There really should be a legal alternative to alcohol that won't cause so must risk to the public. The drunks killing people on the road, the violent altercations happening every weekend, the endless deaths and the endless pain happening in homes across the country.
There really should be a legal alternative to alcohol. It won't stop the suffering entirely, but it might reduce it.

So many drunk drivers endangering the innocent public means that penalties are not high enough. We need mandatory jail sentences after the first conviction.

It would pay to have more information at our disposal than we typically get from a Weekly article. The following is 2010 stats for California, relative to alcohol-related accidents--
FACT SHEET/Driving-Under-The-Influence (DUI) Statistics 2010:
Time-of-day when the accidents occurred is not provided. Neither do these stats offer any insight into the deaths/injuries of driver/passengers for the car causing the accident vs other parties involved in these accidents. The stats provided at this link suggest a goodly number of accidents involve motorcycles, reducing the probable number of "innocent" people involved.
It's a real shame we can't get decent reporting in this town.
