    What is wrong with these idiots? They think they are above the law, and can put other lives at risk. No mercy: huge fines and real jail time. Plus confiscate the vehicle. And I don't wanna' here people wailing about the guy's poor family, blah, blah. If he cared about his family, he wouldn't drive impaired. If they cared about him, they would stop him.
