    When will people get the message? my fear is that it will get worse once marijuana is legalized.

    I do not condone drinking and driving, and I believe the police should pursue charges where justified. However, shaming offenders by publishing their names and, by extension, identifying their families, is really unfair.

    If a young person had a father or mother who had been charged with DUI it could cause them acute embarrassment at school, and expose them to bullying, ridicule, etc. Similarly, an employee who was battling depression, and was charged with DUI, could lose their job, and that, in and of itself, may be enough to push them into a state where they do harm to themselves.

    The police can publish the offence without identifying the offender. There is a concept in this country that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. The police need to start respecting it.
