The following web page gives some interesting information on Drunk Driving Deaths.

All 16000 of them in 2005.

http://www.alcoholalert.com/drunk-driving-statistics.html

I'll stop there as my feelings about what should be done to drunk drivers would not be appropriate material for this board.

I'm guessing they are the same as mine.  I'm only 23, and i all ready know 5 people who would have been around my age who are dead because of drinking and driving.  Penalties could stand to be a bit stiffer as far as i am concerned.

I to was hit by a drunk driver in '96 while on my street bike.  My left arm was broke in 4 places and will never be the same.  My earlier post was not condoning what he did.

I was wondering how long it would be before someone posted about this when I saw it this morning.

So who's Lindsey Leard?
 

Some of the people in CMRA are going to bitch whine, complain and find any way they can to get digs in towards CCS. Just the way the same bunch whined and bitched about RPM/WERA.

As for it being easier to get a DUI today?  LOL!  Has there been a design change in the delivery system or the sump that collects the beverage in question?
It's easier because the days when you or I would get a stern lecture and then told to drive straight home are long gone. Too much of a liability nowadays, so you get arrested.

Oh well.........

Also the limit used to .1 in most states thay has been lowered to .08 which is questionable qas to how impaired you really are at that point. I will bet that a lot of racers on here have driven all night to get home from races with no sleep, guess what, you are driving impaired, but there just is no way to measure it. I am not condoning driving drunk, just bringing up some points.

You can be cited for not being able to maintain control of your vehicle (being tired, emotionally distraught etc.)
I live in a state that contributes to more than 10% of the DUI or DWI deaths.
In this state, it can not be more of a clear message that if you operate any motor vehicle on a public hi way or road; and are caught, you will 1) be subject to an FST or be arrested for suspicion of DWI, 2) lose your license(s) for a period no less than six months, 3) spend 24-36 hours in our fine incarceration system, 4) and if found guilty, that is after paying an attorney to represent you, pay restitution to the State (about $6000.00), 5) attend AA classes, 6) the final straw; deal with our insurance companies to obtain an SR 21 to become insurable again.
Pretty clear as to what not to do here. Similar in your states?

Why put yourself in this situation to begin with, it's what you'd be asking yourself after this type of ordeal :spank: :wtf:

I'd much rather spend my $14k or so on racing another year :thumb:

Some of the laws may be to much to explain other than revenue.
  In 04 or 05 they changed to .08 in IL. the day they changed that my Friend was pulled over and blew .08 he received the DUI. One day earlier and he would have been legal.
Maybe they weren't making enough money @.1
 Besides the law makes it legal to sell liqueur ,cars ,guns ,on the same corner ,but you can't drive home from bar carrying a gun WTF.

I don't agree with drunk driving either, but I have a friend who had 3 beers at dinner over the course of 2.5 or 3 hours and was pulled over after leaving the bar/restaurant.  She happens to weigh about 110 pounds, so she blew over the .08 limit and was charged.  She was in no way drunk.  And was pulled over by a State Trooper who sits outside that bar and pulls over young girls that have been inside.  He pulled over another friend about 2 weeks later and charged her with a DUI as well.  She only blew a .06 with the road side breathalizer and was taken to the police station and charged anyway.

I think there should be a higher BAC level (more in the range of .1) and stiffer penalties for those that blow over that limit.

DUI also gets a reckless driving in the state of NJ
but to charge someone with DUI is also up to the officer it they show impairment without blowing the .08 he has the right to charge them while driving impaired.
as far as body weight of 110 pounds and 3 beers over 3 hours it is highly unlikely that they would blow a .08.  the average person  one drink per hour (+ -) if your friend had 3 beers in 3 hours after the 3rd hour it would be equal to about 1 beer in her system. which kinda sucks if she was .08
i don't think they lowered it to .08 for money reasons. like i said they can charge you even if your blood alcohol content inst at .10.
they can also not charge you and have you get a ride home instead.

For me personally, it was never a whine or bitch.
RPM was started due to a crybaby not wanting to turn Expert.
CCS South was started due to a crybaby not wanting to turn Expert.

I never whined about it, but I wonder why some people would want to be associated w/ that type of wanker.

Facts are Facts and R. T. Marshall worked CCS for a novice title. Yea he was within the rules, but it still seems shady to me. Then he goes and starts his own CCS series!?!?!?! He's a first year "expert", now he can run CCS-S?

Oh, to stay on topic, I see nothing wrong w/ RRW writing about it. But, I don't think it shoulda been sent to them either.  I think this has little if anything to do w/ his racing/running CCS-S. I kinda feel sorry for the guy as far as thats concerned.

  Yeah, it's kinda pointless to complain about a broken system that only feeds more $$$ to municipalities, w/o actually addressing the problems. Until the penalties are into the $5000-$10,000 with immediate license revocation for life, drunks will still drive drunk and kill people. After that they'll STILL be driving drunk.

  Why is this a topic in Racing section? Beacause JU put  it on his site?
