YOUR article on Saturday regarding ‘the hope’ that drivers will think before driving while drunk, will never hit home while we have judges who consider that a two-year sentence is sufficient deterrent for a driver who was three times the limit and who has totally destroyed a family’s life. 

This dereliction of duty to the public by the judiciary system should not be possible in our modern society.

I hope that Mark’s colleagues or friends have established a collection on his behalf so at least the family will be spared any financial hardship on top of everything else.
