is really cuntish. Really extremely cuntish, right?
It's one of the most cuntish acts inevitable.
The most dangerous place to be is in the front passenger seat of a car driven by a drunk driver as their final action tends to be a selfish one, they swerve their side of the vehicle away from the collision frequently killing their passenger in a bid to save their own life.
Anyone caught over the limit should lose their licence.
I completely agree.
You really shouldn't be drinking heavily if you have to drive within 12 hours of the last drink. Eevryone always says 'Oh, it doesn't effect me, I'll be alright to drive', but, you just don't know that.
You can guarantee that the overwhelming majority of those who have killed people whilst DUI were full of the usual 'just a few' or 'it wasn't my fault' excuses.
Think about how many shit drivers there are on the road, people who even when totally sober wouldn't think twice about driving 360 degrees around a roundabout in the outside lane or pulling out at a junction without sufficient space or any attempt to indicate. Then imagine what they must be like when they're knackered after a night out.
The law is there for a reason.
I think the correct ratio is that it takes an hour to absorb one unit of alcohol, so if you had 8 pints, and finished drinking 10 ( pints equals 12 units) you should drive until 10 the following morning.
Really heavy night for me would probably mean 16-20 units, and in at 4 so....yeah midnight the next night.
Good job I don't drive anymore.
also only whilst you're awake.
IIRC whilst you're asleep it's 2 hours per unit.
i pretty much agree. it's pretty fair.
though i have, of course, driven the morning after when clearly not quite with it. nearly had a crash and all.
i guess it's for the best i don't have a car anymore really, i'm a danger!
and one of them he almost died. yet he still drunk drives. i can't believe he's allowed to have his licence.
Less so than others.
