What is wrong with people? How hard is it to understand that you don't drink and drive! These people have money for a cab, so WTF?!

I live in Harris County, TX. I think we have THE highest drunk driving rates in the country. We need stronger penalties. What we're doing now just isn't working.

He should have done this in FL, there even if you kill someone while being drunk and driving, you only get 30 days in jail. Especially if you are an NFL player.

Echoing the 'hire a limo, cheapass' sentiment. Then you can get drunk, act like a fool, and help the economy, all at the same time.

Selfish prig.
