    when is this society going to crack down on drunk drivers. Instead of laughingly joke about having a DRINK after work and promoting alcohol! It is no different than any other drug and users who abuse it, should have their license taken away PERMANENTLY. Whiskey plates don’t work. It is a badge of honor rather than an embarrassment.

    Let’s wake up!!!!!!!
