Some of us can hold our liquor better than others. I can have 4 or 5 drinks and they will not bother me at all. I'll drive, but not when I'm real drunk.

The American law enforcement community try to stop this crap, and they get shut down. It's a pathetic mistake all States won't enforce this, oh except Arizona. And they have figured out how to arrest them without roadblocks. We had two last weekend coming into Utah County, and they busted dozens of drunks. They won't tell the public there race or legal Status, until they kill someone.

Remember that when they pull you over and you blow twice the limit. It really depends on you system at the time . If you ate Food , How strong the drinks are made , What you order. Bet you think your bullet proof . And never been locked up for booze.

Your right, I have never been caught drinking and driving. When I drink I only drink 4 or 5 and no more.
