    Simple solution — public hanging.

  3. Anthony says:

    People drive while intoxicated because it’s difficult to have a designated driver as a chauffeur or chaperone. Drunks don’t usually hang out with teetotalers.

    There will never be an end to DWI incidents, because people like to consume alcohol and they ignore motor vehicle laws.

  4. Carlos Liriano says:

    you are right, why blame the bars, maybe he was drinking in somebody house or somewhere else, check where he was coming from before you run your mouth

  5. FJL says:

    Hold bar owners and anyone who supplies the drinks liable, at least civilly
