Drunk drivers are so selfish. I am glad the cops caught this group before they killed innocent people. We need mandatory jail sentences for all DUI convictions.

Great job CHP. I am often the DD and I'm thankful to get these unsafe drivers off the road. They jeopardize the lives of so many people, especially during the holidays.

Now, if only the penalty for DUI was increased. These people have no business being behind the wheel of a powerful machine.
