This article is why I have ZERO tolerance for drunk driving. There will never be an excuse, IMO, to drive drunk. Ever. My blood is boiling over this.
"Gallo (the drunk driver) has a history of arrests for driving under the influence. While withholding specifics, Hamilton said his blood-alcohol reading was above the minimum. The officer also said Gallo was driving with a license suspended due to his DUI infractions." (pulled from this article)
The legal system makes is entirely too easy to buy your way out of a DUI charge these days and it is totally, 1oo% unacceptable. The drunk driver in this case had multiple DUI/drunk in public charges prior to this incident. WHY was he back out on the streets? This makes no sense to me at all.
You drive drunk, you lose your license for a substantial amount of time.. No second chances, no "I didn't know I was drunk" BS. You lose your license. Simple as that.
Innocent people dying because someone was too irresponsible to find alternate transportation is unacceptable.
This message brought to you by someone whose own brother has a DUI charge pending against him at the moment. The same rules should apply to him.
