Mind your own darn business you tattletales!
Tattletales? For what? Making sure someone doesn't kill innocent people (especially the poor 8 year old in her car) by weaving and crossing the double yellow? Clearly, you are one of those drunk drivers who doesn't belong on the roads...

Please don't compare alcoholism or drug addiction to cancer. No one makes a choice to get cancer (except those fools who smoke). Everyone makes a choice to start drinking or taking drugs. Maybe they become addicted but they made a consious choice to have their first drink. Addiction is the sign a weak mind.
I couldn't agree more...and let's not forget that they make the choice not only to drink/take drugs, but to get behind the wheel as well. I have no sympathy for that.

They have isolated a gene in alocoholics which may lead to the disease, and yes, it is a disease. As a disease it is not something people ask for. Too bad it is easy to judge.
I don't believe alcoholism is a disease either. If she lived in a place without alcohol she wouldn't be drinking and driving. But she could come down with cancer, ms, arthritis,
etc. Diseases.
Calling alcohol drinking a disease
comparable to real disease's is an insult to insult.
If alcoholics insist on calling it a disease then when it is determined they have this "disease" they automatically lose their ability to have a drivers license.
Lets see how many will acquire this "disease" then.

And when does it become someones's business - after she kills someone?? Thank God some people have the brains to get involved BEFORE that happens.

I was married to an alcoholic...I do NOT feel bad for them...they make their own choices and think of nobody but themselves! Who i DO feel sorry for is that poor son of hers..to have a mother like that! Lock her up!

this happens all the time everywhere. It just gets reported every time on L.I. through newsday and news 12. I think it's a good idea and a deterrant for most people. New York has one of the lowest drunk driving death rates in the country. It's in the bottom five.

Remember that when a drunk crosses a double yellow line & smashes into your dumb a$$ while people around look the other way.

They won't even list a DESCRIPTION of the person if they are black, they certainly won't post a picture.

Stupid people shouldn't be allowed to drive. After having a history of DUI, or any major traffic offense, you shuold be legally declared "Stupid". Forget about taking away your license...we know that doesn't work. Thier car and access to other vehicles should also be removed. If that person happens to be caught behind the wheel again, the owner of that vehicle should be held responsible.

Wouldn't it be nice to drive without having to worry about the "Stupid" drivers?

That so called "tattletale" just may have saves YOUR life. Isn't it posible that you, your family or someone you know was on the road?

I appreciate that this person acted responsibly and spoke up. I live in Commack and I travel that road all the time with my kids.
