    I'm glad I did my drunk driving "back in the day" - when it was taken less severely than now.

    And the irony is I drove much more cautiously when I'd had a few (most people seem to want to drive fast).

    My opinion is that a good driver with a few drinks in him is still a better driver than a marginally skilled - but sober - one!

    I will agree with that statement.

    I think it is better to be completely sober when driving, all thing being equal.

    I have driven impaired, but I too tended to drive more cautiously. I guess I had too much fear of something going wrong. I was fortunate I did not get involved in any accidents.


    Sometimes 70% of a good driver is better than 100% of a marginal driver.

    Unfortunately, if the two are involved in an accident and the "good" driver has some alcohol in system, he will be treated worse. Even if there is equal fault or more fault with the marginal driver.
    Sincerely,
