When I was 16 they made us pour the open ones out on the ground and lock the the rest of the case in the trunk before letting us go

They're 16 and 14 years old. Let's discourage drinking and driving at 16, free country or not.

The cops in Jersey used to stop us, search us and take our weed without even thanking us for the hook up.

Getting a DUI these days is a severe violation no matter where you live in this Country. There has been such a public uproar about drunk drivers that Legislators really toughened the laws. Most plea bargaining down to a lesser offense has been eliminated, and if you get 2-3 DUIs it's a felony.

The 16-year-old has her age on her side. Maybe your State has an alternative program she can attend to avoid jail time/loss of her license. She's still looking at a hefty legal bill.

That said, I don't know of a parent who hasn't gone through the same thing, including myself. My kid as a 16-year-old got a DUI. Did she learn something from the experience? Yes--be more proficient at not getting caught. Teenagers actually have a hormone that suppresses fear and enhances their invulnerability. I'm not trying to trivialize drunk driving, but with kids it's to be expected.

Sorry to hear about this, Thomas. In my state, huge fine, weekends in jail, no license until at least 18, even then, zero tolerance until 21. The best they are going to do is get some of the charges reduced, but the DUI will stand. I hope she had no drugs in her system. How did they get pulled over? erratic driving?

Nothing wrong with offering them counseling but they wouldn't have done that if they didn't consider themselves already in control of making their own decisions. Be careful that you don't create hard feelings by trying to make decisions for them.

The results from the urine test are not back yet. It's not going to surprise me if it comes comes back positive.

There is a lot of road construction in the area they were pulled over. And this is not the town she is from incidentally. They were lost. I imagine suspicious driving was observed, along with four kids in a car at 2:30 am on a Tuesday night. Well past curfew.

Thats something my wife and I discussed. We have to be mindful not to discipline them per say. Their parents are trash, but in the end we are not their parents. We can only tell them how disappointed we are in this.

Aint that the truth. (Subliminal hint? )

No doubt. But things have changed drastically since those days.

That's great.....seriously. I'm betting that all the VB'ers wish they could say the same, now that we are grown up and (some of us) already over the hill.
Funny how stuff that seemed fun at the time now gets remembered along with "thank God we didn't get caught".
