Letter: Highway robbery

It is a bit disturbing to me that a person can get five DUIs and be looking at only a minimum of 60 days in jail (“Aspen woman gets 90-day jail sentence for fifth DUI,” Jan. 28, The Aspen Times). Pitkin County Jail, too!

It is equally disturbing that Colorado allows immigrants in the country illegally (undocumented as they like to be called) to obtain a Colorado driver’s license! If one is somewhere they are not authorized to be, they should be denied certain privileges allowed to taxpaying citizens.

The roads of Colorado are built and maintained by the tax dollars of working citizens who pay taxes for every penny we earn.

Just my two-penny opinion!
