@no-quarter curious as to why you say NZ has a massive problem with drink driving and speeding. I ain't lived there for decades, so I don't know but massive problem relative to what?
Stats show increases in accidents and fatalities? More dui charges? Worse than ever in history?
Not having a go but I wonder about authorities and media dramatising our road fears. Apparently there's money to be made out there.
As for the fuckwit in the article, what's the main, number 1 objective of our criminal justice system? Is it to protect society or the rights of criminals? If the former then MAKE him unable to drive, don't fucken ask him!
