This can be answered by anyone who wishes to answer it. But it is mainly directed at those that heavily opposed me in the helmet law thread I posted.
This has to do with people who drink alcohol & drive a motor vehicle at the same time. Let me make it a little more clearer for you. It has to do with people that are physically drinking a can of beer or other type of alcoholic beverage & it is obvious they are doing so while driving of which after witnessing it you have no doubt as to what that person is doing.
Keep in mind if you see this person doing this they are probably next to you in traffic, you might even be on your bike at the time. They could even be crossing an intersection in front of you, or making a left turn toward you.
Do you think if someone calls the police because they witness this very illegal behavior from another person, is the person who calls the authorities being a "safety nanny"? Or infringing on the rights of others? Or taking away another persons freedom? Or better yet putting themselves in the person's, who is illegally drinking alcohol & driving a car, business? Please answer honestly if you would.
Now let me tell you what I have done & will continue to do when I have witnessed this behavior from someone else. I call the police on my cell phone, give a description of the vehicle & the person drinking. If I can I follow the car with the police on the line until a cop shows up to pull the person over. I inform where me & the person drinking & driving are at.
Bottom line, at least in my opinion, is if you drink & drive you put my life & safety at risk plus the lives & safety of my family & everyone else on the road. And I will do everything in my power to prevent it.
Ok now those that oppose this kind of thing go ahead & speak up. I hope to GOD no one thinks calling the police on someone for drinking & driving is a bad idea. But with some of the people in this crowd I actually would not be surprised if you did feel that way. So let's here it.
