Compliments of the UK.
One campaign after another to stop drunk driving seems to make little to no difference. As much as you might not like it, we need to make automobiles more autonomous. Pretty soon the automatic braking you see featured in many luxury cars will filter down to the mainstream and even entry level cars too.
A. holy crap
B. while i don't advocate driving drunk in the least bit, had i been in their situation at the time of the "demonstration" i'm not sure if i would have paralleled a head being smashed through a bathroom mirror and drunk driving. granted they're at a bar of some sort, and thats what happens when you crash but id be pretty freaked out with no warning or conversation about drunk driving post the head coming through the mirror and thats probably what i would be focused on, not not driving home that night. if anything; and had i been drinking/drunk, i'd definitely think i was being ****ed with. i'd walk out, gather my buddies to check it out, go back to drinking.. or home to change without drunk driving crossing my mind because of it
A good Lawyer in US of A would have a field day w this.
Camera in the bathroom,Traumatizing people causing mental and health issues and im sure couple of other things can be added up. You gotta love our legal system.
We don't need smarter cars, we need bigger penalties. First time offender, 5yr probation and loss of license for 2yrs. 2nd time 5yrs in jail and permanent revoke of the license.
Lets see how many people will drive drunk TWICE.
I know a girl who has lost five friends during a two year period to DUI. She has gotten three DUIs since.
I lost an old friend a few months ago because he just drank himself in the grave after losing his job (riding unemployment for 18 months- having to go to work was the one thing that kept him from being drunk 24/7).
The only way to really address the issue is to address the alcoholism.

A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one."
