Drink up drunk driving should be legalized

Drink Up - Drunk Driving Should be Legalized

Drunk driving should be legalized in the United States to help improve

our standard of living. The legalization of driving while intoxicated would

severely reduce the numbers of crimes that are committed on the roads. The

number of illegal actions occurring on the roads would be reduced by the number

of people that used to break the law by driving while drunk. Allowing people to

drive drunk would also reduce the number of accidents occurring on the road

systems. For example, only twenty percent of all auto accidents involve a

person who has been drinking, where as almost all accidents involve someone who

has not been drinking. Removing the restrictions against drinking would remove

most of the eighty percent of the accidents that do not involve alcohol. Also,

the accidents that would still be occurring would not have as many injuries.

Out of the accidents that involve alcohol the person who has been drinking is

usually the one who survives the accident, often with out a scratch. Allowing

people who have been drinking to drive would also improve the quality of life

for those who choose not to drink. Currently people who have been drinking are

legally required to use some form of transportation other than them operating a

motor vehicle. This requires them to hang around where they are and get a ride

with someone else or wait or some public transportation. With the legalization

of driving while drunk the non-drinking population would not need to be bothered

by drunk people that do not have rides. Finally, this would help stimulate the

economy which may be in dire trouble. For example, with the removal of

restrictions on alcohol, many more alcoholic beverages would be sold because a

new group of possible customers would be open to this industry. Also, if drunks

could drive themselves home there would be less need of people going to a party

to take only one car, more cars being driven would cause more gasoline to be

sold, improving the economy through sales of gasoline. Allowing people, who

have been drinking, to drive would greatly improve the living style of people in

this country.
