"Didn't know," not "didn't let."

Whiz, I didn't let they let you out of your facility long enough to see anyone else drive. Just as many guys as women talk and text while they drive, and there are a lot of guys who shave in the car on the way to work, so give the gals a break. Besides, men are more likely to drive aggressively and exhibit road rage, so I think it evens out between bad male and female drivers.

Happy New Year to all!

It's a good cause. Now all you gotta do is convince the drunks who are driving to NOT run into your "Safe Ride" home..

As reports go, many of them are of a "Drunk Crossing the Center Line", or "Plowing through folks walking on the side of the road"

So, the 'SAFEST Ride' might be in a Tank or Armored vehicle..

And though it's for a 'good cause' - it does promote Alcohol Consumption and Abuse.

Be safe out there, take the ride and hope whoever is driving is watching out for, 'the other guy' on the road...

Most boozer’s, abuser’s and druggies,

know themselves, also know they can’t drink, and they can’t drive,

either if on one, or the others, or in combination.

Add to the mix, the bobble-headed br.oads driving the roads, talking, texting, combing their always do-do hair do’s, or primping something else along the way,

except paying attention to the road.

Who in he.ll ever, EVER, gave them a license to primp and do everything else young hair-brained boble-headed br.oads do behind the wheel these days?

What is forgotten is the fact that all of the above,

still drive, and insist upon getting behind the wheel until they cause injury.

Insist that they walk, otherwise shutter them behind safety gates and bars… just saying

I'll have the best drinks, drugs, and safety, happily and safely ensconced away from the boozer’s, drunkards, hair-brained women drivers, and druggies, shelved here away in this home pending the inevitable….

Keeping drunk drivers off the road just may save dizzywig's life.

How about free rides for those responsible enough to call for a ride when they realize they shouldn't be driving. Just a couple of drinks is enough to affect driving ability; I hardly think that qualifies someone as a "boozer." Try finding something good to say for once about someone besides the liberal elite.
