Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has apparently lost their ever-loving minds and wants to eventually place a breathalyzer in every vehicle.
They obviously don't understand the concept of, "Innocent until proven guilty."
Hey MADD! Driving drunk is NOT a crime! Causing damage to others is. You kill someone; you go to jail for a LONG time (not this cheesy 3 years for Manslaughter). You run over someone's building, you replace it, fix it, and generally make it all better to include payments for loss of use of the building.
I'd rage on about the loss of our civil rights, but Homeland Stupidity has already done a fine job of it.
Lew Rockwell's article Legalize Drunk Driving back in 2000 also does a wonderful job of articulating my position.
For further debunking of MADD, see:
Responsibility In DUI Laws: They have a nice article where they show that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does not collect information to determine the actual cause of the crash or the fatality. Which if you piece that little factoid together, you realize they can't, without out right lying, provide numbers for "alcohol-related" accidents. Articles: NHTSA admits their data is misinterpreted and The truth? NEVER !.
