While I agree with you in principle, unfortunately we are losing almost 50,000 American citizens every year in alcohol induced accidents. Some folks cannot help being incorrigible detriments to society. Pathetic, really.
After working the nightclub scene almost daily for over 12 years in several cities, I would have to disagree with a real police presence being there in that manner. I believe I've seen more sobriety checkpoints in movies as opposed to in person.
That's a horrific number to hear. I'm glad I did not contribute to a statistic like that, as ashamed as I am about it, I have driven drunk myself back when I was younger.
