I'd maybe agree with you EXCEPT that on almost any day (take today, for example), you can check out the local MugShots & find yet ANOTHER perp charged with (1) speeding, (2) driving while impaired, and (DRUM ROLL, PLEASE) (3) habitual impaired driving. I gotta say, I don't really mind the federal government prodding NC to face its problem in this regard. In the past couple of weeks alone, we've had several local residents wiped off the face of the earth due to . . . HABITUAL IMPAIRED DRIVERS! If NC was doing IT'S job to stop these criminals before they kill somebody, and quit letting them out, and letting them out, and . . . well, you get the picture. So the good people of NC get shagged twice -- with habitual DWI criminals constantly being set free and now, penalized to the tune of $44.1 million taken from its general road and bridge construction budget. Maybe the $$$ would be better spent on highway safety improvements and anti-drunken-driving programs, but it's a shame for NC that we can't have safe roads AND the $44.1 million stay in the construction budget.
