Why don't we ban alcoholic beverages instead of making it illegal to drive drunk?

    You on't even know who has been drinking and driving drunk.


    Btw you lie..

    Americans are still way too tolerant of drunken driving



    Despite some success lowering the percentage of alcohol-related highway deaths to 29.2 percent of all traffic fatalities, that still means that 10,265 people were killed in 2015. That's a 3.2 percent increase over 2014. It's still almost a third of all traffic deaths.

    Yeah, and common sense laws stopping people from having 'a beer' while driving appear to have lowered the number of drunk driving fatalities. Poor, bear, the law just won't allow it.

    Why bother to have laws against drunk driving, since it won't stop people from driving drunk?

    Fatalities have decreased thanks to manufacturing improvements that make cars far more capable of taking a hit. Much of that technology has come from the racing world, and has nothing to do with regulations. The number of drunk driving crashes has remained about the same over the last 20 years.

    How is it common sense? Me drinking a beer and driving is less dangerous then you putting on make up/ lipstick on while driving .

    I agree. Instead, when they crash into something they lose everything and spend the rest of their lives in prison. Here in Nevada it's a felony when you get to your third arrest. We have assholes who are on arrest number 17! Fuck them. Toss them in prison and throw away the key. But no, idiots like you say "ahhhh, they didn't hurt no one (this time), give them a break". Fuck 'em. They have no regard for the rights of others so why the fuck should I care about them?

    Right, hence the no drinking, makes it easier for the cops.


    Jesus, look at the big picture.
