I was thinking about this earlier today after reading a story about a guy who had entered into a business contract while he was drunk. When he didn't follow through with the duties he said he would, he was sued and taken to court. The man was able to prove that he had been drunk though and the court nullified the contract because he wasn't in a proper state of mind when he signed into the deal. How is it different for drunken driving? Wouldn't the same argument hold true, that the individual was not in the right state of mind when they made the decision to drive? Now I'm not defending drinking and driving by any means and I imagine that argument is that people could be seriously injured or die from the decision to drink and drive, but legally it seems like a strange double standard.
