Drivers need to obey the laws

If drivers would obey the laws put in place, no one would be happier than the parents or families who have lost a loved one

Re: Critique of my letter Jan. 16, 2013 by R. Waters.

Obviously Mr. Waters has not been listening to the news lately. That is where I got my information from that B.C. has more drinkers than any other province.

As past president of MADD, I would like him to know it’s taken over 30 years to get these changes in place. If you wish to drink, that is your right, but it’s my right to know you will not be drinking and driving.

No one is prohibiting you, just obey the laws. How about you write a letter to your MLA Rich Coleman and demand higher fines for those who drink and drive.

If drivers would obey the laws put in place, no one would be happier than the parents or families who have lost a loved one because some jerk needs booze every hour of every day then drives and kills.
