Excellent. So we'll be paying people to inform on each other. This is a great use of money and brings people closer as they spy on each other.

If I lived in Indiana, "Party at my house!" After a few well placed calls...bam! party pays for itself!

If I lived in Indiana and discovered someone invited me to their house party just to score a few bucks for getting me busted..Bam! BAM! BAM BIFF BASH! CRASH! House, and possibly the owner gets destroyed!

Yeah, I would understand get'n an 'upper decker' and drain-o in my fish tank if I tried that.

jokersmild: This is a great use of money and brings people closer as they spy on each other.

It's not for being drunk, it's for drunk driving. Have you ever been driving and seen someone weaving around on the road so you hurried up and passed or slowed down to avoid getting hit? This happens a lot, the person looks out for their own safety rather than call the police. A $50 incentive is enough for many people to make that call and get the asshole drunk driver arrested.

I say asshole drunk driver because there is no drunk driver whom is not an asshole.

Drop a quarter - get 50 bucks.

But pay phones (when you can find them) are 50 cents now

I like it when sensitive topics get posted to Fark. Hopefully someone will say that drunk driving is fun and then someone else will explain the realities of it to them. Then a stupid argument will follow.

Supporting drunks but slamming drunk drivers is like supporting our troops without supporting the chickenhawk asshats who put them over there fighting an unjustified and undeclared war.

Ha.

I support the war but am against the troops. So I guess I'm for drunk driving but against drunks.

Would rather have my taxpayer money for a $50 bottle of Don Patron. I'll but my own TF membership next time I have a bottle.

Well, I've no reason to come back here and read the rest of this thread. You've gone and ruined the ending for me.

Wow, I shouldn't be driving while posting, or drunk either...

I'm a going to the bar and hanging out side with my cell phone. Should have enough for my 8 childrens university fees.

Round where I live, using the phone while driving is prohibited. Which means I don't call in 200mph speeding idiots or drunk drivers. Sure makes the roads saver!

Me and a buddy once turned in a drunk driver who was plowing through lanes with his huge SUV at 3:00am in the morning. We just gave his license plate number and location and then went back to our dorm. No idea whether he got arrested or not, but the way he was swerving into incoming traffic it was rather obvious he was drunk.

But drunk driving IS fun. I just got home. I had 2 beers before I got in the car, and boy was I wasted. I narrowly avoided crashing into a schoolbus full of nuns and babies and a mini van full of celebrating innocent high-school cheerleaders. Good thing I'M off the farking road. Maybe next time I'll get busted and go to jail where I belong.

I was at the pub last night and saw plenty of ppl drive home drunk..
/no, I wont take a cheque

Business plan:
Move to Indiana.
Go to a Ti*tie bar.
Buy drinks all around.
Sit in the parking lot taking down license plates.
Phone 'em in.
Call for a cab.

Repeat.

Maybe I only break even, but I see some tats. Yay tats!

A beer or two is not drunk driving. Not remembering you drove you and your friends home is. The later is the drunk driving that the problem.

Sometimes I wonder how much the people in power really want to discourage drunk driving. I mean, the first thing they could do is subsidize public transit systems to run until like 3 a.m. instead of 12:30 or so. But that wouldn't generate as much revenue.

DUI Henry Earl-style.

Of course, that would also entail asking the arresting officer to front you the money and to make a quick stop at the neighborhood liquor store to, umm, invest the fifty bucks.

Umm...no. According to my states MVD (or DMV elsewhere) caclulator, I can drink four 12 ounce bottles of regular alcohol % beer (aka 2 pints of good stuff) over a period of 2 hours and still be good to go.
 
2005-05-28 06:02:01 AM
.....calculator. Wish we could edit posts.
 
2005-05-28 06:05:21 AM
Fifty bucks? That's it? Come on, I know damn well that fines from DUI convictions are much higher than that. If the state wants me to narc on my friends, at least offer me a decent deal.

I support almost anyone who uses "chickenhawk" in a sentence.

You dont gotta "feel" drunk to actually be guilty of drunk driving. Doesnt take a lot of alcohol to fail a breathalizer...

I hope you die. You don't support it because you plan on driving drunk? PLEASE kill yourself, but no one else. Just do it with a gun or something, less messy. Put some plastic on the furniture. Then in your will give it to me.

Oh great, so to report an asshat driving drunk, we're supposed to become an asshat driving on a cell phone.

wtf is so hard about knowing your limit? Or better, inviting that one boring friend out with you all so they can be DD?

You know, they make these things called brake pedals, and also these things called off ramps and breakdown lanes. Pull over, make your call, get your reward. Surely you're not always rushing to places and barely getting there; you can afford a minute or two to collect your reward, that is unless you're making $3000/hour or so.

I remember when drinking and driving was a sport, not a crime.
Up until about 1990, the cops wouldn't mess with you unless you were shiat-faced, now 3 beers is a DUI.
I can drive better after a 12 pack than many of you assholes can SOBER!

Lots of good reasons to stay out of Indiana. People from Indiana are called "Hoosiers". The source of the word is unkown, but Hoosiers is a synonym for hick, rube, shiatback redneck, upper-class Arkansan.

Witch Hunt, it's the American way. Any bad driving mistakes, must be a drunk driver or high on marijuana.

Heres the plan...Call the Fuzz on a bunch of drivers (drunk or not) on one side of the county. Loot the other side of the county, knowing that their response time will be nice and slow being tied up with the drivers
