The point is change our attitude of this as acceptable behavior...if we lost nearly 10,000 Americans annually for any other reason it absolutely would not be tolerated. (I was wrong on quoting 20,000 earlier)

I think everyone can agree that we would be better off if our attitude towards drinking under the influence were more strict....but I think your solution is disjointed. Harsher penalties aren't going to solve anything....and will simply add to our taxpayers dollars and further overcrowd our ridiculous penal system. Prevention will save far more lives IMO.
