    I still don't understand why people drive drunk, or buzzed, or tipsy. If you're not giving your full concentration to the task of getting into a car and getting yourself (and possibly friends/loved ones) to another destination then don't do it! I honestly don't get why people willfully put lives at risk.

    Maybe it's time that they invent a device that can detect high alcohol levels and lock down the vehicle, which may only be released by some authority.

    I think drunk driving is one of the big issues in modern societies, alongside drug abuse. When a person gets drunk in the safety of his own home, he may only be a danger to himself and/or family members. But when he is drunk and takes control of a vehicle, he becomes a danger to society at large.
