So much publicity about Megan's Law about driving drunk with young children and all the people arrested for that . And yet there are STILL SO MANY stupid people out there who will still break that law . Maybe they need a LARGE TATOO on their forehead saying " I'm an Alcoholic who can't stop Drinking & Driving . I'm a danger to myself and my children . "
