It's too bad the drunk didn't kill herself. There is no excuse for this type of behavior if you drink I don't care if it's one beer don't get in a vehicle and risk killing someone else. Think about it, is that beer worth your life or someone else's?

...technology will soon transport our drunken butts home us in driverless smart vehicles ...only snag, if the car drifts slightly left of center and is found to be powered by ethanol additives ???

She'll probably be appearing in Judge Conway's courtroom. If this is the case, don't expect any justice to be served. I pray that the victim makes a complete recovery.
