ok so it's coming on New Year's Eve...some of you will be out partying and sipping champagne...you won't eat the whole day so that you'll look skinny in your tuxedos...some of you may nod off at a stop light...it's ok because according to our esteemed Judge Brian Hill, when the light turns green, you got up to 30 seconds for a cat nap before you need to step on the gas pedal and go, baby...
you see, Judge Brian Hill, journalism hack Peter Lance and drunk driver lawyer Darryl Genis are trying to make it easier for you to kill someone DUI...and then when the cops arrest you can always sue them and the City of SB for civil rights violations..how dare they pull over drunk drivers!!! especially on New Year's Eve!! geez
now, I'm looking over California DUI laws and yes it's true you can drink and drive..up to 0.08 percent blood alcohol level..what does this mean?
Drunk Driving Laws in California
While Driving in the State of California, the following is illegal:
Drivers under 21 may not drive with a blood alcohol concentration level (BAC) of .01 or higher.
Drivers Under 21 may not consume alcohol in any form, including cough syrup, and prescription drugs.
Any driver may not drive with a BAC of .08 or higher.
The drive of any vehicle requiring a commercial driver license may not drive with with a BAC of .04 percent or higher
A driver under 18, may not drive with ANY measurable blood alcohol concentration.
Repeat offenders may not drive with a BAC of .01 or Greater
ok so this is not about Prohibition, it's about personal responsibility which nowadays appears to be a rare thing..the easy thing is to blame someone else for your stupidity...don't do that, ok?
now if you pour too many drinks you may get poured into taxi, or worse drive yourself home
so let's say I'm a dude who likes to party.. I go out drinking you know to feel more manly...I party for three hours, and I have 10 shots of 78 proof Triple Sec....my BAC is about 0.14 so I probably shouldn't drive although it may be the manly thing to do.....
now if I'm a chick and I weigh in at 125 lbs and have four Heineken Darks at 5.17 % alcohol in three hours of partying, my BAC is 0.13 and I should stay away from the wheel...
and skinny margaritas
