POV: ‘Charlotte’s Law,’ a road to safer highways

The bill has received the endorsement of Doris Aiken, President of R.I.D. (Remove Intoxicated Drivers), a well-regarded advocate for tougher drunk driving laws.

Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Is it any surprise that serial drunk and dangerous drivers continue to wreak havoc and carnage on our streets when the state enables them to keep getting their driver’s licenses again and again?

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a difficult illness to overcome and those that suffer from it deserve help but our concern and compassion for them can’t override our obligation to keep chronic drunk and dangerous drivers off our highways.

The message of this bill for serial drunk and dangerous drivers is clear: “three strikes and you’re out. You lose your driving privileges in New York State forever.”

So my sons 5 year death anniversary is on May 10th please help the DWI awareness and change the laws cause since his death there hasn't been a name put on the monument in Rensco but I am sure there is still many deaths in the area and the repeat offenders will keep happening if nothing changes. If things stay the same deaths will still keep happening and we all had a chance to change it. So vote for Charlotte's Law and make a difference
