I remember way back when I was growing up when we all learned to drive when we were drunk. Even the driving instructors all had alcohol on their breath back then. It was a different world then. What the hell happened? Obama happened. He single handedly destroyed a great nation. It always starts slowly " Islam is cool" "we don't want to hurt anybody" and next thing you know islamists are flying planes into buildings and then we even elected one of them into the oval office. What the hell is wrong with you people?. I need a beer.

There should be a drunk driving hour... where only drunks are allowed on the streets. All together at the same time. It should occur right after happy hour.

Great idea, in theory. However, I can see several problems with that.

1. How many drunks would be honest? "Oh, I hate I have to stay here while the drunks get to drive. I can drive just fine." So there might be wrecks after drunk driving hour.

2a. How many people in a hurry would get drunk just to be allowed to drive? "Oh, my kid had to stay late for practice and there have been sex-offenders hanging around the school lately, so I need to get there as soon as practice is over, so I need to get drunk to be allowed to drive."

2b. What about the people who would pretend to be drunk to get to drive during this hour?

3. Then there would be complications with law enforcement. Would emergency workers and cops have to drive drunk to be allowed out? And what about rescue workers responding to a wreck during DD Hour, only to get hit by other drunks on the road? That is bad enough of a problem now, where a cop is responding to a drunk driver and is standing beside their car, when another drunk driver hits the cop as they are standing there.

Still, I like the clever thinking here and this novel approach.

Reminds me of the person who supposedly was at a party and had been messing with whatever drugs were there. Maybe they were on marijuana and ecstasy that may have been laced with LSD. When they felt it was time to leave, they got in the passenger side of their car, put their key in the glove compartment lock, and complained about their car not starting. Nobody there offered to start it for them for real, since I guess they figured if this person was too messed up to know they were in the passenger seat and had their key in the glove compartment, not the ignition, then he didn't need to be driving.

A driving instructor once was telling about how good attorneys have been known to get drunk driving offenses thrown out of court. An example they gave was of a man who was in the Winn-Dixie parking lot, bouncing his car off of a guy-wire connected to a utility pole. He was just having fun and wasn't hurting anyone. However, he fit the legal definition of drunk driving. He was intoxicated while behind the wheel, the car was moving, the engine was running, and it was a public location. Well, guess what his attorney argued? The man was held in jail for over 3 days, which was longer than the time stated in another law that says if you have an "accident"/collision with utility equipment, you must report it within 72 hours. So by holding him in jail, they were basically forcing him to break another law, according to the attorney. So the case was dismissed on a technicality.

That reminds me of a type of fraud. Some businesses and airlines offer special incentives for gay customers. They do that to try to establish a good reputation in the gay community and drum up business. And the rationale they use is that the world is tough and bigoted, and they want to give this particular segment of their customers a break. And in some cases, ticket upgrades may help reduce harassment on a flight. That is fine if a business wants to accommodate LGBT customers.

Now here comes the fraud part. There happen to be "straight" customers who are willing to pretend to be gay to get special benefits. Like if an airline is offering free ticket upgrades for gay passengers, 2 "straight guys may arrive together, maybe holding hands, maybe going as far as a peck on the cheek.

One novel solution that a right-wing, Christian radio host came up with to stop this sort of thing was to add sexual orientation to drivers' licenses and state-issued ID cards. I know this post is mostly off-topic, but it does make a person wonder about a system of special driving privileges for drunk drivers.

Oh, I had considered another idea about drunk driving. In Biblical times, there were cities of refuge, where you could flee to if you killed someone by accident or were falsely accused of murder, and you could move about freely, work for a living, etc. while things were being sorted out. And today, there are parts of communities where people such as sex-offenders are not allowed. I've also played the game Quarantine, where the cities are basically prisons. So why not a drunk-driving city? If you are convicted of drunk driving, you are sent to live there a certain length of time. You can drive and move about freely as you wish. Maybe be given a drunk-driving license designed to be used only in designated drunk driving zones.

This story reminds me of my scummy, drug, drunk neighbors!!!

If I could post a picture you would be ROTFLMAO!!

One time they came home drunk from the bar. He was drinking a pint of liquor from a paper bag. He was so drunk that when he got out of the driver's door he was leaning on his girlfriend. The problem is that his girlfriend is so disabled she can barely walk sober.

This was such a bizarre sight that my friend who was helping my brother move my couch dropped his side in shock!

He almost made the couch drop on my brother's foot.

The Drunk leading and leaning the Drunk!
wow
