rather than lowering the level to a ridiculous limit how about getting stronger penalties for convictions. somebody who gets more than two or three dui convictions shouldn't be behind the wheel, they should be behind bars.

Another idea to find a way to create a scenario where a citizen can be stopped, arrested, charged, and then made to pay a fine or fee to resolve the situation.
Just a new source of tax revenue for the state, county, city officials to add to the coffers.

Drunken behavior of any kind should be decriminalized. The rights of the people to be stoned shall not be abridged!

It doesn't matter, because the drunks will continue driving anyway. Our police can't even enforce the current law because of so many abusers and judges continue releasing for good behavior or house arrest because there are no jail cells available.

I know of one youngster who lost her license to drunk driving and called her boyfriend to pick her up from jail and her boyfriend was pulled over and arrested for drunk driving on his way to pick her up.

These "kids" can't even afford to pay their fines, but find the money for drinking every night. Its really sad that our younger generation is degenerating before our eyes, with no desire to change, and no comprehension of their future.
