Glad they found the perp. Too often, these hit-and-run drivers get away after too little police investigation.

Sadly due to our lax laws, the criminal will be released and back behind the wheel of his car within a week only to do it again sooner or later. This would never happen other countries. We go way too easy on drunk drivers. Would you even consider getting behind the wheel if these were our laws????
In Norway, DUI offenders are sentenced to three weeks in jail, with hard labor. In Saudi Arabia, DUI offenses are punishable by lashes in the public square. In South Africa, DUI offenders are fined $10,000 and/or a ten-year prison sentence. In El Salvador, a DUI conviction can mean a death sentence!Sep 14, 2012
