Outlander Engine: Aigoo: Fast forward 2 years later, and I"m back on the road and all is good. I went to my brothers house to have a drink with him, and I knew it was going to be a big one, so I organised to stay the night there, and we had a good night. The next morning, I knew I was still drunk, so I waited. I ate some breakfast. I drank lots of water and coffee. I waited some more. And I kept on waiting. The little breathalyzer thingy we had showed us all slowly sobering up, and people would gradually leave as they got under their threshold BAC level. As I was on my probationary licence again (back on it as I'd previously lost it), again, I had to give a reading of 0.00%. Our breathalyzer finally showed me at zeroes, and still I waited another hour, just to be sure.

It was about 3:30pm when I finally got into the car, and w ...

Like T.M.S., you clearly state that you have a problem with not staying the fark out from behind the wheel after drinking enough to make you clearly intoxicated (at least legally, if not physically), so I fail to see the problem. Learn to sit in the passenger seat after consuming alcohol and you'll stay out of prison and keep your license.


So he;
1) Stayed the night and had breakfast the next morning.
2) Used an instrument to double check that he was sober enough to drive.
3) Waited an extra hour just to make sure.

He doesn't have a problem. You're another one with a reading comprehension problem. Go park with the other guy till you sober up enough to post.


And he says it's not fair that if he has a beer and drives, it's prison time. I'm very consistent on this: use a designated driver, call a cab, walk, I don't give a fark. But whatever you do, do not drive after drinking. I am utterly implacable on this because I was nearly killed by a drunk driver.

So go fark yourself, asswipe. When you spend over a year re-learning how to farking walk and the rest of your life dealing with the consequences of some other asshole's choice to drive after what they call "a few drinks" (she blew a .21 three hours AFTER the wreck!), then you can tell me how I should feel or think. Until then, I haven't a shred of pity for any individual who gets behind the wheel after even one SIP of alcohol. I have never done it even one time, and I will never pity anyone who has, nor condone it. You drink and drive, I hope with every fiber of my being you are charged with attempted vehicular homicide and sentenced accordingly, because you made a choice to take my life and the lives of every other person on the roads into your drunken hands.

It was about 3:30pm when I finally got into the car, and was pulled over literally 500m from my brothers house. 0.064%.
None of this meant anything to the court of course. And I guess that's fair enough in it's way ...

In other words you has issues with drinking and driving and if you do it again you go to jail. I don't see the problem here.



Looks like you have a reading comprehension problem. Maybe you should park it until that clears up....

Sleeping Monkey: DUI laws are in place to profit from drunk driving, not to stop it.



That is 100% CORRECT! It is alllllll about money. Elderly drivers are MUCH more dangerous than someone with a 0.15 BAC. Does MADD care? No. All states should RAISE their bullcrap "impaired" driving limit back up to 0.15 because that is when people ARE drunk.

Father_Jack: Begoggle: Seize their vehicles and sell them.

i would be ok with this if the money used by seizing the vehicles was used to provide cab vouchers for bars so people wouldnt have to drive.

while noone should drink and drive, in a lot of communities, you dont really have much choice. doesnt excuse it but it explains it to a certain extent.


What a crock of bullshiat. You ALWAYS have a choice. If you can't get home without driving, don't drink. So no, it doesn't explain it. What explains it is that people simply don't want to be responsible regardless of their constant bleating that they are.

If you really want to piss off the cops pull a U-turn before a roadblock when you are sober. They'll pull two squad cars away from the roadblock just to chase you down and then get nothing on the breath tester.

Jerry Fuchs is sober and looking forward to September.

That's when the retired General Motors worker will have his name, address and mug shot removed from a website created by the Janesville Police Department that maps city residents who have five or more drunken driving convictions.


For Fuchs' sake, take him off the map!

Generation_D: Lucky he hasn't killed anyone besides himself yet. Permanently pull the license.


I agree. And by your argument, gun owners should be arrested and permits revoked too.

Who knows who they 'might' kill. You never know. Better get them now.
