"We feel that the only way we're going to get at the drunk driving problem and the problem of people hurting each other while drunk is by crackdowns like this," [said Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission's Carolyn Beck].
"There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they're intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car," Beck said. "People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss."
|Quoting NWOrientDC10 (Thread starter):|
If this is how it is in Texas, maybe the state ought to ban alcohol altogether
|Quoting Pope (Reply 10):|
I wonder how they prove the drunkeness. It's not like operating a car where your license implies consent to a sobriety test. If the person just refuses to take any sort of sobriety test, I doubt that their refusal could be introduced against them at trial because of 5th amendment issues.
|Quoting AerospaceFan (Reply 13):|
In some countries, consumption of the formerly banned intoxicant, absinthe, is once again allowed. And yet, as far as I know, nowhere in this country will absinthe be legally consumed in public.
