Did you ever consider, our society might be awash with money, to make up for all the productivity and related losses that don't occur in the first place because there's that much less DUI? I betcha the drain on our society from DUI is staggering. Without meaning to, you just made the best argument yet in favor of these dam cars. I won't like these cars no matter what, and maybe people will just find a new way to throw their work lives away (having been deprived of the most straightforward and common way of doing it) but a society with do DUI related losses is a well off society needing less intervention. The police officer could be counseling a young kid instead of spending his hours at work instead of stepping over fragments of bone and pools of human bodily fluids - measuring off the skidmarks for the "accident" report. I'm editing to clarify: Talking about the economic loss from the driving while drunk, the driving and the wrecks, and not the economic expense/revenue from enforcement of DUI laws.
