NO ONE SHOULD BE DRIVING IF THEY ARE INTOXICATED! I HAVE NO RIGHT TO STOP SOMEONE WHO CHOOSES TO HARM THEMSELVES(PLEASE, NOTE….THAT IS A SEPARATE TOPIC OF CONCERN THAT IS NOT ADDRESSED IN THIS POST) WHAT IS FOCUSED ON – IS THAT IT’S NOT ALRIGHT TO PUT OTHERS IN DANGER
With that being said, I’ll now go into something that needs clarification and revisions to prevent inaccurate or unnoticed applications
Let’s start with the general association of BAC -Blood Alcohol Content with Intoxication…. From my understanding, this is not a logical or proper association. BAC might we an indicator to suspect intoxication, but in not way does a scientific calculation of alcohol % in the blood correlate to defining a physiological condition. Intoxication refers to function of mental & motor skills being (intoxicated) (impaired) (influenced) or any other “change” to “normal” ability of function. *I’m almost positive that LAW defines it close to the way I have just explained…..
—Here is some of my concerns
1-Think of someone you know that is “tipsy” after a glass of wine. Now if they are around 160 pounds and had 1 glass of wine they would have a BAC much lower than .05….. I’m going to say likely .03 tops…… SO THAT MEANS THAT A “TIPSY” PERSON HAS BEEN LEGALLY OK TO DRIVE BY REFERENCE TO BAC.
2-WHY ISN’T A OVERTIRED DRIVER WHO IS FIGHTING SLEEP AND POSSIBLY FALLING ASLEEP WHILE DRIVING CHARGED WITH SIMILAR CRIMINAL CHARGES? THEY ARE JUST AS DANGEROUS IF NOT MORE
3- WELL—- 1 & 2 IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME—-
DANGEROUS AND FUNCTIONAL IMPAIRED DRIVERS SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING! WE SHOULD START TO INCLUDE OTHER “UNRECOGNIZED” BY LAW, YET EQUALLY IF NOT MORE DANGEROUS.
THERE IS WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE “LICENSED” TO DRIVE, THAT SHOULD NOT BE ! EVEN SOBER, THEY ARE A DANGER TO OTHERS, AND LACK THE ABILITY TO SAFLEY OPERATE A MOTOR VEHICLE.
