At least there would be no threepeat drunk drivers if we follow Guy's law.

It would be best to make it very difficult for soaks(drunks,alcoholics)to be arrested for DUI. The solution would be to revoke the license of a soak for the first offense for 10 years. If caught driving before the time lapse of 10 years,do the right thing and simply execute the SOB. Follow my rational advice,and this will be curbed at least 90%,a good start for dealing with these deadly cretins.

As a non drinker, i want to say Thank You for teaching me to understand why some of you like 4thebetter and others rant and rave, screaming on here. It is because of slamming a 12 pack. Wow!

Why is this forum used for personal Attacks. Please stick to the subject. .08 BAC is enough. Leave it alone. Drink a 12 pack and drive? Probably means tolerance level is elevated because of considerable, consistant used of the alcohol drug. Doesn't mean you're not above .08 Unbelieveable!

beepbeep,You just do not get it do you. Your rhetoric is typical for an alcoholic. Sounds like the alcohol has already pickled your brain with your delusion of grander and reasoning power. It very typical for an alcoholic to think they are right and the smartest, and the rest of the world is wrong and idiots.

beepbeep, You are just spewing more rhetoric of a typical alcoholic. An alcoholic always think they are special and above the norm.

Well said Toehead. Part of the definition of being an alcoholic is that you are a selfish person who only thinks of themselves and their stupid bad habit.

beepbeep, Drunks always have a selfish reason for drinking,as stated by you, "once they arrest the guy thats minding his own business and has a beer or two after work and is over this ridiculously low BAC then he most likely will lose his job." You are not minding you own business when you drink and drive. You are imposing your selfish will upon others. I know when I have just one beer at home I can feel the effects and I'm not a small person or new to drinking. A person that drinks and drives is just saying screw everybody else it's all about me.

This guy is a blowhard little momma's boy that likes to dress up and play cops and robbers. How can you make a statement like that about as long as there are cars there will be drunks driving them. This person lost a family member then you make such a rude statement. I hope they past the law like the Islam does when they catch a stuck driver.... Go google that moron

You creep you would pick on someone who lost a little child to justify you right to drink and drive and have your buddies in blue follow you home. HYPOCRITE.

@beepbeep: You've never lost a 3 month old niece to a drunk driver, have you? She was lying on my sister's lap when they were hit head on by a drunk driver. My nephew went thru' the windshield from the back seat.

NEED I SAY MORE?????? And I won't even go into the rest of this horrid story.

The only good thing--the drunk driver drinks and drives no more. It's hard to drive when you're 6 feet under.

Beepbeep, you need to come up for air. It's simple. Don't drink and drive. Period.

Not to go off subject. And I understand completely why they want to make the change in the alcohol level.

But with that said, it's not just people who "drink an drive" that are impaired. There are a lot of people who DON'T drink an drive that cannot see to drive that are still on the roads. Especially at night.
