Like all the other DUI drivers out there, 1. They didn't plan on driving drunk, 2. It's not their fault, it was the Beer or Wine or Drugs, 3.They always promise not to do it again if you let them off each time, 4. beside it was ONLY 1 BEER or glass of Wine or just a joint, 5.(The Big One) 3 strikes your out only applies to Felonies like Murder and you can ALWAYS plee bargain down because you feel real bad because you got caught. And don't forget in Vermont it's not a life it's just a FETUS !!

So all the good I've done to keep my license clean is all for naught, I simply just need to obtain a few DUI's and the police will allow me to drive anyWHERE!!!
, so WHY do EYE need to follow the rules and laws when all these drunks with their DUI's don't have to?
here is your solution to your not being able to keep multiple DUI recipients off the damned roads..PUT SOME SORT OF AUTOMOBILE ANKLE BRACELET ON THEM, THE SAME WAY YOU PUT THEM ON THE JAIL BABIES. PROBLEM SOLVED, THAT WAY ANYTIME THEY GET INTO A VEHICLE BEHIND THE WHEEL ...POLICE WILL BE ALERTED TO THEIR SATELLITE POSITION AND THEY CAN GO ARREST THEM AND KEEP SOMEONE FROM GETTING KILLED, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THIS KID IS GOING TO DO, KILL SOMEONE SOME DAY, HOPEFULLY HIMSELF. I'LL WAGER IF HE CRASHED INTO A COP CAR AND KILLED THE OFFICER, YOU COULD BET YOUR A S S THEY'D make SURE he didn't drive again huh buncha a'holes

GMB- run for presedent. Did you see the article in yesterday's rutland herald about the woman who got a 3rd dui when the 2nd one was still in court? She was out on $500 bail on the 2nd dui and got another dui, and the judge released her with the condition she was not allowed to posess any car keys.What a joke.

I think we should donate his an old VW with no working air bags and a leaky gas line for his next crash! Maybe throw in a gallon of gas for the front trunk just for good measure.

Start going to A.A. daily and I guaron-tee your drinking while it may not stop right away,it will not be anywhere as enjoyable as it used to be! The regular attendance of these meetings will slowly but surely work their way into your daily life and RUIN your drinking! Which by the way is the point of going to them. You have to stop drinking long enough to go. Even if it takes a legal intervention to get you into the rooms the A.A. way will help you to be miserable every time you take a drink and that is as it should be.Here's looking at YOU? See Ya!

fourth offense? maybe he should start losing body parts for each subsequent offense (beacause you KNOW there will be more). Maybe that would deter the would be drunk drivers. A toe here, a finger there....better than having them kill someone else because they don't smarten up.

Maybe he'll kill someone next time and you can only hope it is not someone you know ! Hopefully just himself. With a good lawer and the courts plea-bargaining he'll probally just get a light sentence of serving food at the mission for 2 weeks . Than he'll be out there again in his white van like a rolling casket !!!!!

-In Denver they install a breathalyzer on your car and the costs are paid by YOU! Agreed,stricter scenarios need to be put in place! I have 3 D.WI.s and got my last one in 92. Have not re offended since! WHY? I don't like jail. They put me in jail for my last one,I got the message! NEVER got a D.L.S. WHY? I don't like jail. G'day.
