      Driving under the influence aka DUI means under the influence of a drug; alcohol is a drug so is THC in marijuana. Anything that messes with your central nervous system and judgment is illegal when driving and just common sense.

    Can't fix stupid....Quiet a statement in dealing with a very serious problem. If you follow the news PEI has Impaired Drivers ranging from teens to people in their eighties. We have the strictest penalities than most Provinces. This is hard to believe. I would not want to venture on how many Impaired Drivers we are missing as 99% of every social function today has liquor servered. The amount of people doing pot and other drugs, plus presription meds and combining them is staggering to say the least. If you follow the stats repeat offenders are high as well recently alot of female drivers are being caught. The fact this lady was not served and the Police were called was the proper thing to do. Problem is not everyone will call the Police in a similar situation. These clubs are notorious for letting people leave drunk or Impaired ,as all they see if the almighty dollar in trying to run a business. Calling people stupid is wrong, this does little for helping someone with a drinking problem. Alot of well to do people unfortunetly make mistakes and get stopped Impaired, not drunk, but over the limit. I make no execuses, they broke the law and will pay the price, byt they are far from being stupid people. Maybe you a just that one guy who has never made a mistake and never will.

    Penalties will deter some! Lets not lose sight of the FACT that some of these people have an illness for which they need MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL HELP!

      Dan I welcome the challenge of intellectual debate but you do not appear to comprehend my first post. Fact: Alcoholism is a DISEASE. Fact: in my first post I stated that Penalties would work for some ( Need this explained?)

    You can't fix stupid. Congradulations to the person who reported this accident before it happened, and the police for their work.

    Nothing will change on pei until stiffer, harsher sentences get imposed. The judges that hand out those sentences need to get serious about stopping this preventable crime. The police, general public, and lawyers all know that if you get Nancy Orr your getting the book, which is how it should be. If you get Douglas, you get off with a slap and litter pickup on a Sunday afternoon.
