I got a DUI about a year and a half ago in WA state. I completely support this. It was too easy to just drop your license for a year. Let's be
real about this, cops don't want to charge you with a DUI. It's a pain in the ass, but if you get popped it's worth it because the majority of
people that get caught go on to do it again, and the majority of fatalities are caused by drunk drivers.
If you refuse everything, you shouldn't get a free pass. It's been pointed out up thread that driving is not a right, but a privilege. Someone who
has just endangered everyone else on the road and themselves should be charged with something, and should be held accountable.
I was really lucky. I didn't kill anyone. I got a day in jail, a huge fine, and my car insurance is now $400 a month.
The cop that arrested me drove me home, and on the way asked me what I would do if the curb I hit had been his daughters. That's what got me. If I
f____d up and hit a child, that's what really got me. It still does.
I love you guys, don't drive drunk. Sorry I got off topic.
