Wednesday letters: Focus should be on saving lives

April 30, 2014 

— During the debate over Emma’s Law, one news article noted that House Minority Leader Todd Rutherford expressed concern about the reliability of the technology of ignition-interlock devices and, presumably, the inconvenience that may cause a convicted drunk driver in the operation of his or her vehicle.

What about the “inconvenience” of losing a loved one to a drunk driver? Should the possibility of preventing that not trump the possibility of a convicted drunk driver having to walk home?
