10 states in dire need of 'designated drivers'

GasBuddy Blog -- For millions of Americans, autumn is the arrival of cooler weather and fall foliage. And for millions of others it's all about football (high school, college and/or pro) and prolific beer consumption (domestic and/or imported).
Many of us are simply hard-wired to unwind and blow off some steam by gathering with friends at home, or at our favorite taverns, or with tens of thousands of intensely loyal fans who believe their presence at the stadium might influence the game's outcome and is, therefore, mandatory. We eat and drink voraciously for many hours; and, as the day nears its end, we hope someone is sober enough to drive home. (Hey, do you remember where we parked the car?)
Does that sound like you or someone you know?

The government should post videos of victims who are willing to discuss the consequences of DWI.

GB must think this is a good article to keep posted after three days or has run out of ideas for pertinent gas price news.

Yep; it hard to get home when you can't find the car, but it is also a good think cause this means you are too wasted to drive as well

I guess other states don't drink as much bear because they are partial to hard liquor and drugs.

If you drink, don't drive. IT IS that Simple.

So if you drove, don't drink!
