Lawmakers in Austin have considered passing bills targeting drunk drivers but without any success. The session is almost over. I don't understand why it is so easy to drive drunk -- and maim and kill other drivers -- in Texas.
At least one bill sponsored by a Republican from Dallas, freshman representative Stefani Carter, passed the House almost unanimously on Friday and moves to the Senate. It would suspend the driver's of anyone convicted of his fifth DWI offense for 10 years.
Wait, his fifth DWI? We let people drive with four convictions?
