This is whats left of the car that my nephew David Shelton was driving, returning home from work on Friday December 07 , when a 22 yr old female, who decided to drink and drive. Avoiding a DUI Road Stop she decided to turn around her vehicle and head East in the West Bound lane. Within minutes of this poor decision she impacted Davids car head on. With the mighty hand of God over him, David survived this horrendous collision. He has suffered mutiple breaks to his body. His left arm is broken to two places, his left leg broken two places and his right knee has been dislocated. Davids rehabilitation will be lenghty but he is a "Miracle" according to the police and paramedics who were on scene. This was the second DUI this young lady has had, but the second nearly cost our family a loved one. She will be charged with felony DUI this time and hopefully license revoked permantly.
What we are petitioning for are Stricter and Harsher Penalties to those who Drink and Drive. There have been more people killed by drunk driving than guns in the past year. I believe that if we pull together and make a stand, we can change the law and make our roads safer for our families to travel once again. After the first offense, a violater should have a breath blower installed on their vehicles along with a $1000 fine and 15 day jail time. Second offenses are happening ever day, as in the case with David, her second offense nearly cost David his life, leaving behind a 3 month old baby, fiance and a loving family. Second offenders should held to the maximum penalty allowed. A $3000 fine, license suspended indefinately and 30 days jail time. Also we must stop the crooked lawyers who are out making life for these offenders easy by making settlements and plea bargins. Drunk Drivers will never learn a lesson with these people out there making it hard on the victims. Remember its the Victims of Drunk Driver who has it hard, when they have to set countless hours watching their loved ones hooked up on ventalators and machines hanging on to life, while lawyers are out looking for a easier way to get these killers back out on the roads. It has got to stop. And we need your help. Please sign the petition for Stricter and Harsher Penalties Against Drunk Drivers.
