Reading some critiques about the organization MADD I remember how the cliché “non-profit does not mean chump money for its leaders” - just like that f’tard Joseph Kennedy II and his ~$600K meager salary with his organization CITIZENS ENERGY.
When I was young the BAC level for most states was .15 – not saying that was right.
But with all these MADD “reforms” instituted - there are still stories about DUI arrests in which it is the perpetrator’s seventh or 8th time being brought before a judge????
If - as a twenty-one+ something in my prime, bar-hopping, slut-chasing American male - I drive “impaired” under the influence of alcohol say twenty times a year - then I am a dumb ass sinner.
But what about all the age 75+ drivers out there who are ALWAYS impaired whenever they take the wheel?
How many local police blotter stories do you hear of a eighty-year old widow driver who drives her American-made land yacht thru a strip mall beauty parlor window and tells the responding officer “the starter got stuck!”
Well Granny… maybe you looked like this video babe back during the 1950s when some vehicles still had starter pedals – but that was a LONG TIME AGO.
You are a menace to everyone on the road – but old people vote – and our politicians are sheep.

Statistically, drivers under 24 are 7.5x as likely to be in a an accident than a person over 75. They're 3x as likely to be in a fatal accident.

When accident rates are calculated per mile driven, elevated rates are
observed among the youngest and oldest dnvers. For example, drivers 16-19 had 3.0
times the overall risk of fatal involvement, and drivers 75 and over had 3.8 times the
overall risk in 1990. Considering all police-reported accidents, teenage drivers had
3.3 times the overall risk, and the oldest drivers had 2.0 times the overall risk per

I can't believe that there are grown adults in this thread trying to justify their drink driving.
I'm truly fucking disgusted.
