Councilman Gould noted that <br />discretion is permitted if the penalty will cause physical or mental distress to.the offender, but <br />he did not find the terminology "extraordinary -circumstances" definitive enough to warrant dis- <br />cretion, and he did not feel the law should be diluted. He commented that in other countries where <br />the mandatory penalty is required the law has proven to be a deterrent to drunk driving,.and he felt <br />the people should know that they will serve the penalty if they take enough alcohol to lose control. <br />Councilwoman Allen felt that the proposed ordinance provided for a mandatory jail sentence, and she <br />asked -that the Council receive copies of any of the written judgments.that defer the sentence..
