First let me say that no-one should be drinking and driving. the fines should be the same for all who have a valid drivers license. Next the house and senate keep wasting taxpayer dollars by using their time to vote on messures like this. First vote should be a vote to get The State of Virginia out of the alcohol business. How can a state rule or enact laws on what it condones and makes a profit on. Wake up, open your eyes

Tyrone, these are the same people who continue to attack cigarette smokers, but not the companies who make them because they still like the tax money that cigarettes bring to the state. They should either ban cigarettes from being made, or back off the people who exercise their right to be addicted to a legal drug. Maybe Virginia should have doctors prescribe Cigarettes so House and Senate would have someone else to blame. They seem to have come up with a figure for second hand smoke deaths, but none for first hand smoke deaths. It's a known fact that 100% of us will die.
