See...the problem with drunk driving is the part where they are released from police HQ's after being charged with misdemeanors and/or DAT's ( desk appearance ticket) . Spend a little time in county lock up instead of being detained for a couple of hours and some might see the light.

Good Job CPD your still behind Sheriffs Patrol for DUI/DWI. Are you guys getting better at spotting these types or is it just that many more on the streets? Everywhere you look someone is getting caught. Again great job by all LEO's

Great job guys. Now if the state would get off its collective butts and pass more stringent laws for DUI. Like some "reat" jail time, even for first offenders and especially for those under the age of 21. License revocation/suspension doesn't work.

The current laws are strict enough; the problem is their are not any programs where you can get a ride home if you drank too much.
