    WHT fake news.

    Always the pathetic attempt to linking traffic fatalities to drivers snared in roadside traps for having wine with dinner.

    Until WHT decides to honestly reporti this issue, they are just another partisan wing of MADD. Controlled by them, evidently.

    Not that I read their pathetic rag, I just like to raid it to tear down the false “news” facade they attempt to put forth.
