Sorry folks.......so sick of these drunk drivers, and the lives they ruin with their careless actions. Just wish that any one who even sits behind the wheel of a car while impaired from drinking or drugs, pays the ultimate price...their life!
Nothing seems to deter these idiots! They are never too drunk, or too high to drive! It will never happen to me, I can handle my alcohol, they say. Well folks, it does not seem to matter what time you drive, one of these fools are out on the same roads we're driving on, and truly it seems, but for the grace of God, you make it home safely! You drunks are such a pathetic bunch of losers!

It seems like Nassau County gets all the spotlight, but what about the Southampton Village Police officer that was struck by a drunk driver in a marked patrol car the other night.

So what - a few drinks never hurt anyone. Suozzi is just pandering to the non-drinking zealots. Would Suozzi sit in a car with a Kennedy driving?

What the NCPD should do is charge these idiots with a bias crime for intentionally hitting a patrol car. How can you not know itís a police car with all the flashing lights and a very distinctive look?
They also need to make these people pay for the cars out of their pockets. Itís not fair to raise insurance rates of everyone when only a select few choose to hit these innocent cars. Itís also unfair to pay for replacement cars with our tax dollars. I donít remember the exact figure, but the last figure I read showed each car has a price tag of over $100,000. Make these fools pay.

Too bad the drunks canít hit only each other. That would make for some funny stories.

you are right...some have driven home drunk...but lots are smart enough to learn not to drink and drive..and as far as RIce is concerned..well at least she is doing something at least it is a beginning...as far as your statistics go...that is why there are called accidents...and mostly because of cell phones and text messaging...while driving...I think the fines should be higher and mandatory jail time and your car impounded if you arrested and convicted of drunk driving...even a minor offense...maybe 30 in jail..that should pretty much screw you up financially in this finicial nightmare we are living in...and people on your cell phones....driving...well sometimes I think I may want to take my chances againest a drunk driver anytime then deal with you...especially the jerk in the silver car Friday morning around 7:45 on the Meadowbrook in the left lane going north..tying up traffic...test messaging...now this was a f---ing jerk...and then when he was done..takes off like the ass wipe he is doing 70..

Outrage! Anyone who drives could become a victim of a drunk driver. Slaughter on the highways by drunk and drug impaired drivers must be dealt with harshly to send a message to these would be killers of innocent people and children.

The focus on DWI is totally correct.However what about the non drinking driver who terrifies us all every day and gets away with almost murder.
They are all around us,stop on red,yield,stop signs,speed limit,tailgating,cell phones etc etc.They have no fear at all do they as they do their thing.
