It was reported yesterday in several local newspapers that a individual with five previous convictions for driving under the influence was involved in another motor vehicle accident. Numerous people were injured and the above mentioned person had to be airlifted to a area hospital. This individual also refused a breathalyzer test at the scene of the accident which he apparantly caused...
Why is this guy even on the road after five convictions?
Is a "Abuser fee" of several thousand dollars appropriate in this situation?
If this person was confronted with a large fine after the first conviction could it have changed his actions before it got to this point?
What if this person could not have afforded the "Abuser Fee" that many have called unfair?
Would that make a difference to you if you were looking at this driver crossing into your lane and headed directly towards you?
