    E x a c t l y.

    If asked, "how many have you had this evening", most people -- and athletes too -- will say, "two, three..." or, "Uh, I don't know". Which in this context, are both perfect answers! But once in a while you'll find the true / honest response. Watch this video ending, it's funny. So funny it makes it dead serious.

    First typical thing to say: "Let me get one thing straight - I have not been drinking..."

    NOTE: In all fairness to this man though, I'd have a terrible time 'reciting the alphabet from Z to A, in any language!'

    No such thing as a 'Best drunk driver ever..!'

    Nothing 'best' about pulling the remains of a 5yr old child out from under a wheel arch having been run over by a DUI.

    Or removing the mutilated cadaver of an eight months pregnant 22yr old lady from twisted wreckage, killed after a DUI driver (whom always seem to survive these crashes) hit her head on. Later having to tell her parents (and expectant grandparents) at 0345hrs in the morning of there daughter and grandchild's death.

    I should know. I've done exactly these during my time (18yrs) as a British police officer.

    My personal rule:

    If I'm driving, I either (a) don't drink at all, or (b) limit myself to one drink if its with a meal and there is at least 1 hour between my finishing the drink and getting behind the wheel.

    Would I impose my own personal standards on everyone else?

    Hell yeah I would.
