Enough is Enough!!! sign now

This petition is being made due to the idiocy of those who choose to drink and drive. Many people have lost their loved ones due this. It is time the law needs to be changed. At the current moment, in Ontario if you are caught driving drunk this is what you are charged with...

In addition to drinking and driving, Criminal Code convictions include criminal negligence causing bodily harm or death, manslaughter, dangerous driving and failure to remain at the scene of a collision.

This petition is suggesting that instead of being charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm or death, manslaughter and getting chances over and over again, those who are caught driving drunk should get their licence taken suspended for 5 years on the first offence and as well those who cause bodily harm or death be charged with intent. If someone gets behind the wheel and is drunk, than they have every intention of hurting or even killing another person.
