Tar and feather the idiot, then drop him off the Skyway Bridge and see if he can fly and swim!

Yes, it's ok if he has a few befor he tries flying and swimming, mabey he can do that better than he can driveing.

Another prime example of why drinking and driving don't mix. Agree with Bubba Watcher dropp them over the side of the bridge, tied to a keg of beer.

I'll bet if it was posted in the bar this guy was at how it was 'work zone safety awareness month' or if there were a bunch of 'orange barrel' donation cards hanging around the bar he'd have had second thoughts and called a friend to come pick him up. Sure.

Those construction warning signs and all those cones and orange barrels really stopped that guy from getting drunk, duh. Let's get with it people, gotta start thinking about making it harder for the chronically impaired drivers to get that way, it sure doesn't seem we can stop them from driving and hurting and killing people.

You couldn't pay me enough to climb that high to paint anything! Hope the guys covered in tar are ok. As far as the driver, I would think after that he might give up drinking, but someone in my family got a DUI and still drinks & drives! Just a matter of time before it catches up to u, I do worry about the other people on the road.

I just wonder why would they build a bridge that needs to be painted in the first place? I think maybe they were under the influence of something more than alcohol!!

Problem is-it's usually not the drunk who gets hurt while driving. Everyone else has to pay the price. And while we're at it-if I see one more driver coming at me while on their precious cell phones-I'm gonna ripp it out of their hands and put it where the sun don't shine.
