    This guy gets pulled over for drunk driving. He's taken to a holding tank to sober up then goes in front of a judge and told to go to AA meetings and loses his liscense for however long.

    After he gets his drivers liscense back, he decides to go out and get drunk again, gets pulled over and this time gets put on probation for for 3 years and loses his drivers liscense for 5 years.

    After about 6 months, this guy gets drunk again but since the courts didn't take his car away, he drives and hits another vehicle with a family of 5 coming back from the circus and kills them all. The drunk driver walks away from the accident with some cuts and bruises. He is put in jail for vehicular manslaughter, I don't know how long though.

    How do we stop this from happening?

    We should take all motorized vehicles away from every single person in the United States, that's how.

    I'm sure we could just pass a law that says you can't do it, and people will stop. If that doesn't work, we should ban alcohol.

    Mandatory jail for a second offense and confiscate the car just like they do in other drug offenses.

    In the case of this guy, he should be charged with murder.
