Well, obviously we are all wrong Hector. Drinking and driving doesn't kill people. Nor does excessive speed or reckless driving. Of course, you know best. You know it's just fine to drink and drive. It won't hurt anyone. Everyone will go home just fine, right?

As I said, go find the local bar, tie one on and wrap yourself around a tree. Then we'll find out what you think of DUI. Just, heaven forbid, take anyone with you on your way down!

You are a delusional scumbag who obviously can't see facts when they are put in front of him.

Drinking and driving causes drunk driving tickets. Speeding and driving causes speeding tickets.

drinking causes lack of judgement or poor reflexes which causes ones auto to behave in a manner not fit for the road. This causes the auto to strike another auto which causes those auto parts to hurt the other people inside the cars.

I don't know why I bother to continue this discussion.

But this is called CAUSE AND EFFECT. While drinking may not directly kill someone the effects of drinking and driving DO when autos collide together due to the gross negligence of people who insist on drinking and driving.

Obviously you have some personal history that you need to deal with as you are in sincere denial. I hope you get over it soon and own up to whatever grief you caused someone else.

And by the way, don't drink and drive anymore, ok? You could kill someone!

He probably has one of those insurance policies sold to people who want to have a lawyer get them out of everything. I would not say he has caused me grief he just uses smoke and mirrors to scurry around facts.

And studies already have proven that talking on a cell phone while driving causes more impairment than drink driving does...but thanks to the fact that cell phone impaired drivers are featured with symbols of "goodness" and drink drivers are featured with symbols of "evilness" it makes no small wonder who gets to lose their lively hoods and family fortunes over a traffic ticket and who doesn't.

Besides, age impaired drivers kill boat loads.

Why don't we actually lock up people who do kill or harm someone and not the driver who has a tail light out that get's caught simply with a BAC?

As an Accident Reconstructionist and Trooper of several years. I have listed unsafe speed, reckless driving, fail to control speed, too fast for conditions, and several other titles taht deal with speed. As every other officer will tell you, when you get an uninformed idiot, like yourself, who thinks that they have all the answers. It's probabley more true that you got a ticket for speeding and are just miffed about it.

It dosent take a rocket scientist to realize that when you speed, you are exceding a speed that was tested to detremine a safe speed for the roadway, reaction time, and several other considerations. What do you think we just pull a speed out of cracker jack box, just to piss you off.

I lived in Elkhorn several years ago and have witnessed some real horrific car crashes, and Yep, You guessed it speed and alcohol were factors. So go instal your radar detectors and keep your ignorant opinions to yourself.

I guess its been a few days since Hector has opened his mouth and showed the whole world how uninformed he really is. i just hope that he didn't test the speed and alcohol combination, and drive his car into a tree, or a family.

Just a week ago I worked a crash that killed a family of 4. Yep, and guess what genious. A speeding drunk walked away without a scratch, but only after he hit them head on.

I just wish an officer would have scene that so called broken tail light before the crash.

Before you make some kind of smart comment think about this. What if it was your mother, wife, and two daughters that were killed, and I was standing at your front door instead of his. Now how stupid is it to be stopping speeders and drunks.

Actually, if you were a cop, you'd know specifically the method with which speed limits are derived, the terms arbitrary and capricious come to mind.

Secondly, the terms factor and cause possess two separate definitions.

Ha, I just got of the phone with my attorney. I found that one of the officers at my traffic stop dated his report off a month early and then signed it. Apparently, the officers wrote the police report a month early after talking to a palm reader, then patiently waited for their fortune to come true when they seen me coming down the road. Man, those cops are patient, tough and dumb...and if you're going to be dumb, you gotta be tough.

1. You better call before you be standing at my front door, my home IS my castle nut.

2. "Wishing" is not a process of the criminal justice system.

3. 60 percent of highway fatalities are not alcohol related. If you're going to wish something, why don't you wish that perfectly sober drivers who cause categorically the most death and destruction be stopped before their negligent acts cause death, mayhem, maiming and destruction?

Sober drivers kill and maim people in big bleeding batches, why don't they list "sobriety" as the cause of accidents? Hmmmm?

Defining "cause and effect" for a college paper would probably get you a good grade for your assignment, if it was grammatically correct, possessed proper citations and was correctly written in APA format.

However, you have not proved to me adequately that in car collision deaths, the possession of a BAC by the driver was the "cause" of death, nor have you shown that it would be listed as a "cause" in the police officer's traffic collision report.

"Cause" and "factor" possess two separate definitions.

It's time to get age impaired drivers off the road, they are worse than drunks. It's time for kids and grand kids of grandma and grandpa to start driving them around.

And in this story a 5 year old was "ejected" onto a highway. The parents didn't have that kid buckled in, the parents were impaired with stubidity...time to ban drivers impaired with stubidity off the roads as well. The parents of this kid need to go to jail for negligent homicide as well, if it was found they did not have their kid properly belted in its seat.

(July 18, 2008)A grand jury will review evidence after police say a 70-year-old driver caused a fatal rollover by making an illegal left turn in Lufkin and then just hours later drove into the back of a stopped car, setting off an eight-vehicle chain reaction pileup that left the elderly man and another person injured.

A medical advisory board will review whether Isaac Melvin Milstid of Houston should have his driver's license revoked, authorities said, and case is also expected to go before a grand jury.

Police allege Milstid made an illegal left turn early Wednesday afternoon in Lufkin that caused a car in which five people were riding to roll, killing Bertress Allen, 75, of Gladewater.

A 5-year-old passenger was ejected onto the highway.

Lufkin police say Milstid didn't show signs of being intoxicated or of having health problems.

But four hours later, in Diboll, police say Milstid was driving about 70 miles-per-hour when he rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light.

That caused a chain-reaction that led to accidents involving five other cars and a tractor-trailer.

Milstid and two others were injured in the second accident.

Milstid was cited for failure to control speed in the second accident."

I agree that as people age there may be a decrease in their ability to drive. I also agree that cell phones are a liability on the road.

What I don't understand, Hector, is how you are so willing to concede these two liabilities on the road but can't concede that driving while drinking and excessive speed are also liabilities on the road.

It must be hard to say that two things you most obviously do (drink/drive & speed) are liabilities. But they are, so QUIT IT NOW.

And trooper, you really need to use spell check. Your point is lost in your bad grammar. Who can really believe you are an educated person with spelling like that?

Don't worry about "Hector" anymore... as you can see, for some reason his "traffic stop" warranted a police report. Gee- I wonder why? Probably because he was arrested for something, probably DUI.

And now, he's locked up, deported, or just moved on to animal porn sites instead of these blogs.

Sometimes, it's unfortunate that "there's room for everyone in this world".
