    Why don’t you do something about??? instead of handing out a stupid fine first offense for a drunk drivers should lose their license for six months and spend 30 days in jail. End of story. The police need to be held accountable for all these repeat offenders that go out and kill somebody. They are not enforcing the law to protect the public it’s a joke
