@Cupcake15 - I do think that states are getting tougher especially with repeat offenders. The state of Florida is introducing a bill that would require people charged with DWI to have a breathalyzer mechanism that is linked to the ignition of the car so if the driver is impaired then they will not be able to operate their car.
These machines would have to be purchased by the person convicted of a DWI and many of these machines run about $1,500. Some people think that these repeat offenders will just use another car and go around it that way. There is a lot of controversy, but at least the state is trying to make it harder and harder for people to continue to doing this.
