I think the issue is that YOU cannot grasp the idea that, just because you trot out the dead child picture, does not mean we should suspend our rights. As has been pointed out, if you truly wanted to eliminate drunk driving, you would eliminate driving. That's the way to do it.
Yes, drunk driving is wrong. Let's get over that fact. The issue is, how do we prevent it? Taking away everyone's car because you are ACCUSED of drunk driving means that, once accused of a crime, you are assumed to be guilty. So, if you like that, we'll accuse you of child abuse, and you'll be prevented from seeing any of your family, and locked up, because 'innocent until proven guilty' no longer applies. To be accused is to be guilty. End of story, have a nice sleep on your steel bunk.
