Re: Drinking/Intoxicated clarified in Penal Code?

In her case she was convicted because she was driving erratically but most importantly because she was returning two friends, one of whom was passed out, back to their cars so they could drive home. If she had the normal use of her faculties, she would have called a cab for her friend who obviously would not be able to drive safely.
Very interesting. I had not considered that could be a factor.

Bigity - To answer your question directly. No, the laws concerning drinking/intoxication were not changed. :tiphat:
