CHP dropped the ball

On Friday, Sept. 10, my husband and I followed a severely drunken driver home.

After calling 911 twice, once from a cell phone while following her and again after we got home, with the license plate number, color and description of car, and address where she stopped, the CHP failed to respond.

What about the signs “Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.” What good are they? Will it take a bad accident before we can get this drunk off our roads?
