Illinois: attorney Matt Haiduk asks ‘why do cops let drunk drivers get behind the wheel without stopping them?’

You know how drunk drivers are a danger? They cause accidents? You know how they kill people? You know how we can’t tolerate having impaired drivers on the road? You know how we are so gung-ho on punishing DUI that we won’t even tolerate a drunk driver pulling off the road to “sleep it off”?

Maybe none of that is true. Maybe it’s ok to let a drunk drive for a little bit. Or maybe keeping drunks off the road isn’t really as important as letting drunks on the road so we can then take them off the road and look like we’re doing some sort of good work. I don’t know.
