I'm not a professional in this field only experienced. I only want to help with information, not instruct or advise.

What do you like about this subject?

It's more what I do not like about a crime that can shatter the lives of the offender and the victim uselessly.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Any and all new or updated information from any source that will in anyway reduced the pain and suffering and residual effects caused by diving while intoxicated.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Every 25 seconds there is an alcohol related automobile accident in the United States. This crime is the number one killer of people under the age of 21.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The seemingly disregard of our nationwide law makers regarding the harm caused by DWI and the lax penalties for this crime. If I had had much more sever consequences for my violations I would have gotten help for my alcohol problem.
