So if they find out who assisted in starting the vehicle, does that person get charged, too?

What the f*ck is wrong people these days????? Take this idiot's license, cut it up and make him ride the bus, he should never drive again

Your first offense the license should get taken away for 2 yrs (min) and you have to start back at G1, Second offense gone for life! Make people actually think about their actions because 3-30days for some of these people is nothing... they'll drive anyways! What ever happened to friends don't let friends drink and drive!

@jean marie...i know what you mean! But... that should never be the saying...everyone is responsible for their own actions.
People take responsiblity for their own lives, friends shouldnt have to do that for them. My family and I dont drink and drive because WE know the consequences and WE know what the outcome may be...
Second offences license should be GONE.
