    what i wonder is why we don't come down HARDER on DUI's. I think there should be stiffer penalties. Obviously what we are doing is not enough!

    My state is toughening the drunk driving laws. My 21yo brother got a DUI last year and lost his license for over a year (1st offense). He also had to do some jail time. This has been a real deterrent to him because now he has a zero tolerance, if he gets stopped and blows anything over 0.0 he will lose his license again. I'm all for tougher laws on driving under the influence. You're taking other people's lives as well as your own into your hands when you drive impaired.
