Joe was a beautiful person who made a silly mistake and paid the ultimate price .... we need to gain maximum support to change the law. Maybe then other young lives can be saved .....

Bump. I signed this last week. I think it's an odd quirk in the law that can create real problems - or in Joe's case, tragedy.

Have signed.

I also think driving age should be 18. And I wouldn't describe drink driving as a "silly mistake."

Many thanks for all your signatures, it means a lot.

With regards to your comment AngiBolen ... yes I agree, my words "silly mistake" was a bad choice when connected with issues relating to drink driving, however, it wasn't really aimed towards the "act" more the circumstance ..... this probably doesnt make sense without all the facts, but be assured Joes actions were wrong this isn't disputed. ... Thanks again for the signature ... Please share, as we still need maximum signitures to have a chance of getting this law changed.
