A few months ago, there was a controversy regarding DUI roadblocks in Payson. Now, with great regret, we learn of a family killed by a drunk driver. This should squash any naysayers from trying to prevent the police from catching these lowlifes who take the lives of the innocent.
New York State lowered DUI to .08 and driving while impaired to .05, so this driver would have still been legally drunk (in New York).
Let's continue to work to prevent these vipers from slithering on our roadways, especially at this time of year.
