We need to create that attitude in our society and have that personal and social responsibility brought back and taught. It starts with you and me just saying something. "Hey buddy, you have had enough to drink, any more and you will hurt your health. I am your friend and I care about you."

In civilized countries, a single glass of wine with your meal is simply a part of the meal, and a bottle should be good for several meals.

Don't judge me!
Not only are we not taught to take responsibility for ourselves, but we're taught to not take an interest in others lest you offend them or others.

No doubt. My wife weighs 115 and can drink more than that and still function. She's not even a regular drinker and only cuts loose on occasion, but when she does she can certainly hold her alcohol better than that guy.

The The Oklahoma Highway Safety office has budgeted $77,000 to destroy St. Patrick's Day tourism   keep people safe, by setting up a "command post" in the Blue Dome district and paying overtime to those that can meet the arrest goals.

Maybe if the Oklahoma Highway Safety office were to look at crumbling bridges instead...

Maybe you should be appreciative that you haven't lost anyone to a drunk driver.   Ask the crowd at SXSW that got plowed into how they feel about drunks.   Fuckwit.

SXSW? This?

SXSW car crash: Another case of police high-speed pursuit gone awry?
Austin police pursued Rashad Charjuan Owens after he avoided a police traffic stop. Owens soon crashed into a crowd of people at the South by South West festival, killing two and injuring 23. Should the police have pursued Owens?
http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/USA-Update/2014/0315/SXSW-car-crash-Another-case-of-police-high-speed-pursuit-gone-awry-video
The city of Austin already faces a $1 million wrongful-death lawsuit filed earlier this month by the widow of a man killed when a suspect pursued by police crashed into the car driven by her husband.


AUSTIN — Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said Thursday that officials will review the department's pursuit policy after a man he said was fleeing an officer plowed through a crowd of people who were on a street that was blocked off to traffic for South by Southwest.

As long as the goal is to prevent drunks driving and not just to generate revenue and meet arrest quotas, it's money well spent.

Yup...  And don't let that article fool you (from later in the article)  "Other observers have noted that in this SXSW case its unlikely that either the police or the driver reached excessive speeds."

Rashad Charjuan Owens allegedly tore through the crowd while drunk, running over people and hitting other cars. At least 23 others were injured.

Winner.
It's too bad DUI became more of an industry than a public safety crisis, but then, that might be what got the funding flowing.

Smoot made it clear that someone who is "causing a problem" and is drinking in a bar can be arrested for public intox. No breathalyzer, no testing, just the officers opinion. In a time of increasing intolerance for nonconformity, that is a fine line imo and one that concerns me.

Only made worse when people who shape public opinion believe that self-serving handouts and ride-alongs are hard-hitting news:

Loved the vest Smoot was wearing when interviewed last night with the “police” badge screen printed on the front. Anyone know if he carries the cap gun and tin handcuffs that came with it?
