Mothers Against Drunk Driving have set their sights on Houston.

On Tuesday the organization and city leaders launched the “Take the Wheel” campaign.
It’s part of a new effort by MADD to focus outreach and anti-drunk driving effortson single problem areas.
Of the most populated counties in the United States, Harris County has the most drunk driving deaths per capita.

Get the @#$%^&* Illegal aliens out of the country would be a grant step in reducing the number of fatal auto crashes! Remember the illegal who rearended the couple on IH-10 with their small son and killed all three of them?

That would be a good start James!

Uhhhhh.. I think we’re actually talking about reducing the number of DRUNK DRIVING fatalities. A great place to start would be with all the ignornat bubba rednecks that drive around town in their pickups with a beer in their hand. Get a life! This isn’t an immigration issue!

I install breathylyzers in cars of DWI offenders. They come from all races, ages and sex. The majority are men and hispanic. Those who are ordered as a stipulation of their bond to have one installed come see me. Most with real attitudes as if it is my fault they are having to do this. As a woman and a mother, I applaud the use of these devices. I install them and monitor them. They are embarrased, some are angry, etc. The law now allows the courts to go back as far as they want to count prior DWI’s against them. I think more should be done. But how?. You take their licence and they still drive.

I think immigration is only part of this issue. The person who installs the breathylyzers just stated the majority are men and hispanic. However, take their license away and you are right, they still drive. Also, keep in mind that the installer installs these on those who are caught, God only knows how many are still out there driving, drinking, wrecking, and killing. Name calling will not help with this issue. Getting involved will.

I work for an insurance company evaluation accidents and examing vehicles after accidents. A high portion of them have beer bottles still inside when I go take pictures of the cars. I have lived in 3 of the 4 major cities in the US and here in Houston is worst when it comes to respecting traffic laws. Immigration status as it has been mentioned above…has nothing to do with it. Los Angeles has a greater number of immigrants than Houston (both legal and Illegal). Houston has a ‘get out of my way’ mentality, just look at all those idiots that exit freeways going over grassy areas…….. instead of waiting to get to the the actual exits.
