Should Drunk Driving be decriminalized in BC?

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

What a difference a little bit of time can make.

On October 6, 2010, Ethan Baron wrote an article entitled:

Finally, everyone’s safer–except drunk drivers”

On December 5, 2010, he wrote an article entitled

“They’ve decriminalized impaired driving”

Most people would think that the roads would be safer from drunk drivers if those drunk drivers faced criminal prosecutions.

Why would Mr. Baron write an article stating that they’ve (the government) have decriminalized impaired driving?

And if that’s true, does it make our roads safer if impaired driving is decriminalized?
