Another money grab by government, let's throw more slop into the trough of the DUI industry...

Please, these worthless programs do not make anyone any safer, it's just pinching the unfortunate targets of MADD's crusade against alcohol (not drunk driving) for more cash. Educate yourself and stop the MADDness!
