In Utah, what are the consequences for drunk driving? This guy endangered the lives of who knows how many people. Will he get a wrist slap? A small fine? Driving privileges revoked? Jail time? What should he have to pay for his irresponsible behavior? What will he pay?

To JSB of Sugar City, ID:

What would the consequences be in Idaho? Maybe we should pattern our laws after the potato state.

They are a lot tougher than the ones in Idaho. There it is a 1 year license suspension and a $250 fine/ Defendants who install an ignition interlock device on their vehicle in Idaho may be eligible for a restricted license that allows for driving to/from work/school.

The one thing I avoid at all costs when driving on the freeway are vehicles with Idaho license plates.
