FTA: Ram Ride is the program that gives safe rides to students who've had too much to drink.

Sounds like banging a passed out chick with a condom on.

"Come one, man! Don't be a chicken! Just have a sip. What's the worst that can happen?!"


/now watch the judge make an example out of him citing the responsibility of driver's position

Knowing how this shiat goes, one person in the car was drunk and so they used that opportunity to claim everyone in the car was drunk.  They didn't blow as drunk on the breathalyzer so they arrested them and took them downtown for the blood test, to be given in a couple of days.  Then they'll be charged with DUI but allowed to plea down to a big fine anyway, or they can just pay their lawyer an even bigger fine and get off the hook for all of it.

Ram Ride sounds way too much like BangBus for me to take seriously.

Place in my town will not only give you a ride home but tow your car home for you as well.  Price is actually reasonable.

We had a trolley type car that drove around giving people rides, and the driver got a DUI one night.

Not near as fun as when we were sitting out at a housing development 20 minutes from campus and the square, getting gnarled on who knows what, and a trolley drove by.  We were all confused as hell for a while, as we didn't know it existed yet.

There's a service here in Vegas that will drive you home, in your car. I've never used the service, but I think that they have another vehicle following, to take the driver. They offer free rides every New Year's Eve.

Why was he charged with marijuana possession in Colorado?

As a recent Colorado State alum, I am slightly surprised that this happened, only because the vast majority of RamRide drivers are either:
-Christian student groups, or
-The kind of dorks that spend their Saturday nights picking up drunk people instead of going out in a town with an extremely accessible bar culture.

Of course, other student groups can take part in the service and there's no real screening process (besides your eligibility to drive, of course), so it was bound to happen eventually.

In parts of Europe they have little scooters that fit in the trunk (boot?) so they don't need a 2nd driver.

Top Gear did a segment on it

And I don't mean to talk down to people who don't drink, but the RamRide folk often are a bit judgmental to those they pick up, at least in my experiences.

In the Collegian, the ASCSU pres says there is a screening process:  http://www.collegian.com/2013/02/04/breaking-csu-ramride-car-pulled-o v er-on-suspicion-of-dui/

Either way, I lul'd when I heard the story on the news last night and thought, this deserves to make it to Fark.

This is more ironic than a firefighter committing arson, or a garbageman littering, or a cop committing assau---oh wait, scratch that last one..this is more ironic than a firefighter committing arson, or a garbageman littering.

BigGrnEggGriller: Why was he charged with marijuana possession in Colorado?


Possibly because Amendment 64 applies only to persons over 21.  He is a student, so he may well be younger than that.

It's still a pretty minor offense I believe.....I think $100 fine and the equivalent of a traffic ticket.

The DUI is much more serious.

If you're working (or volunteering) to drive drunk people home, why the hell would you speed?

Hrist: Knowing how this shiat goes, one person in the car was drunk and so they used that opportunity to claim everyone in the car was drunk.  They didn't blow as drunk on the breathalyzer so they arrested them and took them downtown for the blood test, to be given in a couple of days.  Then they'll be charged with DUI but allowed to plea down to a big fine anyway, or they can just pay their lawyer an even bigger fine and get off the hook for all of it.

It's not nearly that easy to completely get off the hook for DUI. Even back in the 1970s when George W. Bush got his, he certainly didn't get off -- the the penalties are much more stringent than they are now. If you have a pretty clean criminal record, you may be able to plea bargain your way down to something like reckless driving, but given that the guy in the article was also cited with speeding and marijuana possession at the same time, I'm afraid he's in for serious shiat. Though I'm surprised they got him for marijuana possession -- in Colorado -- isn't that legal there now? I suppose a judge may drop the speeding charge in a plea bargain, but not the DUI, especially if there's marijuana in his system.

Are you from CO?  MI still arrest people for marijuana possession.  Here you have to have a medicinal card and a limited amount on your person.  Unless they make it 100% legal, people will still get busted.

Hey I know this is a stale thread and hardly anyone will see this comment, but the guy had NOT been drinking, just toking.

He was interviewed on the news last night and admitted he was a dumbass and said he thought he could "control" his marijuana habit.

He also said he quit toking.

I hope he was planning to plead guilty because he openly admitted to the crime on TV.
