Hell yes the law needs to be tougher on drunks that drive! How about some non-negotiable sentences like this.
1st offense: Forfeit vehicle, loss of license for 18 months, fine of not less than $7,500 or more than $12,500.
Driving while privileges suspended for DUI: Forfeit vehicle, extend loss of driving privileges for 18 months, fine of not less than $10,000 or more than $15,000 ... three months in jail.
2nd offense (with a valid license): Forfeit vehicle, five years probation, loss of driving privileges for 5 years, fine of not less than $15,000 or more than $30,000. Mandatory alcohol monitor (convict pays for monitoring fees).
Consumption of any intoxicant while on DUI probation: Remainder of probation period served in custody. Suspension of driving privileges on hold until custodial sentence is served, fine of $10,000 - $15,000.
3rd conviction in a lifetime for DUI: Forfeit vehicle, driving privileges revoked for life, $30,000 fine, 18 months in jail, 10 years probation.
No negotiation, no plea bargain, no crap.
