The harms and losses caused by drunk driving are tragic. Think twice before getting behind the wheel of a car after you have been drinking. The price of a cab ride home is nothing compared to the price you will pay if you are involved in an accident while under the influence.
The cost is not only measured in dollars spent in and out of court, but also suffering. In this case, a serial DWI offender killed a 4 year-old boy and injured his then 10 year-old brother in a crash.
The man was sentenced to five years in prison for this incident, but has been involved in many drunk driving-related incidents since the early ’80s and has not held a valid driver’s license since 1993. Should he have got a tougher sentence?
