That is so sad. I am glad the child is back in school. I think that zero tolerance driving laws are required.
Having laws on the books that have zero tolerance DUI or zero tolerance drinking laws is required to keep people safe.
People should lose their license the first time they are found driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They not only endanger their lives, but the lives of others as well.
In 2002, over 40,000 people died in a car accident and about 40% of these cases were alcohol related. This is why states have toughened up on these zero tolerance laws because many people become overconfident when they drink and do not understand how they are actually impaired until it is too late.
There was a case of a mother who had five children with her, four of which were her own children and ended up killing everyone in the car including herself because she was driving under the influence of drugs. This is why people like this should have never been given a driver’s license.
