Who are you referring to when you say "they"? Is it the crappy drivers or the drivers that make crappy decisions like drinking and driving? No sense spending tax dollars to fix a problem that is based in poor choices.

Right on, desterjibs! Bottom line is, gotta take responsibility - that means, folks: drinking is fine BUT if ya drink, DON"T DRIVE - that means anything, including, but not limited to, motorcycles, cars, trucks, vans, motor homes, trailers, semis, scooters, planes, trains, bicycles & pogo sticks (in the road), whatever........ If yer gonna drive - go sober! Always!
