the post below about dude with 4 owi's go made me wondering the frequency of this. no need to say directly if you do (even though your identity is hidden as a screen name).
i know of almost no one who will actually line up a d.d. or call a friend (no cabs where i live, 7mi to nearest bar).
a guy who works around here is rumored to have had 5 owi's. can't verify the concreteness of the rumor, but i think he has had to do a fair amount of jail time for the most recent one. odd thing is he lives in a small city where you could call a cab.
odd thing i learned while taking some alcohol classes back in undergrad. the cops said buzzed drivers tend to be way worse than completely wasted drivers. reason: buzzed drivers refuse to think they are a legitimate danger, but when you are completely wasted you have a higher tendency to know you are a risk. completely wasted drivers (they said) often get pulled over for being too slow and deliberate. driving way below speed limit, always signaling, etc.
