So you have the foresight to ask a lawyer what to do if pulled over "after having a few," but not enough foresight to realize that driving "after having a few" is dangerous?
Hey, you have to get your car home so you can work the next day, eh?
And no, I'm not going to leave it there overnight so it can be damaged, stolen or broken into. Again,cab isn't going to cut it, I likely need to work next day. And if you're picking up a chick, you're not going to take her home in a cab or a bus, and hope to have any chance of getting laid are you?
Face is...driving after drinking is extremely common. YOu look at all those bars with all those parking lots filled with cars, and at closing time, how many cars do you see left there over night due to taking a cab or someone there staying sober to be 'designated driver'.
And no, the majority of people there leaving are NOT under the legal limit.
So, face it...driving after drinking is common, and the only way yould be able to really drop those rates, is to ban external establishments from serving alcohol. Try that and see how well that flies.
With that in mind...as a society we do allow this type of activity and it is sanctioned for the most part by society. Most everyone gets home just fine.
If a cop sees someone driving poorly, sure...stop them, but if someone is driving just fine, let them get home.
And trust me...the ONLY time I'm driving the speed limit or even bothering to keep track of what the speed is in that zone, is driving home from a bar. Its when I'm stone cold sober that I drive like a maniac.
