xanadian: He was taken to the Homer Jail.That must've been quite the odyssey.
Profedius: Driving without a license or maybe just those driving on a suspended license should result in the vehicle being seized as state property no matter who owns the vehicle unless they can prove it was stolen. What good does it do to suspend someone's license if they are going to drive anyway? DUIs down here drive without a license all the time.

You don't need a license to drive. You just need a car.
IlGreven: Driver's license didn't stop him? Time to outlaw driver's licenses!/Where in the Constitution does it even say they can regulate whether, what, and how I drive?
weiserfireman: IlGreven: Driver's license didn't stop him? Time to outlaw driver's licenses!/Where in the Constitution does it even say they can regulate whether, what, and how I drive?Where does it mention driving in the Constitution at all.Government doesn't regulate driving as long as you don't use Public roads. It's the whole Public property thing
RockofAges: While it's obvious that intoxicated driving is bad, mmkay, your authoritarian solutions aren't helping. People need to wake up and realize that the harder you attempt to legislate behaviour, the more star systems will slip between your fingers.
Kibbler: The reality of America: You can get arrested for weed in a lot of places and end up doing considerable time in jail ("you have two ounces, clearly you are a serious drug dealer"). You can rack up DUI after DUI after DUI and they keep on springing you after short sentences. Stories occur only too frequently of someone who has been convicted many times, and then he finally kills somebody. You would think people would be simply outraged and demand that people like this get hard jail time before they can kill somebody. But they don't. Serial offenders keep getting sprung, and it's not on our radar.First DUI? A hefty fine, a suspended license, and some really obnoxious "education" to drill it into your head that this has to be the last time. Second DUI? 6 months to a year, license suspended for five years after that. Third? Five to ten years, and no driver's license ever again. Fourth? Ten to twenty. Fifth? Thirty to life.And if you've had a DUI, then you kill somebody while driving drunk, life with no parole.On top of that, if you've had a DUI, and then you get pulled over shiat-faced drunk, blowing a 0.16 or something, then a very serious sentence. I wouldn't go easy on people who get arrested for 0.08, but I'd be even harsher on people who drive when they're so drunk they can't even stand.It ought to be made clear that, once you've had your first DUI, you have to make sure you never do it again, and if you're one of those fukitol people who don't care about consequences, then you can spend most of your life in a place where you can't kill somebody with a car.
