Nassau's wall of shame for DWI is the same as a sex offender registry made public. Both are a menace to society.

And know the Senator from Virginia wants to bring back the 55 MPH speed limit. The speed limit has been nothing but a joke on the LIE for years now.

Why does somebody always have to bring up the immigration issue, regardless of what the article is about? Did they say the people charged with DWI were all minorities? No. In fact their race was never even brought up.
They are only talking about the drunken idiots who don't plan ahead and try to drive home drunk after partying over 4th of July weekend. Stick to the issue being discussed and stop blaming it on legal status.

Oh, and i suppose Luz Valverde (the lady charged with DWI) is Irish? Perhaps Chinese? Hmmm-what do you think?

How come the cops don't check out all these cars with North Carolina license plates loaded up with three hundred mexicans in them.It would give them something to do on those other days that aren't holidays. I would love to hear about all the car insurance policies that they carry.May-be one of Steve Levys' Family members has to get rear ended before something is done.I would love to see you collect compensation from jose sanchez to cover all the hospital bills. This Island is Blind to what these immigrants get away with.

The numbers still prove that out of driving drunk 2000 times they will only catch you one time. And newsday do you think these drunk driver's are reading this article. No, they are drinking.

Agreed ... Newsday is really starting to peeve me off with their holier-than-thou fingerpointing. ENOUGH already, Newsday! Are you an outlet of JOURNALISM, or are you the errand-boy servant of Nassau DA Rice? Is this a newspaper or a public service announcement???

70% of fatalities may be from sober people, but around 99% of drivers are sober. Ask someone more intelligent than you what this means and you could see why driving while intoxicated is a problem.

Oh, by the way, ask this smarter person about the 20% thing...that math doesnt work either.
