In the war on DUI where are the hearts and minds of the people

Phelps DUI arrest stirs controversy on DUI lawsOctober 1, 2014. Espn.com reported that Micheal Phelps registered a .14 on his DUI breath test. That is not the interesting story. The interesting story is found in the comments to the story.  Many of the commenters called DUI laws a joke and a scam.  The comments ranged from the legal limit being too low to DUI prosecutions being about government revenue and not public safety.  Government policy makers have over-played their hand. DUI laws are too tough for the tipsy and too soft on the really wasted. Of course, opinions differ on where to draw the lines.  Further, public safety issues like texting and driving and drivers over 65 years of age which have been established as more dangerous than driving over the 0.08 legal limit are not enforced at all much less by jail and license suspensions.  Selective enforcement of special interest crimes by law enforcement at the behest of public safety lobbyist have undermined the respect for authority in society in general.
