If the punishment or DWI was stiffer then we wouldn’t have as many drunks driving on the roads. Raleigh needs to wake up and deal with this problem.

If drinking and driving has become such a public nuisance then why do we set idly by and allow the state and the fed’s to promote and profit from it, it’s time for them both to get out of the alcohol business! Seems to me they are double dipping.
