Drink up

Drink Up

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.
