That's part of the problem these dolts still get behind the wheel whether they have a valid licence or not. Something more strict needs to be done so they don't have this opportunity. Whether it be jail or I don't know maybe we could cut their hands off after the 2nd or 3rd offence. Its a problem that's not easily solved but someone needs to come up with a reasonable idea soon. Nothing we are doing now is working.

You have inspired me. Imagine all vehicles equipped with a sensing device in the area of the drivers floor board. It seeks electronic impulses generated by court ordered anklets. If you are convicted and with out a license to drive, you must were the device. Which will prevent the vehicle from starting if the person in the drivers seat happens to be wearing the court ordered electronic anklet.

That way

They already have those devices that you have to blow into in order to start the car. They charge so much for them that some people convicted of drunk driving don't bother getting one and just drive illegally.

It's unbelievable how when someone gets arrested for drunk driving how many people come out of the woodwork acting like goody too shoes.All you people saying lock him up, never drive again, get real.The drinking and driving laws are so stringet now you can't even go out to dinner and have 2 drinks without being"LEGALLY" drunk. People lose their licences and it leads to higher unemployment cause people can't get to and from work.So all you big mouths who parade around acting like angels get ready, cause the next time you go out to eat with you husband,wife,date, etc.,watch out cause it's gonna happen to you.You're probably the same people who say"no, my kid would never do that", and your kid has done more drugs than most people hanging out at the shelter on Middlesex St.

Missing the point I think. Not all of us are angels sure Ive gone out had a drink or two with my husband, BUT I have not been arrested for DUI and then gone and done it not one but 2 more times. Its the habitual thing that gets people irritated. Learn from your mistakes. Don't continue to do it over and over again and put others at risk. That's all.

And then there are the ones that call their kid over to the car and say "Johnny, blow into the tube for me." I'm talking about something that would be standard on all vehicles. A common as a catalytic converter.

If there is one thing the Automotive industry wants, it is to sell the safest most reliable auto available. We don't need the Government to push this down to us. We need us to push this on the government.

Install it at the Auto plant. Then blame the Government if they let one of their convicts get behind the wheel without the anti-start anklet.

I don't Judge, i try to understand. I try to SEE a problem and it's cause. Then look for a solution. How would it make this mans life better by putting him in Jail for two years?
If he had killed somebody, or severely hurt somebody, i would not be so compassionate. By being arrested four times, you have to understand what a lucky break this guy is getting.
I'm not saying the screws should not be tightened on this man. He does need some stern guidance, yes, even a grow man. But it is important to do so in a way that helps to build this mans life up, and not tear it down.
When you consider a Judges actions, you must realize that Justice is not solely meant to be a tool of the prosecution. But also as a balance for the defendant. That is something that all prosecutors are keenly aware of.
If i were a prosecutor, i would seek to put him in jail for 2 1/2 years. That would be my job, those would be my tools.
I am just glad that this sorrowful man did not hurt anybody. And that he has been giving a lucky break. A chance to reform himself.
? I Dont get your logic, what we should wait until he kills someone! com'on

Man...I couldn't think of a better way to start the day. I have to commend this man. While most people are still in bed, sleeping off the drinks they had the previous night, this man wastes no time to starting the day. I wonder what he said to himself when he woke up that morning. "I'm ganna drink so much that I won't remember my name by noon." Haha well looks like he beat his own personal best. Keep on keeping on. Someone buy this man a drink. I'm sure he needs it.
I couldn't think of a better way to start the day!Wash down my breakfast with BUD and a little vodka,and off to work I go.

1 - Any type of restriction added to the car will need a major push as most of the Libitarians and ACLU types will protest.

2 - Make one was an add on and bring to CES. Best place to get seen for the car industry than trying to get an hour of some auto admin type's time.

3 - Permanent jail terms.

What happened to calling a cab! It has to be cheaper than fines, lost work time, lawyers and not to mention living with the fact that you killed someone because you where stupid enough to drive when you where cocked.
