seniors had their own vehicles.

My feeling is that DWI drivers who kill/injure should lose driving privileges for life, and are charged with murder or attempted murder. If caught again on the roads then its death by public hanging with the body left visible for all to see with a big card on a necklace saying "DRUNK DRIVERS ... THINK TWICE".

another stupid drunk on the road who kills someone, how much more innocent people have to die due to drunk drivers. they really need to crack down on these laws, to many good people are dying- what is the death toll going to go up to before the laws change regarding drunk drivers

My solution is even better. Give everybody the same little rubber skinned car. 90 horse power. If you want to look spiffy put a racing stripe on it.

I was once told that cars that have licenses being with ALE are registered to an individual that was found guilty of drunk driving. I don't believe this is factual, but I do believe it could be effective. Why should people w/ DWI's be allowed to blend back onto our streets? A little humiliation could go a long way in deterring these drunks.
And on a different note, her myspace is so skeevy.

LOL-no, it's not true; my plate begins with ALE! You should have seen my face when I received it! And, I guarantee that I never, ever drink and drive. LOL- I wonder if people pass me on the road and think that!

people will always drink. people will always drive drunk. no matter how harsh of a law you make, people will die from drunks anyway. No one has stopped murdering and its been a crime since, a few thousand years probably.

Very few things infuriate me more than hearing of an innocent life taken by a drunk driver. Ms. Santos knew full well that she was responsible for driving a vehicle before she ingested a single ounce of alcohol. Driving a motor vehicle is a privilege, not an entitlement, and it is a privilege she should do without for the rest of her life. Ms. Urgo won't receive a second chance, neither should Ms. Santos. My prayers go out to ALL families.

you can't just impound their cars indefinitely. it sounds like a great fix but what do you do when someone borrows mom's car? you take mom's car away? i had a friend hold my keys one night b/c i was drinking and then she got drunk and drove MY car home! thankfully, nothing happened - but I was being responsible, it would be unfair to just take someone's car away.

This is a situation that will self correct. If you snatch a drunk's car, you would be surprised how quickly he is likely to run out of friends if they know theirs is going to be next. Would you loan your car to someone whose own car had been impounded for drunk driving?
