In the last couple of weekends, it seems like I have seen more red and blue lights flashing than ever before. The police seem to be everywhere!
They made almost a record amount of DUI stops/arrests in that same time frame. In addition to the public safety aspect, I believe that DUI/OWI represents a revenue stream that has been recognized by many local governments. In speaking with passengers that have been convicted of driving under the influence, they tell me their costs can exceed $10,000 before all is said and done.
Add to that staggering total the inconvenience of having to work with a distracting breathalyzer or restricted personal movement for a year.
I am not a fan of drunk drivers. My family was almost wiped out by one of them when I was a baby. They take chances that others may have to pay for. However, I do support the right of every eligible adult to drink alcoholic beverage to their tolerance level, whatever that may be.
Responsible drinkers arrange for transportation BEFORE they go out drinking.
