  • Hope this kid learns a lesson! An expensive one to boot! Years ago I worked for a psychologist and she dealt with addiction issues. One of her clients told me it had cost him over $3,000 for fines, fees, installation of a breathalyser in his car (it registered everything above zero, even if it had been consumed hours before). By the time he had finished his sentence for his THIRD DUI! it had cost upwards of $7,000 (he had to pay out of pocket for seeing my boss at $200/hour!)
    Of all the things one should learn really young the main one is to NOT to drink/do drugs while driving. Especially not now where the punishment is severe!
