I'm actually glad I got busted for DUI before I hurt somebody. There were so many times I should have not been behind the wheel. Arizona's laws are the toughest in the country. I'm out just over $10,000, had to take numerous classes, had to beg for rides, and got a little jail time. And then I got to pay higher insurance rates and for an ignition interlock device for a year. Blowing into that stupid thing all over town is embarrassing as hell.

Hopefully I can keep in mind the goddamned inconvenience and cost to prevent me from doing it again. Worst experience of my life. I freely admit that I needed a harsh penalty to make me stop.

I concur.The only reason I quit drinking was simple economics. I'd pass through every stage of drunkeness and be sober at the end of the night, so why bother wasting money on it?

With that BAC he should have been immobile or dead. How the hell did he get into a car and drive anywhere?
Assuming he's ~150 lbs. he'd have to have consumed about a gallon and a half of 80 proof to get to that level.

Look up "700 Club".

People who have earned there way into this club will often go into DTs below .10-.15 BAC.

"Career drunks" will be alert and coherent at .35-.40 BAC.

The body is amazingly adaptable.

Now just imagine having to drink a gallon-plus of booze every day just to get yourself to normal. (Apparently Graham Chapman was like this during the filming of Holy Grail)

Years ago, I knew a guy (friend of my landlord) who said he once woke up one morning in his car ... in the top of a tree. He had no memory of how he'd gotten there (Vermont mountain roads were involved). So he went back to sleep. He'd sobered up enough to realize where he was ... but not enough to panic about the fact that he, and his car, were perched in a tree.

This was a guy who chugged vodka from the bottle for breakfast, and acted sober while doing so. He probably had a higher BAC under normal conditions than most people do on a bender.
 
2012-11-25 10:08:58 AM
All I can think of is the epic hangover that must have followed.

If you lived in Beaverton or the surrounding areas, you too would probably live with an elevated BAC.

Why do we still have these kinds of headlines? It's been brought over and over how chronic drunks can still be functional with a .4 BAC. It's not something to aim for, it's just a fact.

If you smell like that and you're still walking around, you not only have a drinking problem, you probably have a pretty farked-up life and you look like hell. But yes, it can be done.

Pffffft! Amateur. At the height of my personal drinking career I blew a .64 after a party. I was waaaaaayyyy too drunk to drive, so I thought I would sleep it off in the car. No driving was involved, but the knock at the window woke me up a few hours later. Ambulance ride was fun, the doctor looking at me, the charts, me, the charts ... noting, "You should be dead."

/sobriety is more fun
 
2012-11-25 10:36:28 AM
oh, and the car can be parked, the e-brake engaged, and the engine dead, and you can still be charged with DUI.

Making one (albeit incredibly stupid) mistake is different. The laws will usually stop people like that. The hardcore drunks? Not so much. You can chalk your experience up to a ridiculously stupid judgement call. Alcoholics don't care and stuff like what you went through won't faze them.

Case in point: Friend had a DUI years ago. Mid-40s, had too much at a party, figured it was no big deal to drive the 5 miles back home. She got pulled over when she swerved across two lanes and blew a .14. Ended up w/a 90-day suspension of her license, $5K fine, classes, and crazy insurance rates for 3 years. She never did that again.

Meanwhile, drunk-ass neighbor has all but lost his license permanently at this point (3 DUI's in 2 years), can't remember how much in fines or jail time he's done, and he can't get car insurance. Not that that stops him from driving, mind you. After he lost his license, he still got pulled over. He tries to bum rides from other neighbors and we do it (because if we don't, he'll drive drunk). Basically, when he's out of booze at home, there's no stopping him from getting more.

Man survives nearly falling off an overpass

Meh. I survived nearly falling 35,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean when the Boeing 747 I was in nearly blew up due to a mechanic nearly forgetting to install a nearly critical engine part. Thankfully, we narrowly averted an almost tragedy by barely making it out alive.

Came in here to say that I survived nearly driving off a cliff once. Well, it was more like I parked 50 or so feet from the edge, but that's nearly, isn't it?
