Default 50 killed in DUI crashes during New Year's weekend in California

WOW is there going to be a push to ban cars now in California.... 50 people in just one week-end? If this was 50 people killed by firearms, they would be calling for a total ban on firearms.

Thumbs up

Back 40 years ago it was socially acceptable, shouldn't have been, but that has drastically changed. When we were younger we ate out at the local bar 3-4 times a week and and got faced. We had about 1/2 mile 25 MPH small town street and 3/4 miles of dirt road to get home plus back then the local small town cop would never stop you. It was reasonably safe but non the less could have become a tragic accident. Now, on the rare occasion we go out for dinner we drink iced tea. I guess it falls under the "older and wiser" deal.

Kalifornians love their cars. The only way they would ever ban them is if they found that cars contain chemicals known to the State of Kalifornia to cause cancer. (Everything else does)

Every time I read that it cracks me up. "Contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer." Another reason not to ever set a foot in Cali!
