when you drink, you lose your sense of reality. people who aren't drunk yet think they're ok, and if they're tolerance is high, they probably are, but if they get pulled over anyway, they could get a ticket, or even go to jail.

Two words.

Not thinking.


From what I've understood, well from whats happened and what a suriviving friend told me from a drinking and driving accident is that they don't even consider themselves intoxicated when they really are. So they get into a vehical and drive themselves home. Being stubborn is really when something like this will shine though and just the fact that some people can't deal with the fact that they ARE drunk.

Which is why I tell my friends "If your drunk, call me and I'll take you home" I make sure to tell everyone I know this because I don't want friends to drive themselves home drunk. I at least hope that they are responsible enough not to travel themselves by vehical when they are intoxicated.

hum... stupidity, not thinking... all of those reason i think...

*note to self... ask my father (yes he lost his driving license because he drank and drove ~_~ )*

in my father's case, i think either he just didn't care, or he felt he could handle alcohol better than anyone else in the world... it sucks... he even told me once that he drank while driving the car... >_> and to know he drove, drunk, with me in the car when i was a kid... i guess i could say i'm lucky, and he is as well, coz' he never actually was involved in an accident... i am glad he was arrested for it though, i mean, it seems to have given him some sense of reality... hopefully, the day he gets his license back, if such a day ever comes, he will have learned his lesson... ^^

stupidity makes drunk ppl drive. stupidity make sober people get drunk. it's a crappy truth that stupid people do stupid things.

Drinking and driving is senseless and just plain dumb!! A girl from my school died in September because the guy she was driving in the car with was drunk. She was a good student and was only 16. It just makes me so mad to think that people can jepordize other peoples lives like that. They need to take into consideration that evertime you drive drunk, it's like you're holding someone's life on a thin string and any minute it could break. I wish people would be more considerate >_<

I agree. Drinking reduces your train of thought, and you're subject to doing things you wouldn't normally do. It's not worth it to drive after taking a drink. You're putting yourself at risk for arrest and, even worse, death.

Because you drink doesn't necessarily mean that you're an idiot. You could be the smartest person in the world, but when you drink, you lose your train of thought. Drinking too much will do that to you...my last drink made me quit, I'll tell you that.

To tell if someone is drunk, make sure their breath doesn't smell like alcohol, and make sure their eyes don't look weary. If both conditions are true, then that person is drunk. Take it from me. I will save your life when you think about my words.

Drinking is wrong to me. I've seen it bring the worst out of people.

Why they drink, I have no idea, and I probably will never even know remotely for the rest of my life. That's not me. Drinking and driving - that's a shame. People. **Sighs** Wrecking other lives - what a waste and a load of garbage, I suppose. I'd deal with depression some other way. If I can tackle it mentally and head on and overcome it without any depressant, that's my alternative here.

Funny that people should die so young.
Drinking is not that fun at all, and drinking is not going to wash your bitter memories away.

stupidity has nothing to do with the drinking and driving part well unless the person is a stupid..
stupidty only comes into play when people let themselves get wasted like that
when your drunk you cant blame a person for doing stupid things but you can blame them for
getting drunk...
being drunk does impare you senses and you judgement so if someone drinks and drives
they would mostly not have done it if they weren't drunk..

In some cases, parents give a curfew and the person will try to make it back in time, despite being drunk. Other times there just isn't a designated driver.

You're not supposed to drive when drunk because of impaired judgement. It's not wonder that someone that's drunk drives because of ... impaired judgement. They apparently think it's all right when it isn't.

There's nothing wrong with drinking responsibly. There're certain levels of drinking effects: buzzed, drunk, and wasted. Taking in a little alcohol to loosen the tongue and stimulate conversation is one of the most common things. Getting drunk tends to be for parties, which should, in theory, happen very rarely for very special occassions. Even still, precautions should be taken. Getting wasted on the otherhand, is dumb. Taking it that far just has no benefits.

That's because they're
~ stupid, or
~ too stupidized to think clearly.

The last fact is perhaps the hardest to avoid, because some people lose completely their mind faculties with little alcohol. In fact, sometimes we have agreements like this: I don't drink, I hold your car's keys, you go get wasted, I'll never give them to you, even if I have to throw pepper spray on your eyes to keep you under control, even if you beat the shite out of me in the worst way possible.

I believe that sums up my view on this.

Quote by melmachine18Because you drink doesn't necessarily mean that you're an idiot


Those remarks don't resemble what their saying. The title of the thread is "why do people drink and drive" and the context of the author states that the title refers to the hurtful outcomes of it. And you're right, drinking doesn't make you stupid, but doing stupid thinks like drinking while under the influence of alcohol DOES make you an idiot.

Quote by Chopstickzstupidity has nothing to do with the drinking and driving part well unless the person is a stupid


Negative ghost rider. Stupidity comes into play when they KNOW what they're getting into and know the effects of drinking while impaired. But you're right, let us blame the drink for what they did and NOT the person themselves for making the decision to drink excessively. What you state throws accountability and responsibility out the window. And further more, it begs the question of how they acquired their drivers license.

I'm sorry that your cousin got killed by a drunk driver. You want to know why they do that? Cause they are the most dumist shit in the world that's why. They don't know how to take responsibilaty into there own hand so they end up killing someone. And the only way there going to knock some sense into there head is if you smack them or they end up killing someone. It's people like that who make the world such a mornful place.

Some of them simply have no friends, so there are no designated drivers. And without friends, there's no-one to stop them from doing stupid stuff. I always take the wheel or tell my friends not to drive if they're drunk.

Someone say he drink and drive because he think he drive better, with less care (for example for the distance with the other cars).
But if they have less care it's because they are less prudent!

I agree that that is one factor for people with no friends. Even if they had friends, they might still drive home. They believe that they will be seen as weak by asking for someone to drive them home. They believe that the consequences for asking for help is greater than the consequences for driving. Their judgement is impared because they are under the influence of alcohol.

Because they're idiots, there is nothing wrong with it if you know when to stop drinking, but if you can't, that only makes you the biggest idiot in this world.
