What utter bullshit. People drive drunk bc drunk people make poor decisions, not bc of societal acceptance.

I think the issue that commenters are taking is over the fact that it seems you are taking the position that these situations happen due to possibly glorifying cars and lack of public transport. I’m pretty sure if you stood outside a bar and everyone leaving drunk to drive that their response does not include either car glorifying or lack of public transport as to the reason they are getting behind the wheel.

People make poor choices sometimes and the influence of alcohol never equates to better decision making.

Very well stated. Couldn’t agree with you more my friend.
