My Father was a victim of a terrible disease known as Alcoholism. He battled with this disease for many years. As a result he has had a total of four DUI\'s. When he got the first one he was only 20 years old. He received his last one in 1989 at the age of 27. Because of his irresponsible actions his Driver\'s license was permanently revoked. My father is now 46 years old and has been sober for more than 15 years. He is not only a wonderful husband, Father, and Grandfather. He is a positive, outstanding citizen in the community. He has been working for the same company for 16 years. Our family has spent thousands of dollars in lawyers fees to try to get his license back, even if it was a hardship license for work purposes. The only way for him to receive a Hardship license is if the law is changed. I know that DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE is a very serious offense. I also believe that my Father has paid his debt to society and he realizes the mistakes he made when he was a young man. He has not been able to drive for more than 18 years. I believe that people deserve a second chance and I honestly do NOT think he deserves to be punished for the rest of his life. The last thing that I am doing with this law is putting DRUNK DRIVERS back on OUR streets. I am putting people that have been sober and clean for more than 10 years and have proven themselves to be a benefit in our society.
