Around here, drivers are incredibly aggressive; always in a hurry. Typical lifestyle around here, unfortunately -- the roads have become a very dangerous place.

So what's their excuse? They're impatient idiots!

Yes, most are by people who are not drunk. But most fatal accidents are caused by drunk drivers.

EDIT: Woops, I mean more crashes caused by drunk drivers are fatal than those who crash that are not drunk.

They're the reason for the fuel crisis. Slowly crawling behind them is the real gas-guzzler.

The State of Illinois seriously needs to crack down on elderly drivers, mostly competency testing. But Rod Blagojevich wouldn't ever do anything to make that a reality.

LOLz. When their eyes can't see a framerate of more than 5 at 50 feet, maybe it's time they put their liscence through the shredder. If they have one... :lol:

Honestly, I agree. There's a good amount of people I encounter that should not behind the wheel of any vehicle. Reaction time is of paramount importance, as is situational awareness.

True, but more than half of fatal road accidents are caused by sober drivers.

I would agree with you, he does seem to be quite well spoken although I havent seen any of his guns I'm sure he's probabably smarter than me aswell.

I was just trying to get him to see that not everyone gets affected by alcohol that much and If theres a choice between paying 40 bucks for a taxi then having to return the next day to pick up my car, I'll probly take my chances on the road if I feel like Im up to it.

Also something tells me his opinion will change in 3 or 4 years when he turns 18 or 21 depending on where he lives, and his taste buds start to mature, I remember at 15 I didn't really like beer or spirits but as you get older you seem to aquire the taste.
