    I never feel sorry for them. I wish the punishment were a lot harder than they are now.

    It is so simple if you drink than don't drive.

    How can anyone feel sorry for someone who is attempting to murder others? That is what drink driving is. It's like someone grabbing a gun and randomly firing it. It may or may not kill someone, but the likelyhood of someone being killed is high.

    If you have no other way of getting somewhere, then sleep in your car. You're a fu.cking idiot if you think that having no other way to get home is an excuse.

    No sympathy here either.

    I'm surprised though, a while back there was a thread about a drunk pregnant woman driving who got a lot of sympathy and excuses made for her?

    The same as people who txt, talk on the phone and drive whilst massively sleep deprived... These people are also putting themselves and others at risk.

    None.

    But the law on drink driving is a joke.

    Take people's cars away sell them and the profit goes to the police force.
    Bet drink driving rates would drop over night.

    No sympathy.

    I know in NZ on your third strike it means jail time.

    That didn't apply to the 86 year old woman who ploughed off the road, into my stepfathers car, glanced off and narrowly missed a group of primary children walking on the footpath(this was 3.10pm) who were terrified.

    Mum came running out, thinking she'd swerved to miss a pet and lost control (it's a 30km/h zone), opened her car door and said the smell of whisky was overwhelming. She even had an open bottle in the car.

    She was well known to police, doesn't have a licence, but is too old to go to jail.

    Obviously she's an alcoholic, but that's not excuse enough for getting behind the wheel. I just don't know what you do with people like this?

    Eleven and half years ago my then DH chose to drive drunk, wrapping himself around a tree and killing himself. Leaving behind a 3 year old to grow up without a dad and me.

    He was driving my car so now I have a refused claim for drink driving on my insurance record that will never go away and I lost my $12,000 car which at was a huge financial loss in addition to everything else.

    So no sympathy at all, especially for repeat offenders. Drink driving is no joke and the ramifications of it extend beyond the driver, I know as I live every day with the consequences of his dumb *** decision.

    I am
