I dont feel completely sorry for this woman. You should NEVER drive when taking medication. PERIOD! Says so right on the bottle. If she just had oral surgery and just taken the pills how could she know what kind of effect they would have? As for the man who reported her, she did run a stop sign. So good for him.
But I think the DUI charges have gotten way out of hand. This is the best money making scheme the state has ever come up with. They get the support of the community saying "throw those drunks in jail" while taking mass quantities of money away from people who are innocent. I bet that most of those officers have had a beer at dinner and then drove their car home. Under our law that is a big no no. You telling me Napalitano doesnt have the occasional glass of wine with dinner? I better see her taking a cab home. I dont advocate drinking and driving but have you seen those people texting and driving? They are just as inattentive and slow to react.
I am sick of the guilty till proven innocent approach. They immediately take your license away even if you have only been charged with DUI. (not convicted) Why are we punishing people before they are even prosecuted? hmmm
