It's more than chronic and the violators of such need to "pay the price" before innocent motorists, passengers, pedestrians, (including OUR children in walking to/from school and/or simply at play) are forced to "pay the price: of being maimed and/or .... Patrol with greater awareness, fairly arrest and prosecute "to the fullest extent" no matter their threats of retaliation--NO MATTER!

If micromanaging weapons then why not make it more difficult for convicted DUIs parties to own a weapon. ....far to ,any deaths and injuries related to the laxisity if these offenders and attorneys whom work to dismiss these should be held as accountable if then their clients end up killing someone or themselves to their families left behind !

Close the bars at 11pm. This will cut down the DUI's by 50%. Simple solution and we can deal with the 50% later. As Mom always said, "Nothing good happens after midnight." Now which Elmhurst Aldermen have the guts to do it?

Hey 3Gs....you sound paranoid. Take three Xanax and call me in the morning ! BOO !!
Wadjusay March 11, 2013 at 10:41 AM
Hey Vincent....do me a favor...give mother a goodnight kiss for me. By the way...your imaginary girl friend say ...."Baaaaaaa Baaaaaaa" !

Vincent, before running and shutting down the bars in Elmhurst at 11:00, did you do any research into this? How many of the people arrested actually were drinking in Elmhurst, or were they just passing through to go home? I don’t know the answer to this, but “I” would speculate that a lot were not drinking in Elmhurst, but I have no proof of that. What you want to do is to hamper business, which “I” would suspect, they would eventually shut down and move to a different town, taking away a tax revenue and there still would be the "DUI Problem". If you want to pick up the difference in the tax shortage, be my guest, I pay way too much in taxes already. Think before you speak.
