Why only focus on teens

So why is the state only focusing on teen drivers, when adults who drink and drive only get a slap on the hand and are released to injure somone else. We need much tougher drinking and driving laws. If you drink and then drive, that's premeditated. You know you'll probably hurt someone when you drive.

Welcome to Indiana. This guy has it made. A sober trucker can mow down an individual on a motorcycle and get away with a $130 ticket. And people can have several DUI's before they even get their license suspended. Since this is his first offense here in Indiana, I'm guessing that he'll just get the standard "Bad boy, don't do it again" speech from the judge and be done with it.
