Please clarify... what does "DUI" stand for? Indicate it in your first post, please.


EDIT to above: thanks. How so is it BS? DUI cases that are placed in statistics, if I'm not mistaken, are mortality cases, so this only includes deaths due to driving under the influence, not those apprehended for reckless driving under drug/alcohol/substance abuse.

I'm not exactly sure how this becomes BS, in the end... but I think I get what you mean. My friends and even my brother have driven home on occasion after quaffing down several pints of beer, and still, no residual effects due to the alcohol. It really depends on your resistance, in the end. Besides that, I don't think it's BS, or maybe I don't quite understand why you think it's BS.

driving under the influence, of for instance, alchohol or drugs and some such....

i hate it! i hate it when people do that! my brother loves his alchohol, and i cant keep him off the road and hes been in more than a few accidents, im afraid hes going to kill someone... and i also rely on him to drive me, so im scared for my life too, but he doesnt listen to me. i think there should be severe penalties for people who do it.

ok, i'm going to say that the 0.08 limit here in the US is bullshit in my opinion. you can get that from freaking cough medicine. hell, a couple glasses of wine with dinner will put you over that. it should AT LEAST be 0.10 in my opinion, arguably higher.

big thing is getting the repeat offenders for genuine drunk driving off the road instead of wasting time enforcing such a low limit on everyone. i've known several people who got nailed 0.081 or around there and they were in perfectly decent shape.

my personal rule for when i'm driving is either one glass of wine, one import/microbrew, or two domestics, MAYBE a glass of scotch, but just one of those options, no more. it just ain't worht the risk. i'd get in less trouble for running over a baby than driving a hair over the limit.

Cops do suck. They would pull you over if they had nothing else to do.
