But here's the thing; I did nothing wrong.

After having several shots of vodka, me and my friend decided we would get some food. I agreed to drive carefully, something my friend doesn't do when he's drunk. So essentially, me and my friend hit a red light and a guy slams right into my rear. Cops come and I'm explaining myself; that we were just sitting at a red light doing nothing wrong. But the cop could smell the alcohol on me, and I ended up being arrested and taken down to the station; charged with driving under the influence while the guy who his me got away scott-free.

This is completely unfair, at least in my opinion. After all, I was not the reckless driver. This isn't justice. I ask you newgrounds, do you believe it is fair for me to suffer from the blatant mistake of another?

I don't understand how you can say both of those things one after the other without lying.

You did drive influenced, so yeah, for your part it sounds fair. The other guy should obviously have been charged as well, but I guess there's a moral in there somewhere, a message, a lesson: don't drive drunk!

Alright fine, having some shots while driving is illegal, yes. But what I meant was that the car accident was completely due to the other person; my alcohol intake not only had nothing to do with it, but didn't impair my driving.

That's how it is, nerd. You can complain and whine all you want, but it's not gonna change anything.

Watch the movie "Flight" by Robert Zemeckis. It came out recently and deals with your situation, on top of being a great movie.

He still gets punished for DWI. Besides, the whole 'did nothing wrong' part is only valid if you aren't drunk and someone else hits you. Soon as he turned the key with alcohol in his system he broke the law, the only reason he got caught was because someone else hit him (I guess?).

Then this is an outrage. Cops harassing innocent people like that, handing out fines to folks that have done no wron-

After having several shots of vodka,

If you accidentally kill someone because you've been driving drunk, i hope it's just you and not anyone else.

I have no sympathy for anyone who kills themselves / injures themselves / or gets in trouble because of a DUI or DWI.

loook don't derail this topic. It's against the rules. Are you really going to blame me for wanting to kick back a few drinks while I forget about that issue? Did you really feel the need to remind me of the second god-awful thing that's happened to me?

But you don't get it; me drinking did not cause the accident. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time and now I'm taking the heat for it.

It's still illegal to drink and drive. It would be like if you had drugs on you and got into a car accident. Just because you weren't using them doesn't make them any less illegal.

I ain't derailing shit, I simply asked a question, a sarcastic one, yes, but a question, none the less. For the record, aren't you backseat moderating, with your statement of "It's against the rules", if I honestly did so much damage to the thread, a moderator would inform me, would they not? I could be wrong, but I believe that falls under the backseat mod category, which is also against the rules, if you honestly wish to continue this conversation, do so in the PM's, as you said, derailing this thread wouldn't solve anything, nor prove anything either.

On Topic: I personally don't think you should have been drink driving, no matter the circumstances, and I full on agree with Zachary's statement of "It's still illegal to drink and drive. It would be like if you had drugs on you and got into a car accident. Just because you weren't using them doesn't make them any less illegal."

Look I understand what I did was completely wrong but you're missing the point I'm trying to make. If I had crashed on my own my arrest would have been entirely justified. But the other guy smashed right into my parked rear without any action from me.

Wait, so even though you were committing a crime by drinking and operating a vehicle, it doesn't make it a crime if you don't get caught? What if that guy slammed into you by an act of God because a mile down the road you would have been texting on your phone and smashed into a parked car with a family in it?

vodkas are 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) or 80 proof.

1 shot= 44ML
7 shots= 308ML

308ML= is more or less half of a pint

whats your weight and how long were you drinking I can tell how drunk you were.
