When are folks going to start taking responsibility for their actions & decisions? First thoughts & prayers go out to the love ones that are left behind because it still hurts. Second , as for as putting more law enforcement on the highways by this time it's TOO late. People who are intoxicated think they can still drive so unless they are prevented from trying to operate a vehicle it's too late. My suggestion is to stop gas stations , grocery stores etc from selling alcohol ( and certainly from selling it cold) and only allow it to be sold from the red dot stores and not cold. This way it would be easier to monitor,police & regulate who buys. Make the punishment severe for anyone who breaks the laws and then enforce them. The laws being age and also selling to someone who is supspected of already being drunk.Also why not make it illegal for anyone who has been caught drinking & driving before to never be able to buy alcohol again in additon to losing their driving privilge. Folks innocent people have lost their lives because of someone else's bad desicion. And last , for bars,honky tonks,night clubs or what ever you want to call them why not make them pay for law enforcement to be manned at their establishments and everone coming in has to surrender their keys and when they leave the MUST give a copy of their tab showing how much they drank and over what time frame and take a breath/sobriety test before they are cleared to drive. I know this sounds like infringing on someone's rights but again folks innocent lives are taken every day because some one else thinks they have the right to drink & drive. And as stated above in my post LET THE ESTABLISHMENTS PAY FOR THE LAW ENFORCEMENT not the tax payers. The tax payer isn't the one profitting from the sale the ESTABLISHMENT is. And if ESTABLISHMENTS don't want to pay it let them pass it on to their customers.

I would like to thank you for your blog on this accident and want to say you have the right idea. If only every one could use their mind the way you just did we would all be much safer on the road as it is not a playground. Perhaps you would send your idea to MADD they would have the resource to push our law makers to make a difference. Thank you again for your coment. i can tell you only 1 was not drunk and was a inocent victom...
