So far behind


To the Editor:
On a recent road trip, I picked up a copy of the Omaha World Herald (4/30/2013) and read an article about a 61-year-old man who was convicted of his third DUI and as a result lost his drivers license for 15 years, with 60 days in jail, a $1,000 fine and four years of probation. 
We continually read of persons with 5, 6 7 or more DUI offenses in Montana. The question that comes to my mind is “Why are we so far behind the curve in this state when it comes to dealing with DUI offenses?” Surely, we can do more to curb this insidious problem in our society.
