      Honestly people need to stop being such idiots and stop putting the rest of the city in danger. If your going to drink STAY OUT OF YOUR CAR! There is no excuse for it! I hope the cops stay on the roads until they get every last one of these morons there have been way to many drunk drivers lately.
