The paper examines the issues of drunk driving as well as the impact law enforcement has had on its reduction. The paper argues that drunk driving is more of a social issue than a legal issue and that education must be combined with law enforcement to make a difference. The paper contends that the legal system has the ability to mandate treatment and perhaps save the drunk driver as well as those he would have encountered on the road.
