Do you drink and drive/ride?
Edit:The poll question is ambiguous. The question does not include drinking and driving/riding responsibly. Do you drive/ride under the influence is what I meant to ask.
I was reading the thread “Drunk driving time again in Taiwan.” Good to see that some people are aware of the dangers on the road, especially at this time of year. Statistically, there is a substantial increase in fatalities related to DUI during the holiday season back home. CNY is the most celebrated holiday in Taiwan, and I’m guessing that the stats are showing the same increase. Very valid reminder in the above mentioned thread.
Do any of you go out sometimes? (doh!) Do you stay out late sometimes? How often do you see people actually getting into a taxi after a night out? I seldom do. What I see is “happy” people getting in their cars or on their scooters. Scary isn’t it?
Please vote honestly. No one will know it’s you…
The last time I rode a bike drunk, I was 16 years old. I headed home from a staff party where I worked during the summer. I lived only 2 kilometers from my summer job. Other staff members were questioning my ability to ride home… “I’llz be fiinne. I’mm onnly goin th hree blocks down da road.”
What an idiot… The very first turn… I wiped out. Three months rehabilitation and three years worth of savings at 5 bucks an hour mangled in the form of a totaled new bike. I still have the scars to show for it and I have not gotten close to wheels when I’m drunk since then. Luckily no one else got hurt…
