They're still going to drive

Consider the underlying motivation for cruising and drinking among the young, which is generally not alcoholism, but seeking a mate. (Albeit a temporary mate, in most cases) No one is going to risk mega-dweeb/strike-out status by offerring, "Let's go back to my place - the bus will be along any minute." Remember, too, that most of those DUIs aren't college kids, but adults of all ages. There's no shortage of gray hair in the drunk tank. So let's be honest - it's not a lack of public transportation that causes our outrageously high DWI rate, it's the fact that North Carolina, like the rest of the country, has become a joke when it comes to drunk-driving laws. How about we take a look at generating revenue rather than blowing it on a bus they won't ride? How about we have a $5k fine on first offense DWI, with a license revokation for one year....or until the fine is paid in full?
