Laws against drinking drivers still not tough enough

Reader says province should get even tougher on people who drink and drive

Again and again, we see teens expressing their sadness at losing a friend because of someone drinking and driving. There is always piles of flowers to express their grief at the site and lots of nice words about the one killed. But is it not time they learned you cannot drink and drive?

It is hard to fathom why the province continues to make drinking and driving easier to do.

Fines need to be harsher. Instead, it’s only a slap on the wrist. The public will never learn, unless this government gets tough with drinking drivers every day of the week. Very few drinking drivers are getting the message.

Stop drinking drivers with tougher laws.
