I saw a chick fall asleep at the wheel of a McDonald's drive thru in Branford. I tried several times to get her to pull to the side and park but I could not get her awake enough to understand. Finally I said 'the heck with it' and left.

Also a very drunk chick wrapped her car around a tree in front of my house, completely totaling it, and I couldn't get her to understand the car wasn't drivable. She was too drunk to comprehend and she thought the car was just stuck.

It amazes me just how drunk people get and still get behind the wheel and drive.

Come to think of it, 10 years ago I walked out of Boston Market in Stratford on Barnum Ave, near Burlington Coat factory. A very, very drunk guy in a pickup truck was going east on Barnum towards Milford. He was hitting everything on the right side of the road- cars, curbs, devon bridge abutment, poles, signs, and he just kept going! I followed him just to watch. As soon as he was on the Milford side of the bridge he was surrounded by 4 cop cars. But he was so drunk he didn't even care that he was destroying his truck!

i'm suprised, in these cases, that their foot does not fall off the brake when they pass out. the cars are usually in gear and yet they don't move.
