Binge drinking

Another UW Student has died from “Binge Drinking”. The student fell down the basement stairs.,0,4801367.story

Definition of Binge Drinking as listed by Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Binge drinking is defined as episodic excessive drinking. There is currently no world wide consensus on how many drinks constitute a "binge", but in the USA, the term is often taken to mean consuming five or more standard drinks (male), or four or more drinks (female), in about two hours for a typical adult

I feel the problem with binge dinking is not the deaths even though they are tragic, but the idiots who drive drunk after binge dinking.

I have been around for some time now and still cannot understand how so many people get arrested for 4, 5, 10 times for drunken driving.

I think that anyone who is arrested multiple times, their vehicles should be impounded by the court and sold!

Additionally, If the spouse has a vehicle and allows the drunk to take it, he or she should be arrest and their vehicle should then be confiscated!

There has to be a way to get the multiple drunk drives off the road.

OK Ser...I have said this multiple times. Take the car away even if it isn't theirs. Those binge drinkers have to pay a price for their stupid behavior. You're welcome.

I agree with you Ser and Sassa. I use to work with karaoke and took my kids to karaoke. The only thing I drink when I am out is soda. Not only for the safety of my kids and I but for the other people on the road. I could not believe how many people are stupid enough to drive drunk when they left the bar I was working karaoke up north. I was just glad that I was not drinking. If I want to drink I will do it at home.

If you take there car away and there driver's license they will find a way to get another car and drive it. I have seen this before with people I knew at a bar. They keep getting there cars taking away and buy another one. The only way to take care of this is to lock them up.
