The legal and social ramifications of such a DUI conviction are incredibly far-reaching.

Tragic accident highlights the problem of drunk driving in the NFL

At this time of the year, the overwhelming majority of the conversation concerning the National Football League is dedicated to the hunt for the playoffs and the players who are most deserving of certain coveted awards. However, a fatal drunk driving accident involving two players from the Dallas Cowboys this past weekend has led many people to start talking about whether NFL personnel, coaches and players are doing enough to combat alcohol abuse.

Proposed legislation would target drunk school bus drivers in New York
