DUI versus DWI

Jim Irsay just got a DUI.  Who is Jim Irsay?  Well, if you don't know he's a billionaire.  He's the owner of the Colts.  He's been in recovery for ~15 years.  But he just got a DUI.

With all the money in the world, you still cannot void consequences of addiction.  However, when someone of fame and fortune has a run-in with the law, some want stiffer penalties.  "Someone like that shouldn't get away with it", they may say.  But that type of thinking is, in essence, a double standard.  Why should otherwise successful individuals receive a more stern sentence.  Justice should be blind.  

Cristina will dive into this topic and explore the difference between DUI versus DWI.  What is a DUI?  You may be surprised.  For example, it's not just driving with an intoxication level above the legal limit (e.g., 0.08 BAC).  And what may the future hold.  Could you rationalize that people that text and drive are under the influence of their smart phone and, therefore, unable to drive cautiously.  

Another perplexing questions is: "Are people that get DUI's addicts or alcoholics?".

Don't miss this show.  It's going to be great.
