Should there be harsher penalties for drunken drivers with a higher blood-alcohol content?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 21, 2006
“No. I think if it’s over the legal limit you should get the same penalty as everyone else regardless of how high it is.”
“I suppose. If you’re really smashed it’s worse than someone who has had a couple and thinks they’re OK. They would be a lot more likely to get in an accident than someone who’s just a little tipsy.”
“No. Everyone should be charged the same, because people have different tolerances whether they have a high blood-alcohol content or not.”
“No. Driving drunk is driving drunk. I would actually be in favor of lowering the legal limit. I think driving while impaired is ridiculous.”
