    81 deaths in 10 days. A feather in the cap for the cops. What more do you expect from bystanders in khaki on the roads. They are agile and athletic in pouncing on innocent motorists for their "something" but slow and blind when it comes to speed demons in buses and lorries. via DM iPad app

    Good point Kossa. And Public... Although, I understand your frustration I believe the court of law is quite significant in an issue such as this because most of our cops are liars. They can criticize and arrest innocent motorists for bribes. So it is necessary for the cops to PROVE that a motorist was drunk and for that we need to use the court of law. via DM Android App

    Good decision! To teach a lesson, cancel the driving licences of all drunken drivers. No need to refer them to the courts.
