    After reading 3 pages of peoples opinions of the accident was god to read this post as i have now settled down a bit.:thumbsup:
    This is such a sad thing to happen and with having a small child myself i really feel for the mother and father in this mess.Dont worry he will get his sentence and no doubt do it hard,athough i dont think bubba will be there as he will be going to a real prison not one in a movie.
    Nobody like a kid killer.

    Not necessarily. Manslaughter usually gets off pretty light as there's no real intent to kill.

    In Victoria (not sure about other states) the specific offence is Culpable Driving. It is almost equal to murder, more equal to manslaughter, but with a car. Anyone convicted of culpable pretty much always ends up getting prison time.

    The problem is DUI laws are too soft !!! Idiots still take the risk !!!

    People caught DUI should get a mandatory 12 months in jail !!!

    Second time they get caught their car gets compacted and jail time doubles!!!

    my 2c !!!

    Thats still too soft.


    First offence, 1 year.

    2nd offence, 20 years. See how many people run the risk with those consequences

    I have to say I don't think it matters who did what it comes down to human decency! you cause or whitness and accident I think it is only fitting to stay to help or make sure people are ok, going to sound like I should have been borne in the 60's but why is there not more love in the world? and why the F@#k do people have to be so angry when they drive?

    0.15 BAC...that's all the details you need to know right there.
    ...he is awfully lucky it wasn't my kid and I wasn't the one who caught him...he wouldn't have to worry about going to court and I know I wouldn't find a jury who'd convict me....:devil:

    My thoughtsw on drunk driving have always been the same...
    First off, do away with work licences...you lose your licence, you have to learn your lesson...I know plenty of idiots who continue to drive like idiots on work licences. Back to drunk driving:
    First offence: $2000 fine and 12 months total suspension...everyone is allowed one mistake I suppose.
    Second offence: $5000 fine and absolute loss of licence...no work licence, no possibility of getting any sort of licence ever again. Too bad if you need your licence to work...You should have learned the first time.
    Third offence (if you are that stupid): $10,000 fine, six months jail minimum, and confiscation of whatever vehicle you are driving at the time (no matter who owns it), with a $10,000 bond to get it back.
    And as for driving on a suspended licence resulting from any the above, see "Third offence"...same things again.
    Stiff **** if you don't like it, don't drink drive.

    Those penalties would only effect people without money. Rich people break the law aswell. And as such, something they can't buy needs to be implemented. Their freedom taken away is the only way they'll learn.

    On top of that, there should be a 0.00 BAC for ALL drivers.
