Let's Do Away With Drunk-Driving Laws

• Newser
Laws against drunken driving are admirable in intent, but a case can be made (with stats to back it up) that they actually make our roads less safe, argues Radley Balko in Reason. Measuring blood-alcohol levels is misguided given the vast differences in how individuals handle their booze. Police, meanwhile, waste manpower at DWI checkpoints (civil liberties violations are a whole other can of worms) to snag people at the arbitrary 0.08 level instead of patrolling the roads for drivers who are, in fact, driving dangerously.
