    Huntington Village and the 110 corridor are nothing but a DWI trap….You are better off not patronizing Huntington businesses!

    Unconstitutional DWI laws….4 bars on every block…..4 cop cars at every road block….its a win win situation for revenues!!!
    Someones gotta stimulate that big money maker court system and malnourished lawyers down in Islip!!
    DRINK AND DRIVE>>>DRINK AND DRIVE>>>DRINK AND DRIVE!….its your civic duty….its expected of you!!

    Here’s a couple of hints for making it through a DWI check point… taxicab or designated driver! Only ignorant fools drink and drive . They will kill you and your loved ones. Enjoy the up coming holidays!

    There are 3 twenty something adults living in my house who regulary frequent the clubs,bars and restaurants in town.They and all their friends know that they can call me for a ride at anytime,no questions asked no judgement passed.But I usually take them back for their cars the next day because they use taxi’s.I’d much rather do this then pick them up in CI,the hospital or the morgue.

    If you drink and drive you deserve everything you get. Drink responsibly, drink with friends with one assigned as a designated driver, call family or friend if no one else is around, call a cab, call a limo, whatever it takes. The next morning,you may have a headache but you’ll be alive and not in big trouble.

    Why don’t we just ban Alcohol all together!!!
    Whada ya think Safety Nazis???
    Why is Alcohol legal…look at all the crime it produces!!….ban it!!…put people who possess it in jail!!!…turn them into felons…..
    ……………………………………………nahhhh bad idea….we’ll loose too much revenue….better to loose a few hundred people a week than all the billion dollar windfall booze brings in every year!!!

    DWI laws are a farce that was concocted in the early 1980’s to drum up overtime for our millionaire cops!!
