I know in some states drunk driving laws and punishments are stricter than others. For example, when I lived in AZ, the law was that if your blood alcohol content was above a certain number, you almost automatically got a week or two of jail time. I personally think this is fair. However,I had friends who actually got lawyers to avoid jail time, and succeeded. Do you think jail time should be mandatory, regardless of legal help? Is that too much of a punishment? Are the laws too strict, or too lenient?As someone who has lost 3 friends to 3 separate drunk drivers, I'm for harsher punishment than some states give out. If my child got a DUI, I would make them serve the jail time to learn their lesson and that it's selfish to risk others' lives for their pleasure and irresponsibility. What is your opinion?

WAYYYY too lenient!
1st offense should be mandatory 30 days in jail and your liscense suspended for a minimum of 1 year and 100 hours of community service to be completed within 6 months, and a fine equal to the cost of 30 days in jail.
2 offense, liscense suspended permanently, and a minimum of 1 year in jail, with fines equal to the ammount of money that you costed tax payers for your one year in jail and court fees.

If they caused an accident where there were injuries sustained, or they killed someone, they should be criminally convicted and then civilly sued
