    I;m guessing she was revoked for driving impaired, and now someone is badly injured for her "chosen" actions. Time for her to do some jail time so she can think about what a good decision is versus a bad one. Our legal system needs a shot in the arm, no deterrent for committing the same crime multiple times.
