They don't mess around here in Texas with DUI/DWI as well. I think that's pretty much the case nation wide.
I learned long ago to drink my beer at home and not drive. Don't get me wrong, I use to drink & drive in my younger days and I thank God I never had an accident or ever received a DUI. It's just not worth it today on so many levels.
I prefer to drink at home... If I do go out though and drink with friends, we always get a cab home. Hell its more fun and relaxing that way, not having to worry about who is the least drunk or risking it by driving home, or during the warmer months we actually walk. I miss summer
