Editor note:
I must admit I thought they were over-reacting. After all, I thought, the man has surely learned his lesson.
Surely after the horrors he has put others through the shocking state, and the horrors he must have endured himself, he would never drink and drive again. In fact, I went so far as to think that Ian Authur Covill is lucky to still survived, he could be hurt or die, if it happened in the middle of no where. I hope he has learned his lesson,

I will never know. I will never understand how anyone could get behind the wheel, knowing the risk, and with all the information we know these days about it, yet they still do it – they still get behind the wheel and drive while drunk. And they KNOW they should not be doing that – they know it even if they are drunk. Come on. They just lose their sense of whats real. But they still know right from wrong! And then some one ends up dead. Someones kid. Oh that is so sad I cannot even imagine what these families have had to go through just because of someone deciding its ok to be careless, just this once! WRONG!!!!
