Drunk Driving: A License To Kill    (Continued)

So what is "drunk driving" anyway? The legal definitions of drunk driving are open to many interpretations, which vary greatly from state to state. In some places, "drunk driving" can include sitting in a parked car or wrecked vehicle with the motor not running, or starting up a car in a driveway. The police can and do arrest people who they believe are drunk before they even get on the road and when they've pulled off to "sleep it off" if they're in the driver's seat.

As for a definition of "drunk" there are many factors to consider. You can be "legally impaired" in the eyes of the law without even taking a drink, if you have taken other substances that affect your ability to drive. You can also be found drunk even when you have all your facilities in perfect working order.

No Nikhil37. Just No. It is fine as it is. The two licenses would be repetitive.

I like how you mentioned that drunk driving is not a mistake, but a choice. I also like the idea that people should be treated for their alcohol dependency from jail so, they can get it through their heads not to drive drunk.I have always been against drunk driving but, you made me think of it in a different way. It is unfortunate that people have to die in order for us to change our ways.
