Women and Drunk Driving

An alarming new story from MSNBC on women and drunk driving. Daily stories on drunk driving increase the possibility of impacting someone's life.

There seems to be an increase in drunk driving among women across the nation. Whether it's a small drink of wine or a couple of beers. Simply, don't drink and drive.

More Checkpoints are Bad News for Drunk Drivers

There should be more of these DUI checkpoints that can capture these drunk drivers and get them off the streets. Though sometimes it's a bit of a nuisance to have to slow down and show your drivers license, it's more than worth it.

Unfortunately there's not real numbers on how many lives these DUI checkpoints save but you can rest assure that they've saved plenty. We never know these days how our lives intersect. You just hope that you're never on the road with those that drink and drive.

Drive safe my friends. Much credit to the Delaware Police Force for setting these up.

Angels Pitcher Nick Adenhart - DUI Accident

Yet, another reason why you shouldn't be driving drunk. How tragic. When will people learn? Looks like the driver is going to be charged with murder and not manslaughter. This accident has made DUIs much more visible for the week. 

Hopefully it drives much more than awareness and drives action to make and enforce stricter laws around drunk driving offenses.

Kim Kardashian's Sis Gets DUI

Alright, if you don't know who Kim Kardashian is yet, it's probably good news. If you do, you might care that her sister was pulled over for a DUI.

Great example. Keep it up. More to read here

Kim Kardashian is pretty hot but that doesn't excuse her from drinking and driving. I hope she never gets caught up in any of this.

It seems like everyone is going crazy over this girl. She looks great but all she did was release a adult tape. I guess that's all you need to do to be a star these days.

Do you want Kim Kardashian on you iPhone?

Barkley Gets Jail Time For DUI

It looks like Charles Barkley will be getting jail time for his recent DUI.  He was sentenced to a maximium of ten days in jail. 

He'll also pay $2,000 dollars in dui costs. This isn't much for someone that is well off like Charles Barkley but the jail time and the publicity around this stop is something that will drive awareness around drunk driving, so that is a benefit.

Another Sports Star gets a DUI

Add another one to the list. This time it's an international soccer star. This shows that drunk driving is a worldwide problem. Most of the times, I enjoy seeing these sports stars getting pulled over for a DUI, but this is starting to get sad. 

Either these guys are just arrogant or just plain stupid. He'll probably get off with a slap on the wrist. We'll just be thankful no one was injured.

Worst Drunk Driving Holidays Are....

As the holidays come near at we visit our share of holiday parties, we have been known to have more than a drink or two. Holidays, unfortunately have been known to factor into higher drunk driving accidents as people tend to drink and drive more than usual. 

If you are attending any parties please don't drive drunk. So what are the holidays where we see an increase in drunk driving accidents?

New Years Eve
Labor Day
Memorial Day
Independance Day

You can read more here.I think it has to do with the holidays ending on a three day weekend. What are you thoughts? If you are going to go to any parties this weekend or during the holidays, please don't drink and drive.

Heather Locklear gets Drunk!

She should be ashamed. We have another actress that was arrested for driving under the influence. When will these people learn. It's dangerous and you might severely injure someone when driving impaired.

She's probably going to need help defending her dui case in court. I'm sure she has more than enough for a good defender and she won't likely end up like Paris Hilton.

With some many stars getting arrested for driving under the influence, it's hard to think that they are getting any special treatment. That's a good thing and publicizes the penalties of drunk driving.

Please, think before you drive while impaired.

Ignition Locks still act as deterrents for Drunk Driving

It looks like drunk drivers are having a bit of trouble with the key ignition locks. I agree that this is a good deterrent for those that have been drinking and are still trying to get in the car. Especially, if they have already fighting a current DUI. I also have an issue with the common sense aspect to this. If we have to put a lock on someone's ignition in order for them to drive drunk, this really goes beyond the issue doesn't it?

Ideally, you'd like to circumvent the issue itself. In this case it's the driver, not the car.

Boston Globe reports more on DUI ignition locks.

DUI Hollyood #1

Looks like Shia LeBeouf has been out drinking and driving.

10th DUI lands Lynwood man in prison

EVERETT, Wash. -- A 10th drunken driving conviction has landed a Lynnwood man a seven-year prison sentence. Apparently, this guy must think this is some sort of video game.

Snohomish County prosecutors say the rap sheet for 47-year-old Todd Olson also lists three convictions for hit-and-run and 14 for driving with a suspended license.
