  1. Tje consequences of impaired are not yet invasive enough to teach the stupid and self centred.
    Money is one thing with fines.
    Jail time is non existent bc the cells are full of the same trash.
    What is needed are forfeitures of the vehicles and licenses for extended times.
    Any loser who drives impaired as far as I am concerns is driving with the intent to commit murder.
