At first I was worried but then I realized it was a good thing:

One reason: Reduced manpower means police are missing less obvious drunks as they focus efforts elsewhere.
I want police to focus on real drunks, not "less obvious drunks" which means people who have a prohibited alcohol concentration and may not be drunk.

Driving through Michigan (my parents were born there and escaped, but I have a lot of extended family to visit there), I saw billboards for an anti-teen drinking campaign. It said something like, "Allegan County teens start drinking at 13." Then I drove a little further and saw, "Kent County teens start drinking at 14," and I thought, "Damn, Kent County, you'd better step it up!"

/I don't think those billboards will have the effect they want.

Forty-Two

Driving cross country recently I was struck* by the number of signs asking people to call police to report drunk drivers. Except the signs in Illinois (+/- 1 state) asked drunk drivers to call police, if I parsed them correctly.

*Figuratively

ringersol

In general, perception of probability of punishment is more important than severity. Fine doubling, for example, was demontrated to have no effect on violation rate. (So of course all states adopted it.)

The entire DUI industry is broken. It should be based on cure rather than punishment. These people aren't thinking about punishment when they drive. Many of them don't even know they are legally considered drunk.

A first time offense is probably a non-alcoholic driver and an isolated incident. Let him go with a caution and a note on the record in case it happens again.

A repeat offender probably needs treatment and supervision, e.g. probation with a daily reporting requirement.

A chronic offender, having failed treatment and supervision, can't be trusted to be out of jail.

There is a billboard in my town that says something to the effect of "Texting while driving means your eyes aren't on the road"

because if there's one thing thats safer, it's keeping your eyes on a billboard!

No. With the stepped up enforcement we are just catching the high achievers that have probably always been out there.

ER job years ago- woman with a BAC in the mid .4 range. Confirmed by blood analysis. She was walking, swearing, spitting, pissing in the corners of the room. Lovely lady. She shouldn't have been breathing but she was still walking and talking. The tolerance of a champion.

Saw people with blood levels over .3 that seemed fine. They had to camp out with us because the local psych hospital wouldn't take them over .25 and the cops preferred them under .2 before they tossed them in the tank.

The drunk guys were OK unless they had piggy backed coke or meth. The women were nasty, snarling, vile pigs.

My father was one of these superdrunks. Never knew him not to be intoxicated. Kinda sucks not knowing the man he was beneath the alcoholism. He was very rarely pulled over, but I could always tell he shouldn't be driving and took his keys from him on multiple occasions.

He left this world last month at the age of 52. Liver failure did him in. I find it ridiculous that a thread on fark would remind me of him... But here I am.

I hear what you're saying, but still find it odd no one was ever found walking around with a fatal BAC for many many years, which led to the idea it was fatal to reach such levels, and now multitudes are being found. If it were a simple matter of better enforcement we'd still have caught at least one person in the past who blew what is considered a fatal BAC. Instead of them just suddenly appearing everywhere in the last 10 years.

They use some pretty weak qualifiers for super drunk.

If you make it into your 40s or 50s, you are not a "super drunk," you are just a functional alcoholic. Real super drunks suffer organ damage and bow out of the game long before then.

2012-09-12 01:37:05 PM
I am truly in awe. I doubt my BAC has ever been above .15. Usually a couple or three shot-&-beers in a short intense session is enough to make me really want a nap but not make me feel that drunk or consistently cause a hangover. Two or three more than that will have me puking and passing out, then I will wake up sick.

I don't seem to get a physical craving either and I'm always able to resist "just one more." Sometimes I'll choose not to resist and regret it, which'll make me slow the fark for the next several days. It doesn't seem like I have it in me to be a regular alcoholic, let alone a super drunk.

I can't even manage to black out and/or piss myself.

Yes. We need to differentiate between the people who just had one too many and then drove, and the drunks, who will keep driving as long as they are physically able to get behind the wheel. As it is now, we're punishing the people who made a mistake one night under the same rules that we use on the super-drunks, who actually need some serious supervision and maybe jail time to get their shiat together.

If you fine a "normal" guy $1000 for blowing a .08, he's not going to do it again. But if you fined him $100, he's still learned his lesson. There's no reason for draconian DUI laws except to increase revenue and I guess justify roadblocks.

Now if you fine a drunk $1000, that won't slow him down a bit, except to curse his bad luck and he deserves a drink after all that.

Nice to see that the folks I grew up going to church with in Shields are doing their bit to reinforce stereotypes. Then again, Gratiot Road coming out of Saginaw is one of those stretches of exurban commercial strip that the term "traffic sewer" so aptly describes. For cops, it's an easy place to snare drunks.

TFA: Arrests of super-drunks more common in populated cities.

Me: The only town I recognize on there is Farmington Hills. Plus later on in TFA they say rural roads embolden (snort) drunks.

Mind you, that's how folks in Saskatchewan learn to drive, so clearly there's some kind of cultural gap here... :)

I like this. It's measured, and handles the chronic offenders correctly, which is to get them the fark off the roads forever.

Plus I think hit and runs should be doubled or tripled if under the influence (of anything). If they aren't already.

