Are drunk driving accidents actually more common on New Years?

Decades ago when I was researching motorcycle accidents I seem to remember that drunk driving accidents on New Years were much less common than other times of the year.

Something that I think a lot of people forget is the fine print when you sign for your drivers license. You've agreed to follow the rules of the road--not being impaired, following the speed limits etc. Some rules are more strictly enforced than others, but in the long run, you break too many rules in too short of a time, and you lose the privilege of driving.

If you don't like the rules, or are incapable of following them for some reason, you may as well get used to being driven around.

Yay, let's all make racist jokes and let everybody know how superior we are to drunks!  Happy New Year All!  "Where's My $100?"

"Drinking Holidays" like New Years brings cab drivers out in force. We all know there's gonna be more cops out than usual tonight, so we are more likely to go out of our way to get a cab, or at the very least a DD. My local bar is even offering a $17 per person ride home in a limo tonight.

Plus it's winter here up north, it's cold, windy, and might be snowing. Screw motorcycling.

You see, he's leaving us hanging like that guy earlier with little to no stimulation. I don't like it one bit.

I plan to drive around and call in drunk drivers on my cell phone while driving.

What?
 
2012-12-31 08:11:46 PM
Ok, but if I get pulled over and I'm sober, I get the narc's name and address to get to kick him/her in the balls.
 
2012-12-31 08:15:34 PM
I'm not sure how much they really care. I followed a drunk for about 75 miles through 5 counties in Georgia and Alabama. He never was pulled over.

Monday Morning, 2:00 am

Early New Year's morning a policeman waited across the street from a popular bar, hoping for a nail a drunken driver, possibly preventing a tragic accident.

At closing time the patrons came out and the officer spotted his potential quarry. One man was so obviously inebriated that he could barely walk. He stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, looking for his car.

After trying his keys on five other cars, he finally found his own vehicle. He sat in the car a good ten minutes, as the other patrons left. He turned his lights on, then off, wipers on, then off. He started to pull forward into the grass, then stopped.

Finally, when he was the last car, he pulled out onto the road and started to drive away.

The patrolman, waiting for this, turned on his lights and pulled the man over. He administered the breathalyzer test, and to his great surprise, the man blew a 0.00.

The patrolman was dumbfounded. "This equipment must be broken!" he exclaimed.

"I doubt it," said the man, "Tonight I am the designated decoy!"

Well January is the middle of fracking winter. Most people north of like I-10 aren't riding then.

tbhouston: BronyMedic: tbhouston: What crime is drunk driving anyway?

Well, it's a crime covered under Statute 55-10-401 in the State of Tennessee. But that's beside the point.

tbhouston: You are at a higher chance to commit a crime...but you haven't done anything yet

Society says otherwise, which as a whole deemed the prospect of someone driving above an arbitrary limit unacceptable when compared with the danger that person on average poses to others on the road.

tbhouston: Thought crime, precrime...stupid American's

[suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com image 604x453]

Link to a table of legal BAC limits by country (in Mg/ML not MG/DL like the US commonly uses). I think you have no idea what you're talking about.

So it's a crime because it is illegal...seems solid.

Think hard for a second and try to figure out what crime a drunk driver has committed..

Person A leaves a bar, drives home and goes to bed. What crime was committed? None

Person B leaves a bar and gets into an accident and kills three people. What crime was committed? Murder.


Nice try; but malum prohibitum crimes are just as much crimes as mala in se crimes. It's the price we pay for getting to live in a civil society. You may not like it that drunk driving is in and of itself a crime because "nobody got hurt", but we as a culture have decided that it's preferable to not wait until someone dies or gets maimed before we call that a "crime." Now, we as a society have also decided that the number of situations where you can preemptively be arrested before anything bad happens is fairly small--drunk driving where nobody dies, selling drugs, selling your body, some other crimes that can POTENTIALLY impact society--and those laws have redressability at the ballot box. Don't like it? Get a referendum on the ballot and have drugs, prostitution or drunk driving made legal.

You won't get many people fervently arguing that drunks ought to be allowed free license to roam the streets, unfortunately, or that they should be good to go as long as they don't hit anyone, since everyone is acutely aware the next person they hit might be them.

I wasn't specifically talking about motorcycle accidents dumbasses. I was researching accidents in general as part of motorcycle research.

Godscrack: If you're gonna snitch, you better be sure you don't have so much an overdue library book.

Like all their other snitch programs, they run a background check on you first.


Wait, what? I mean, yeah, you probably shouldn't have warrants out for you, but if you're running around knowingly avoiding warrants you probably have bigger problems in life than drunk drivers.

At the same time, I really doubt anyone who runs a background check cares about things that most people might have hanging over their head, like an overdue cell phone bill or a not up-to-date address on their drivers license. At least, in my experience the FBI, CHP, and local law enforcement haven't given a crap at all.

Why would they complain that someone else is doing their job for them?

A good citizen always reports any suspicious activity to the authorities.

I rarely drink alcohol, and I certainly don't drink and drive - but if I wanted to, no one could stop me!

Translation of the article:

Be prepared for the bonus tasering, police harassment, and double standard justice if said drunk driver happens to be a cop.

I was a kid when the cold war was going on. And I remember asking just what was so darn evil about those Russian commies.

One of the reasons i was given was that in the soviet union, citizens were encouraged to spy on eachother to root out ner-do-wells

I remember thinking what a horribly paranoid culture that must breed & boy was i glad i didnt live there.
