THE CRIME OF DRIVING DRUNK MUST NOT MEAN MUCH TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. PERHAPS IF THEIR CAR WAS TAKEN AWAY AND RESOLD BY THE POLICE DEPT THAT CAUGHT THE DRUNK THEN MAYBE JUST MAYBE, THE DUI NUMBERS WOULD DROP.

Much of my family lives overseas and the laws in their country are much more strict about driving under the influence. They treat it as severely as we treat federal offenses. For that reason, there are a whole lot more cabs and a lot less tragedy. C'mon USA!
