Everyone pushing to get drunk drivers off the road..good but you are not looking at WHY. The state and federal government legalized alcohol which is the worse drug in the world..Worse than is legal so they can collect billions of dollars in taxes. Every death that occurrs is because of money! Make the State and Federal government pay for everyones alcohol addiction , not only treatment but after care..restitution to all the families who lost a family member because of alcohol. Pay for the people who became addicted to become productive..The little bit they do provide is for poor treatment and no good after care and if they have a job they dont help at all.which the cities and towns get back by fining the person..making them pay for ankle bracellets etc untill they are financially ruined so they cannot cope..The state and federal government are high level drug dealers. Its not these people faults that they become addicted or impaired enough to cause a death while is available on every corner in U.S...The people that consume this drug is not responsible for how they react to it..same as if dr gave 2 different people a narcotic..1 person can function the other one cant function at all..they are not responsible for how they react to a drug..BUT..the state and federal government can do something..take the money that they get off the taxes and get them in good for all aftercare for 2 years after for ankle bracelett..interlock..whatever it takes... and all funerals etc every financial dished out to them..Make these people whole again..then the abuses will stop. Grow up and put the blame where it belongs..on the drug dealers for alcohol.

Unfortuneately my entire life has been f-up by drunks.Mother,Father,all uncles,neighborhood I lived in,two husbands.There is no escape from these bastards who are told they have a disease.Our culture is set up to help all of the perpetrators,not their victims.I am mad as hell.Now I am permantly disabled with ptsd from being around so many of them.And these bastards get disability as well.They will get ALL they deserve according to the word of God.No drunkards shall enter the kingdom of heaven.They are not alcoholics,they are sinners who bow down to the false God of this world by worshiping a substance.

I want people to wake up from this BS life and start giving a damn about drink driving, too many people dying. Effing media sensationalize that which makes their masters rich but not caring about the ordinary folks and their ordinary lives.

Is it that hard to get a friend to drive you home if your drunk, high, or to distracted to drive?

Who died? In many of the cases the drunk driver survives. How many of the above were sober victims of Drunk Drivers, How many were the Drunks? Terrorists blow up bombs during their holidays, Drunks Drive in Cars. Dead is Dead.

Drunk drivers, if not stopped eventually WILL KILL or injure others and themselves. As one who has lived through it, you cannot imagine the pain of a family who has lost their loved one or has to watch them struggle through life with dibilitating injuries while the drunk drivers go on only to drive drunk again. Stricter laws for offenders. Take their license or require the breathalizer device that prevents them from starting the vehicle if they are not sober. It's simple but political pressures prevent these simple measures to be used nation wide. Wake up or you may not wake up one day.

Society has so many problems with additive behaviors. People have to want to live responsibly but if they choose to live irresponsibly, then they need to have severe consequences. Taking a driver license away does nothing! Legislation needs to get some backbone and start doing something! Jail with no bail on repeat offenders, checkpoints on major streets, interlocking device inside vehicle. Innocent people are dying bcause offenders kmow there is no stiff punishment.

You can control what is out of your control. Try prohibition again you know you want to. It wont work again. Your lying about your #'s you know that drunk driving rises every year regardless of what you do. you should find another cause.

Just wondering how do we fix the other 71% of the auto related fatalities? That's damn near 20,000 other ppl dead because of driving. Ban driving, go back to the horse as transportation. Or, eliminate ppl all together, that would probably go a long way in fixing any issue we have.

Look at that total killed by DUI and they want to ban certain guns. What is wrong with priorities in our country. It's like they want to just ignore MADD if at all possible. I'm a dad and I see this on the news almost every day in a near by city we work in and it makes me so mad. It's like baning other things will put a smoke screen over Drunk Driving.. They really make me sick not putting the laws we have in place. Our Government needs to be overhauled not the laws for the most part.

There is a special Federal Police force just dedicated to Guns, Alcohol, and Drugs. You know how large that task force is? the national force is just under 25k (Source: Colbert Report)
