Lift all laws on drunk driving, give everyone a bottle of booze and a set of keys and let them get rid of each other!!!!! Why! Look at WRAL home page at the night life photos, everyone is holding bottles, glass eyed, looking stupid for all ( youth, teens and adults) to see and say this is ok to do because they are doing it. Makes me sick to see finger pointing when most all of ya are probably guilty of the problem the start with. And no I have never taken a drink or smoked dope to have fun in my 62 years. Must be a sad life to have to be high to have fun!!!

For some of the victims, this may appear to be a good law. But, if someone is going to drink and drive, knowing if they kill someone they'll get prison time, adding two or three more years won't stop em. I seriously doubt that those who would do this would even know the law existed. I agree we need stronger punishment for those driving without license and insurance. There a very good reason these folks don't have a license to drive.

How about getting tougher on teenagers that typically run in excess of 100 mph and also typically kill off several other teens. How about getting tougher on illegals that drive without insurance and licenses.

Great reporting. Lots of talk, very little fact. You report what the current (prior to Dec. 1) penalty is. You never say what it's going to increase to. As if anyone would want to know that anyway, right?
