Aww its so nice to see a....Puke!!!! Sorry this whole thing made me sick. So let me see i blow a .09 for the first time and i am 28 no dui's and now i have to have ignition system if i get nailed once. Keep your ignorant comments to yourself until you can drink or even drive. I have no respect for this opinion since good people with a touch to much to drink would pay for it. Yes there are the constant offenders and yes they need it so just wait for 2 offenses. Plus why the hell are you putting a middle school kids opinion on drinking here. He is not old enough to drink or drive, so please stick to things that he has experience with.
It's because of idiots like you that we need laws such as this one. News is illegal to drink and drive. Period. If you decide to break the law than you deserve the pay the consequence. Unfortunately, when it comes to DUI, the drunk driver usually walks away and the person(s) he hits pay with their lives.

Dude... seriously? lol
What do you do that makes you think this kid needs to "get a life"?
* You're not gonna reply cause you can't.... and thats fine
he might not repy, but I will!
The state rep in that dist. 145th is whacked self-righteous moralist.
He is against gambling but yet he supports the lottery.
Now he is using this no life kid to promote his career a little farther.
Bring home more bacon from the feds, so he could use it as his walking around money, in the 145th...something he has been doing his entire career...paying for his "career" via our tax dollars!
The kid..yeah screwed up....someone has him thinking that gov has all the solutions, and he fails to realize for every unconstitutional law passed a new criminal is born. Give him another 9 yrs and lets see how he handles spring break! I say send the kid and clymer to NY to fill in for the ousted hypocrite Spitzer!

I had to have one of these devices installed on my car. Let me tell you, it's a real wake up call that changes the way you think about drinking and driving.
Since having the device installed, and when I know I'll be going out with my buddies for a few drinks, I inflate about a half dozen beach balls and throw them in the back seat of my car. After arriving at the bar or club, I transfer one of the balls to my buddy's SUV. Before heading for home after a few drinks, I'll use the truck's heater to warm up the beach ball. It's tough to get the stored air to just the right temperature, but within a few months of having the device installed, you start to get a good feel for how long you need to run the heater to get the job done.(Newer vehicles tend to have better heaters and get the job done more quickly. I wouldn't recommend going out for drinks with someone who still drives a Maverick, especially during the colder winter months...consider taking a bus or cab instead.)
Anyway, once the air in the beach ball is heated to about 97-99 degrees F, I can use it to start my car. The part that sucks the most is having to drive all the way home with the heater on full blast, but you need to have the remaining beach balls ready in case the system wants a retest on the way home.

First of all N. Nolte is an argument for just automatically suspending driving privalages altogether,(and might want to seek help) going to such extremes to "drink AND drive". Having said that, I know N.C. also requires an interlock device for first offences based not wholly but partly to the bac of the driver. I actually do have one on my vehicle and don't, and never have, condoned drinking and driving. But at a Christmas party had too much, got pulled for a normal traffic stop and was charged. The device I currently have in my vehicle is a pain in the a@@, and has had to be replaced 5 times. The law does need work and needs to more consistent,however, I do not drink at all, have returned to the AA program, and for me was a wake up call. I think the law, like any other, can and will be circumvented by "the lowest common denominator, like most other laws, but still if made more consistant will help in the long run.
