Seems to me if they want drunk drivers, the wine trail on any weekend instead of the casino seems the smart thing to do. They KNOW all those cars are drinking and driving. Heck I've seen people pull over, throw up and drive to the next winery. HA! yet they do nothing. hmmmmm?

Here yea Here yea Samantha. My feelings exactly. People against them need to be involved in a DUI, be a victim, a witness, or someone trying to get help to the injured parties, often times babies, Moms, Dads, Grandparents on their way home from vacation, etc. etc. Friends who are dead, or who will never walk again who were once vibrant outgoing people, now just a shell of their former selves, watching a man somewhere in his 70's trying to get a baby out of a backseat car seat while the car is on fire, with another spraying a fire extinguisher all over him, the car and the baby, with the drunk driver STILL singing.
