P.P.S. — How Many DUIs Are Too Many?

Issue: A sixth DUI arrest for woman convicted in fatal car accident: 1997 killing led to anti-drinking laws/Seattle PI

DFO: Stories such as this one happen again and again, as individuals are slapped with a DUI, pay their so-called debt to society, and then are turned loose again to get another DUI. Some of them, like this “human time bomb,” drive again even after they’ve killed someone while driving drunk.

Question: Besides locking these people up and throwing away the key, what can society do to prevent repeat DUI offenses?
