A 1-year licence suspension for drunk driving is perfectly fair. In many US states, you would have gone to jail for the first offence. Some states don't even bother with an ignition interlock, they just confiscate your vehicle. You call this a police state? Try drunk driving in a place like Saudi Arabia and watch what happens. What happened to you with your drunk driving conviction is the same as for any other first-time drunk driver in Ontario.

Now, if we really were "losers," you wouldn't really feel the need to come back and continue responding, would you? You can brag about how much money you have, but none of us care. Even if money was the only thing that mattered in life, there's no way to verify it anyway, so it's just another anonymous rant on the internet. It's a pissing contest most people would've left behind in high school.

You knew how much you drank before you got in your car. The car would still be in the same spot, with the same amount of gas, and the gas station the same distance away, had you waited until you were sober. That was your choice. No one forced you to drive. You did have a certain amount of help given to you here, that is, until you started lashing out at the justice system and the police and everybody else.

"Ignorant" - lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.

PS I just thought I'd mention that even though I don't currently own an overpriced car, I sure do enjoy being able to drive the car I have! :lol:

Hey

Drinking and driving is a social disease and a terrible crime. It is unacceptable and there is no excuse for it. What if you put a bullet on someone's head and then go about saying that you never touch a gun before and that you didn't mean it.

Do the crime, do the time.

And what does a flashy car have anything to do with drinking and driving?

Actually it could have been worst. A police officer recently got a 15-month driving suspension and $1,500 fine.

Now she is facing charges of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act and, if found guilty, she may be subject to an increased penalty of demotion or dismissal.

And yes; you got a pretty rotten deal. In cases like yours -if what you say is true- a good lawyer would have negotiated a careless driving charge. But then again, maybe your lawyer was jealous about your beautiful car too and hence the result. :wink:

Cheers.
