Drunk drivers belong in prison

I’ve come up with a way to truly punish drunk drivers. I think it will work.

It goes something like this.

Upon being pulled over and failing the field sobriety tests, drivers are given breathalyzer tests. If they fail the breathalyzer test, they are immediately transported to a hospital, where blood is drawn and sent to two separate labs.

If the lab reports come back and the driver was impaired, straight to jail. Period. No bail. Held until trial.

If found guilty, five years in jail for the first offense.

Do it again, and get found guilty again? Twenty years.

Third conviction? Life. No possibility of parole.

I fail to see why driving drunk isn’t treated the same as attempted manslaughter.

Drunk drivers deserve to be behind bars for a very long time.

I have a story for you if you want to try to convince me otherwise.

    No way am I going to try and convince you otherwise, but would still love the story … :-)
