I don't disagree with you I think we need to elect people to ENACT stricter laws.
Judges and DA's do not enact legislation - they enforce and interpret previously enacted legislation - so if a message is to be sent it should be to the legislative side not the judiciary.

As for the methadone question I asked for a reason. I sympathize with the mother but a person with methadone in their system is not driving impaired - or are they? I thought Methadone did not have that affect. Its my understanding that they use his to get off drugs.I'm not naive I know that MOST folks don't succeed at that but to imply the driver was impaired without testing is wrong. It seems like the tests afterwards have raised questions about the drivers ability - with no basis for those questions.
This raises the legal question - can a trooper perform a breathalyzer, or an immediate blood test, on a driver if there are no other indications of impairment?
I've often wondered about that...
