Snowmobiling is an incredibly fun sport. When I was young and foolish, I too used
alcohol whil riding. I also crashed a couple sleds but the top speed was 70mph. We need strict laws to keep drunks from killing themselves and others. Lets get it done.

Because the fact that there are laws against drunk driving has caused alcohol related car accidents to drop to zero.

Just because you pass a law doesn't mean it's going to have effect you intend.
