Law and Order...........

I'm convinced that California's law enforcement agencies as well as most other states are in business to make money for the state. If justice is achieved; that's a bi-product. But when laws are passed that enable the authorities to fine you for "not" turning your headlights on when you turn your windshield wipers on; you know it's for the money. Why don't they pass a law making driving and talking on your cell phone illegal. Hell, I'd make it a capital offense.

I truly wonder how much of the punishment for DUI's is driven out the states inability to create a budget. I'm the first to say that reckless driving while drunk is irresponsible, dangerous and unacceptable; but the State of California is considering lowering the limit of the "breath-a-lizer" to .04 ppm. It's currently at .08ppm . Is this because people that drink a half a beer and go drive are killing people?

This holiday, don't get lit and get behind a wheel. Call a Taxi, or stay home. As a friend recently said to me (here in the Bay Area) I'd take a Taxi home from Tahoe, before I get behind a wheel after drinking. (He's a former DUI offender).
