Driver suspected of DUI crashes twice during traffic stop
Full story: Daily Breeze
Drunk is as drunk does.
As part of his punishment make him watch the video in front of his family when he gets out of jail. Good thing nobody was hurt.
“Quotes don't replace thinking”
Since: Aug 08
MSNBC just reported HB is considering posting names and faces of convicted DUIs. What about the bars that pour? A young person can go into a place like Shore in Long Beach, and being the designated driver for the night, order only non-alcoholic drinks. But Shore offers bottle service, which then gives the power to pour to any and all patrons, who in turn pour for their friends who may or may not know how much alcohol they are consuming. Once was a time when the drinking establishment was held responsible in part or in whole. But then came "free market" unregulated enterprise, and we don't want to interfere with the barkeep's ability to make money hand over fist selling entire bottles, now do we?
H.B. should be more concerned with their businesses who are encouraging binge drinking, if they truly want to prevent people from driving after consumption of alcohol. I suspect H.B. is working hand-in-glove with the bars. Seriously. There are more cops out at night prowling for DUIs than you see out on the streets during the day. Why? Could it be that DUIs net the City more revenue from those high DUI fines than, say, the growing numbers of people driving through stop signs?
This DUI incident is truly horrible. But should a DUI driver be shamed anymore than a person talking on their cell phone? I've personally witnessed two accidents this week relating to drivers talking on cell phones. Where do we draw the line at public flogging? And I'd ask the H.B. Chief of Police to post his own daughter's picture if this proposition passes.
