FACT: WA STATE DISTRACTED DRIVERS, HOLDING ELECTRONIC DEVICES, KILL AND INJURE PEOPLE, THE PUNISHMENT AND PENALTIES, BY LAW, SHOULD BE THE SAME AS DUI LAWS.
Jail Time. In all states, first-offense DUI or DWI is classified as a misdemeanor, and punishable by up to six months in jail. That jail time may be increased under certain circumstances. … MANY STATES ALSO REQUIRE MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCES OF AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS ON A FIRST OFFENSE.
MANY STATES also require minimum jail sentences of at least several days on a first offense. Subsequent offenses often result in jail sentences of several months to a year.
For a DUI or DWI that’s been classified as a felony — either because the driver killed or injured someone or because it’s the driver’s third or fourth DUI — jail sentences of several years are not uncommon. Again, this depends on state law, the facts of the case, and the discretion of the judge at trial.
FINES IN ADDITION TO JAIL SENTENCES, courts can and do impose high fines for DUI or DWI. These range from $500 to as much as $2,000.
DRIVER’S LICENSE PROBLEMS A DUI or DWI offender stands a good chance of having his or her license suspended for a substantial period of time (either by court order or mandate of the state motor vehicles department). FOR EXAMPLE, MANY STATES suspend a first offender’s license for 90 days; a second offender’s license for one year; and a third offender’s license for three years.
IN MANY STATES IF YOU COMMIT THE SAME CRIME , KILLING AND INJURING PEOPLE, YOU DO THE SAME TIME

May 10, 2013 – Since New York City Mayor Bloomberg announced the 20-ounce soda ban last fall, the controversy has garnered national attention. But, this is just the latest example of his attempt to expand the “nanny state” that has become New York City.
Bloomberg’s 12 years as mayor of New York City have been referred to as a “stereotypically laughable example of a liberal nanny state at its worst.
What Has Bloomberg Tried To Regulate Or Ban In New York City?
A BETTER QUESTION MIGHT BE WHAT HASN’T HE TRIED TO REGULATE OR BAN.
HERE’S THE LIST OF SOME OF THE ITEMS ON HIS NANNY AGENDA: ALCOHOL, CALORIE COUNTS, carbon, CELL PHONES, CIGARETTES, contraceptives, composting, fingerprinting, gasoline, NOISE, POLITICS, PRIVACY, SECOND AMENDMENT, SODA, SODIUM, Styrofoam, taxis, tanning, traffic congestion and trans fats.
BLOOMBERG’S 12 YEARS AS MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO AS A
“STEREOTYPICALLY LAUGHABLE EXAMPLE OF A LIBERAL NANNY STATE AT ITS WORST. HE “UNLEASHED A TSUNAMI OF PUBLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES” IN AN ATTEMPT TO REGULATE OR BAN DOZENS OF ITEMS AND BEHAVIORS FROM BIG GULPS TO CIGARETTES, from composting to trans fats.
HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE THINKS THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOVERNMENT “SHOULD INFRINGE ON YOUR FREEDOM.”
BLOOMBERG DOESN’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, OR WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.
HE HAS ACTUALLY SAID,“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT.
BECAUSE WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT CHANGES WITH WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD,
AND YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS FOR YOU.”
And Bloomberg has spent his billions trying to be that somebody.
Bloomberg’s ban on cell phones in schools simply showed how out-of-touch he was with today’s realities.
DEC 31, 2013 – Michael Bloomberg leaves office tomorrow after 12 years as New York City’s mayor. No mayor in recent memory has added so much to a city. Or taken so much away. To remember him properly, here’s a list of everything Bloomberg banned during his time in office.
Is American freedom suffering from being micromanaged by Nanny States, government? THAT MAKE TOO MANY LAWS, about how people should live their lives, especially about, gun control, eating, smoking, or drinking, coffee, water, sugary water, energy drinks, overprotective or interfering unduly with personal choices, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Like, driving to work holding your morning cup of Starbucks? Or eating a McDonalds egg McMuffin in your car?
Jul 27, 2017 Absolutely no one likes to be micromanaged. It’s frustrating, demoralizing, and demotivating. Yet, some states can’t seem to help …
Down Right insulting, WA State’s Micromanaging Nanny’s, PASSING A LAW, THAT CONNOTES ANYONE DRIVING IN WA STATE (including tourists) CAN’T CHEW GUM AND DRIVE AT THE SAME TIME……..
Connotes by definition: imply or suggest (an idea or feeling) in addition to the literal or primary meaning.
Micromanagement is Mismanagement.
Micro-managers are bad news for business and bad news for employees.
They dis-empower staff, stifle opportunity and innovation, and give rise to poor performance.
MICROMANAGEMENT IS JUST PLAIN BAD MANAGEMENT.