Back when I was drinking, ok last year, I got hit with a DUI. My bac level was .227. Damn tequila, they got me when I sat thru a green light. I was just sitting there slurring to myself that I shouldn't be driving. I was totally farked up.

Anyway, I now know what a .227 feels like and can't imagine how someone can even remotely function at levels .3 and above let alone .4. I was super drunk just over .2

I've since learned my costly lesson and now alternate beer and water instead of beer and tequila.

ArkAngel: As a resident of Wisconsin, I laugh at them


Wisconsinites are hardcore, for sure.

This summer we were camping in the U.P. of Michigan, and there was a couple from Wisconsin that were camping the next site over from us. We invited them to our campfire one night, and the guy brought over his big bottle of Mad Dog to share with us. ( I refrained). He casually mentioned that he has been drinking the Mad Dog since he was 13 years old. ( I guessed him to be about 40 now) Then during the course of conversation he told us, quite proudly, that he has had 5 DUI's. FIVE DUI'S. After hearing that we noticed that every time the two of them went somewhere, his wife drove.

Guess it pays off to start drinking at age 13. Wisconsin wins in my book.

Myria: If you manage to blow a .45, how long would you have to wait to be sober again?


I used to have a pretty serious drinking problem and wound up in the drunk tank with a .42 once. Staff couldn't believe that I was still as coherent as I was, infact they used 3 diff breathalyzers on me thinking the first ones had not been calibrated...

....anyways, they weren't supposed to let me go until my BAC went below .08. I was picked up around 2am and at the next day I was still blowing over .1 at 6pm, but they let me go anyways because they liked me.

A normal person should metabolize alcohol at about the rate of .025 per hour (about 1 drink per hour) so technically it should take 18 hours after your last drink to reach total sobriety, depending on a lot of factors. I think at that time my liver was probably working at a reduced capacity so it took me longer to process it all out. Now, having faced my demons and healed my liver, .025/hr is about right for me.

Having a breathalyzer on your car for nearly 2 years really helps you figure out how your body reacts to alcohol and actually trained me to drink responsibly (and most importantly never drive wile drinking).
 
2012-09-12 03:06:44 PM
These so-called "super drunks" accounted for 44 percent of all Michigan drivers arrested in 2011 after tests showed they were driving with a .08 blood-alcohol level or higher, up from 40.5 percent in 2006.

I agree. I never drive after having a drink, and thus have never been arrested for such, but the fines are way too high imho.

$1000 or more probably stopped someone from paying their rent.

If you're someplace where it's possible take a bus. You only have to be sober enough to get on, pay the fare and tell the driver where you need to get off: it helps if you're super-polite and say something like "I knew enough not to take the car but not enough to not tip the barmaid my cab fare home." Then all you have to do is get home from that corner in one piece.

But you can get as drunk as you want when you drink alone at home. That's my gimmick: since I started doing that I've had no "disorderly intoxication" arrests. (I could have just been cited for public drunkenness but keeping my damn mouth shut is hard enough when I'm sober.)

exactly be a responsible drunk. move to a walkable neighborhood or drink at home. it's really not that difficult. that's why they call it high functioning...

Well its obvious this is another example of the laws not keeping up with the changing times.
Like it used to be illegal for women to go outside after dark. Now, its ok. We can just tag and track them.
So it is with these archaic alcohol levels. A level of 0.08 is so old thinking. Obviosly we should consider updating the laws to keep up with a higher drinking levels. I say we double the max level to 0.16. Just think about the fewer DUI cases the courts and jails would have to deal with. That alone could save big$$$ for many areas. Could even mean lower taxes with less money spent on enforcement.
It is clearly a win win all the way around.

LibertyHiller: Nice to see that the folks I grew up going to church with in Shields are doing their bit to reinforce stereotypes. Then again, Gratiot Road coming out of Saginaw is one of those stretches of exurban commercial strip that the term "traffic sewer" so aptly describes. For cops, it's an easy place to snare drunks.


Holy crap! That was my neck of the woods growing up. Lived in kinda the no-man's land between Freeland, Hemlock, and Shields (went to Freeland schools.) Don't tell me you went to St. Mark's (the pine trees around the perimeter were my Eagle Scout project.)

Western Saginaw County is basically a swampier version of Kansas.

I blew a .088 after a valentines day dinner downtown san diego 8 years ago after being pulled over for no front license plate. I only shared a bottle of wine with the lady however I may have had a bit more than her. I then proceeded to spent 2.5 days in jail because they were having IT issues with the fingerprinting and booking processes. I now have to explain this via written letter and interview for an upper level designation I'm applying for. I hear they have little tolerance for DUIs.

last month the CHP started parking across the street from my favorite lakefront bar after about nine
at night, and pulling over anyone pulling out of their driveway. So now i take a boat. lake patrol leaves the
water at 9, so after then the coast is clear. still have to drive home from the dock but its way better than running
the gauntlet every farkin' saturday night....

Oh...that part of Michigan. ...no wonder. Move out of the slums, man. The rest of Michigan is so much better than DTW.

Holy Spirit for church, MacArthur for high school. Dad is buried in St. Andrew's. Wow, your old neighborhood has changed.
