    When will they ever learn…..

    When a substance abuser (alcohol, heroin, or the like) cares so little about the law that he drives under the influence, making it illegal for him to drive (suspending his license) will NOT cause him to care enough about the law when under the influence, to stop hiim from driving. The problem is his access to alcohol, etc., not his license to drive!

    Come on, government. Don’t just DOCUMENT that you have done something about it. Actually DO something about it!
