Besides being arrested, people guilt of DUI should be caned. I'll bet if we caned people for DUI, the problem would be reduced to near ZERO.

I think the DUI task force is an excellent idea and wonder if they will also enforce the traffic violators that speed, run redlights/stopsigns, tailgate, illegally make turns and don't yield to pedistrians in crosswalks.

A death is a death - some people don't need to drink to take a life. So where is the police - highway patrol, don't they have quota's, are there not enough, has the budget been cut!

Tired of the speeding in the residential neighborhoods of Mayberry!
