Are you serious? Are you not over reacting a little?

It can be argued that just owning a car means you are a threat to somebody, including yourself, so shall we just hang all car owners? You are putting the cart before the horse are you not?

Justice in the Western world is based on punishing people who have committed crimes, not those that are capable of committing crimes. Might I suggest locking them away or confiscating their license and vehicle for driving while intoxicated is more than sufficient. But if they actually hurt or kill someone, well I guess we could set you on them.

But unfortunately there are very less examples of heavy punishment of drunk driving.

Drunk driving kills. I say permanent loss of license, confiscate the car, and a heavy fine on top of that.
I will disagree with you.

We already have laws to prosecute reckless driving. IMO, these laws are appropriate. They target the root problem (action that damages others).

Someone driving a car with a blood alcohol level of 0.1 who is not driving recklessly should not be prosecuted for (or ciminally liable for) DUI IMO. He has not hurt anyone.

See where your kind of thinking leads?

Obama has nominated Mothers Against Drunk Driving CEO Chuck Hurley to head up the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Hurley and MADD have a long history of manipulating data to support their policy initiatives. Last year, for example, I explained how a MADD report looking at DWI fatality statistics miraculously came to the conclusion that the numbers in each state–whether up, down, or unchanged–spoke to the urgent need to adopt MADD’s ignition interlock law. Hurley and MADD were at the heart of the effort to force the states to adopt the .08 minimum blood alcohol standard under penalty of withdrawing federal highway funds, and weren’t at all afraid to invoke dubious statistics to push their position. Hurley has aggressively pushed for the use of constitutionally-questionable roadblock sobriety checkpoints to enforce the new standard, even though there’s now good reason to believe the use of roadblocks have actually made the roads more dangerous. Don’t be at all surprised to see Hurley use his position at NHTSA to push for a federal interlock law as well. MADD’s goals are now NHTSA’s.

But Hurley isn’t just a zealot on alcohol. His default position seems to be in favor of more highway safety laws, more regulations, and more reasons to stop and fine motorists. Hurley has pushed states to adopt primary seat belt laws, which in addition to being a questionable use of law enforcement resources (people who don’t wear seat belts aren’t a threat to anyone other than themselves), have been criticized in some quarters for giving police officers another tool to engage in racial profiling, or as a pretext stop in asset forfeiture cases. Hurley has also supported the proliferation of red light cameras, despite studies showing they actually cause more accidents than they prevent.

At the Detroit Free Press, longtime automotive writer Eric Peters lays out what Hurley’s NHTSA agenda might look like:
…drivers can expect a ratcheting up of the low-grade harassment they already endure on a daily basis—in the form of more obnoxious regulations, pullover “safety” checks and very possibly lowered speed limits…

The legal standard for “drunk” driving has already been lowered to .08 BAC—a level well below the .10 and up level at which people have actual accidents as opposed to running afoul of “sobriety checkpoints.”

But even that isn’t enough. Under Hurley, MADD has been pushing to have the legal threshold reduced to .04 BAC, which would turn anyone who had a glass of wine over dinner into a “drunk driver” as far as the law was concerned—and subject them to penalties more severe than those applied to many violent felons…

As NHTSA head, expect him to push MADD’s current agenda as far as he can—including mandatory in-car alcohol detectors for everyone, not just those already convicted of DWI. And controversial “sobriety checkpoints” that stop random cars and subject their drivers to Gestapo-like stop and frisks are likely to sprout up in urban and suburban areas across the country.

Re: Punishment for drunk driving?

Due to the efforts of advocacy groups like MADD, the penalties and consequences of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and drugs have gotten much stiffer.

Basically, it's better to give them a big punishment as well as they must put in their minds not to drive when they are drunk.

I agree with you guys that the punishment for drunk driving is that the license must be canceled and the car must be confiscated.
