    This is where the vehicle should be permanently taken away, and also with 2 counts of driver disqualified, no more licence! When will some drunk drivers learn?

    I think the question should be “When will WE ever learn?” Besides the usual penalties, why don’t we confiscate drunk drivers vehicles permanently for the first offence? Second offence means 2 years jailtime and third offence means a minimum of 10 years in jail! You can extrapolate from thereon.
