I know celebrity drunk driving arrests have been all the rage for a couple years now, so perhaps its inevitable that vehicular homicides resulting from celebrity DUIs is now becoming an unfortunate trend.

It is truly a shame that drunk driving is repeatedly taken as an acceptable risk in our society. Can anyone remind me why we can’t permanently revoke licenses and impose stiff prison sentences for repeat offenders until they kill someone?
