Didn't I make it clear that the couple of times in the past of driving under the influence I was NOT justifying it? Please quote where I said I was a safe drunk back 20 or 30 years ago - you won't so stop making this stuff up.
And on driving slower: colliding at 80 has at least 4x the force of colliding at 40, not to mention it takes longer to stop and less time to avoid a collision. In other words, there is doing something bad, and then there is doing it REALLY BAD. Like driving drunk, fast, reckless, and with passengers. I did one thing wrong 20 years ago - Josh Brent did at least four things wrong!
I see thru some of the posts: a number of you are uncomfortable with the Josh Brent crash because you had or currently drink and drive. Many of you are uncomfortable talking about that, in part because you are afraid of getting jumped on by flamers if you mention an isolated incident 20 years then 30 years ago.
So for those of you that drink/drive occasionally OR don't but comfortable with others that currently drink/drive - congratulations on winning the spiting match by finding out I'm not perfect - nobody is. Somehow driving when I shouldn't 20 years makes 10,000 traffic deaths in the US and 1.4 million accidents OK. And Texas is #1 on DUI fatalities.
I've been on other forums, yet they are not so soft on DUI.
