True enough, but think about it, the list doesn't end there. Look, I'm not going to say driving drunk is a good idea. Its not. Its irresponsible and stupid, but I dont think its the "evil" thing folks make it out to be, and I'll tell you why:61bone said:Kinda smacks of "big brotherism" but if would keep GDDD's off the road I'm all for it. Not that I support it, but seems odd that pot is illegal but booze isn't.
Now all we need is a moron detector and a cel shutdown.
Wrong..... Law Enforcement is trained to focus on "crimes" which fill the coffers. Currently the law does not support vehicle forfeiture for driving drunk. So the carnage continues.Henry Highrise said:In response to KillerFormula.........The drunks are caught more than the others. Probably because law enforcement is trained to kind of focus on them. .
Nothing is perfect....this world is not a utopia.......how safe is releaseing a murderer that was sentenced to life? A lot of them get parole after 7 years.killerformula said:You're probably both right, cops are trained to find drunks, and probably the governments are capitalizing on it. The financial penalties are huge... but you can usually still drive even after the second offense! Seems somewhat.... unsafe.
That's because they need the jail space for non-violent drug offenders. This gets right back to my previous post.

But the problem really lies with the voters. They are afraid to vote for the candidate who tells them the truth. They'd much rather put a POS in office who lies to them. The electorate are really just a bunch of scared children who want daddy to tell them that everything is fine, despite the reality.dinger said:Yet when it comes to the serious issues, immigration, death penalty, taxes, don't count on any politicians to make a stand, they may offend someone.

You said it Brother!!! All we need is more damned laws to help us not kill ourselves. Also can you imagine the cost of repair or replacement of this system if you had to pay for the cost of swapping out the steering wheel with the system and airbag?!dinger said:One of the problems with our society is that stupidity is not against the law. One by one, government is taking away rights because of stupidity, people that smoke, drink, lousy diets, it has become a 'big brother' society.
