    Serious problem here, she needs to dry out before she ends up killing someone. Take her license away, now!!

    Bobbyj I'm also interested in the source you used for your stats. Would like to ready it and figure out how they came up with that number

    Not equal to*

    Bobyj I would argue speeding and distracted driving is also assault with a deadly weapon and cause more injuries and death. Why are the fines and punishment equal to DWI?

    Two DWI wrecks 8 months apart? Holy Moley! This lady needs to have her license pulled immediately, her car seized, serious jail time and no driver's license if/when she gets out.

    She's a repeat offender who is extremely dangerous.

    Average numbr of times yuo drive drunk prior to getting caught is 80 times. She is working on number 2. Times change and driving under the influence is assault with a deadly weapon in my opinion. Do some time in jail.

    Um, whoops? Two in 8 months? Can we, like, take her license, assuming this hasn't already been done?

    My late father in law was a county magistrate and alcoholic. The local police would either carry him home or follow him driving home every night from the bar. Can't let anything happen to the long time duly elected Democrat official who signs their warrants!!!

    she is not a cop so she will get convicted
