Specifically, ask for comprehensive DUI reforms, such as those
advocated by the Spindler Family:

  • Imposition of a "user fee" on alcohol sales to pay for enforcement

  • Adopt all recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board  report,
    “Reaching Zero: Actions to Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Driving,” released on May 14, 2013

  • Impose stiffer penalties on conviction of DUI and limit plea bargains

  • Adopt Administrative License Revocation and Vehicle Impoundment on arrest

  • Create and "Aggravated DUI" felony charge for incidents of high BAC, death or injury

  • Routinely use asset forfeiture on conviction -- take the vehicle away
