Ultimate Fort Bend reports today about a marine who survived two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan to be killed by a drunk driver. He was home to help his father recover from injuries he suffered due to a drunk driver three months ago. It seems that every week there is a story about someone being killed or severely injured by a drunk driver. What do you believe would reduce drunk driving? Mandatory jail time for first offense? Increased fines?
I can not believe that he survived two tours in Iraq only to return home to have his life taken by a drunk driver. That is so sad. I will keep his family in my prayers. I truely believe that if the first offense was eye opening there would not be repeat offenders. The only was to ensure this is to change the consequences increase the fines, add jail time, attend AA classes, and install a breathilizer is all vehicles even a first offender. There is no excuse. It is still a life.
Effective. I agree.
