For a first offender with no injuries, this is a good solution by the judge, IMO...
Proper move by the Judge imo.
I agree. Help make car fatalities a reality for the young man.
I personally think the judge should have just send him to jail and took away his driver's license.
I think all of the above.
I do think it's good though. Especially for young people who still have a little of that "it won't happen to me" mentality. Not all of us had that mentality, but enough of us did that I don't think it's wrong to force someone to grow up and see that such tragic results are real, and not just distant news stories.
When I was about 18, a friend of mine drove drunk and killed another of our friends. Having it happen so close made it so much more real than it was before. I have never been an irresponsible kid, either, but it solidified my resolve to never drive under any amount of influence.
