    • HereWeGoAgain on December 11, 2019 at 9:05 am

      As with many other stories, these people do not get jail time, they are made to go to classes where they make more drug friends and it just gets worse. The judges need to start locking their a$$s up! Oh wait then the jails will be so over crowded there will not be room for anyone. Something needs to be done before one of our family members are killed are hurt by an impaired driver.

      Doesn’t matter if they take her license, she was driving on a suspended out of state one anyway. She doesn’t care. Judges keep letting them go…until they kill someone.

    Lobby for change …
    Nationally , state punishment for these types of incidents
    are not strict or severe enough to deter drunk ./drugged drivers

    I propose sweeping new legislation applied to all states”:

    Get caught drunk or drugged driving : Automatic 50 years prison
    Kill while drunk or drugged driving : Death penalty

    NO paroles , no early out for good behavior, no Presidential or Governor pardons>
    Will this stop all drunk or drugged drivers 100%
    But it will impact the statistics and will save more innocent lives than the laws we presently have .
    Marylands’ Noahs’ Law does help but still does not send a strong enough message to deter , this is why we must impose the death penalty .

    Our punishment system has severe flaws when a drunk driver can kill and only receive a punishment of 5 ,,, 7 or 10 years in prison for the death of 1 person .

    Lobby for change …

    It does not matter that her license could be taken away because people like this drive anyway, license or no license. One thing that may stop or at least make people think is if you are caught driving without a license, the vehicle should be impounded and put up for sale at auction. As it is now, they simply get another ticket and or fine and keep on keeping on. I guess it won’t sink in until someone with the ability to make a difference has someone killed or injured by a driver on a suspended/ revoked license or impaired past the point of safety.

  14. Baud9600 on December 11, 2019 at 10:53 am

    I sure hope her next “run in” is a t-boning of the judge (who lets her out of jail) while he is going home. No harm wanted to anyone, but a good t-boning might wake “your honor” up to the dangers of letting these people out on the street. This driver shows they have no regard for the law and continues to violate the law while putting everyone else at risk. The judge saying “don’t do it anymore” is not working.

      It is a Guy Wire you ignorant imbecile!

      A guy-wire, guy-line, or guy-rope, also known as simply a guy, is a tensioned cable designed to add stability to a free-standing structure. They are used commonly in ship masts, radio masts, wind turbines, utility poles, fire service extension ladders used in church raises and tents.

        Guy wire has many names. It is also known as guyed wire, guy cable, guy strand and guy anchors. People also (mistakenly) call it guide wire. The name guy wire is derived from the term guy: defined as a rope, cord or cable used to steady, guide or secure something
