Why do we not have this charge in Ireland?
Vehicular homicide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are states in th US where you can serve up to 20 years for this charge!
When I googled the same in Ireland I get stories of fines and suspended sentences!
Is this another example of our lax attitiude to drink in this country.
Its a poxy indictment on us that those who recklessly murder other drivers can walk free with little more than a tap on the back of the hand!
The possibility of 20 years might teach us a lesson!
