  1. Enough is enough! Laws need to be toughened against those fools who dare to drink & drive. And NV needs to enact a dram law whereby those dispensing alcohol are held financially liable for the carnage they abet by serving already intoxicated patrons. Bar owners, bartenders, cocktail waitresses, etc. are required to take "alcohol awareness" classes. What good are those classes if those same folks bear no responsibility for serving drunks? The insanity of "Happy Hours" and "all-you-can-drink" promotions also must be banned. There's nothing "Happy" about the misery they cause when the drinkers hit the road and threaten other motorists lives. It's crazy!
