    No sympathy at all. It's wrong and they should not have done it. I don't get why they deserve any TBH.

    We live in a small town and we have taxi's.

    Surely you aren't suggesting it's ok to drink and drive bc there maybe no public transport? get a designated driver, walk, drink at home.... there are lots of options.

    No, you can drink as much as you like, but just because you live rurally doesn't give you a pass to drink drive.

    None.


    Don't drink and drive is a pretty easy message to remember...

    If that 'something' impacts on others then I feel sorry for those people too.

    The only time I wouldn't feel so sorry for that person would be if they routinely did it with a 'what the hell' attitude. But even then I'd still feel bad for them if they did end up injuring or killing someone.

    Guess I'm in the minority on this one though.
    When the dangers and consequences of drink driving are advertised so heavily, there is no way it can be deemed a careless decision. It is akin to premeditated murder. There is not a single driver on the roads who can say that they don't understand the risks of drink driving, and if there are, then they should not hold a license.

    Absolutely not. Not the first time. Not ever.

    It is always a stupid risk to take.

    I dont care if the person thinks they are okay to drive or it is just around the corner or whatever - it is not just their lives they are risking, but everyone else's.

    And for the people that whinge about getting caught by the cops or losing their licenses, I say, be grateful it was the cops that caught you and the only consequence was losing your license and it wasn't killing yourself or someone else on the roads.

    No, but make alternate arrangements BEFORE drinking. Have a friend pick you up, take turns with mates being a designated driver, walk home...

    I also live somewhere without public transport. Closest public transport is 257kms away. DF and I take it in turns to drink when we go out if we are driving, otherwise we walk there and home.

    Nope. Not at all. I know someone who has lost his 3 times for DD and has complained each time. It's pretty simple - don't drink and drive and you won't loose your license. I don't understand why some people don't understand that!! You're not special because you made it home. You're an idiot for putting everyone else on the road at risk.

    DD is bad where I live. The Cops must make a fortune off the idiots as there are normally between 5-10 cases of DD and/or speeding in the local paper every single week.

    I've never done it, neither has DH. And when the kids are older, I will be drilling it into them that they don't drink and drive and they do not get in a car with a driver who has been drinking under any circumstances.

    I don't care how far away they are or how late/early it is, I will go and get them than have them risk their lives and the lives of other people on the road.

    I only have sympathy for those who have suffered loss due to the stupidity of those who do drink and drive...
