Dear Sirs;

Drunk driving is not an accident.  The individual makes the conscientious decision to get behind the wheel of a car, turn the ignition on, and drive to a place to imbibe alcoholic beverages.

Once there he makes the conscientious decision to drink too much.  He knew that he was driving and that he was going to get back into his vehicle to drive impaired.

This individual knew what he intended to do.  He also knew that there would be a high probability of having an accident.

Drunk driving needs to be considered the crime that it is. 

Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for their actions.

Letting a drunk driver off with a slap on the wrist is a travesty!  Drunk drivers are a serious threat to society and need to be held accountable. 

A car should be considered a deadly weapon because it is. Driving impaired should be no different from any other crime where an individual uses a deadly weapon to cause an individualís death.

For the protection of society Ricky Carter needs to stay where he is!
