This is why all cars should be equipped with breathalyser starters. If you are drunk your car should 'know-it' and refuse to move until you sober up. If you bypass the breathalyser starter and kill someone on the road then the murder you committed is premeditated and you should go to jail forever if not get the death penalty in some states.

As for price, well the sudden demand to equip all cars with them would make the price plummet on volume to about the cost of a set of cheap tires. Currently they cost about the same as expensive tires,$900 plus installation. So car breathalysers are very doable, its really a matter of how many people have to die before we are willing to make it happen.

Who wants to say that the piece of schitt Walter Wiezel is an outstanding person?
The story doesn't state, but I wonder if the kid was crossing at the green or in the middle of the road.

I agree with you all cars should have a breathalizer starter especially if the person had more than one dwi. He deserves what he gets and i dont feel sorry for him but i do feel sorry for the boy he hit that is in critical condition. Hopefully the boy will recover from this but the boy does not make it the parents should sue and he should get life imprisonment because once a drunk always a drunk and he did it this time how many more times will he do it and get out of jail? His license should be revoked permantely..

No kid is is retarted and they should of have an adult with them. Kids will be kids and make honest mistakes. Did you ever try to cross that road well i used to when i was his age and almost made a honest mistake so dont say if his friends were retarded. JUST REMEMBER KIDS WILL BE KIDS AND IT COULD OF BEEN AN ADULT THAT WAS HIT INSTEAD..........
