Good to hear that you are ok... but regardless of fault, you rode off. That may be the only thing that the driver remembers next time they see a cyclist.

Let's make a short list...
1. riding a bike while you were drunk.
2. posting on Bike Forums that you rode a bike while you were drunk.

To the OP... As I'm sure you are aware, there are many problems facing our society in this day and age. Equal rights on the road for cyclists is one that I, like others find very near and dear to my heart. If you want these rights and protection while on the road, know the law and such. A minor "bump", be it minor, should still be addressed appropriately. Live your life.

The OP is as brilliant as the guy who loudly tells his buddy in public in presence of several strangers that he just got out of jail as if spending time behind bars was a cool thing.

y'all don't ride drunk better than you walk drunk?! I know I do.

I often ace a mile-ride home only to stumble around the courtyard of my building once I get there.

You're still lucky, I'll bet.

I used to have a roommate who drove home so drunk that he had no idea how he actually got home.

His shining moment was when, because he didn't know that he wasn't in the bathroom, he pooped on the chair. Never mind the vomit in the middle of the carpet.
