Some new laws just went into effect here in Louisiana. One of them is that when a person gets arrested for a DWI the only way they can get a hardship lic. (Limited use) is to have a interlock device installed on the vehicle they drive.

There are more things also on conviction. They made all of the convictions (1st, 2cond, 3rd etc) have stronger sentances.

The real ticker is that it takes a L O N G time to go through everything and get the conviction. On average my arrests have taken around a year to go through the system. One took over two years. (And a LOT of court appearences)

I arrested one fella with one conviction and two outstanding DUI arrests. (Was still on probation for the first one) All I could charge him with is a second offence due to his not being convicted on the other two yet. THAT is what smokes ya......

What gets me mad is the repeat drivers without a license constantly getting stopped by State Police friend, they get $100 fine and are back on road again. They never had a license to begin with and if they had its false ID.
They always get stopped because of no inspection sticker, speeding, weaving in and out of traffic how dumb can they get they just don't give a darn. We are the ones that have to watch out for them to stay safe.

Check out the following web site for John's Law.
www.herocampaign.org Covers designated drivers, adopted federally and is in the Transportation Dept. budget.

Named after Ensign John Elliott who was killed by a drunk driver on US RT 40 in southern NJ.

More Importantly -
If you are ever in any type of auto accident -GO TO THE HOSPITAL... If you don't go at the time of the accident - they will put in the report "no injuries" and it makes it that much easier for the drunks to get off "scott free".
My accident happened late in the evening - and I just wanted to get home - It doesn't matter that I was off work for 18 months from my injuries - the guy who blew a .22 & a .23 on the breathalizer walked away with a minimal fine ...and a big smile on his face ...
(Can you tell I still have issues with this guy! )

Actually, if I had been in an accident involving a drunk, and was still able to move afterward, the bugger probably would have been in the hospital himself after the whooping I would have delivered him.

In a listing published by the American Bartenders Association they mentioned two rather severe punishments that both seem to work very well at stopping repeat offences although one is excessively cruel. In Turkey if you are married they drive the drunk, their spouse and their mother-in-law 25 miles out of town and make them all walk back together and in Russia(China?) it is the death penalty. They both work but Turkeys punishment seems to be a bit too harsh.
