This thread is full of people with the reading comprehension of a 2-year old. Read and understand the whole thing before posting YDI. 3 beers (not enough to get an adult "drunk" or render them incapable of driving 30 feet), moving his car a few houses down into his drive-way.
I agree with #1. Definitely should have waited. And to #57 - "three beers" is not only rather vague, but also it's not a given that you won't be impaired. It depends on a lot of factors including your tolerance for alcohol and body mass. Also, your tolerance for alcohol has no bearing on whether you get a ticket for DUI/DWI. It's based solely on your BAC compared to the legal limit.
All of you self righteous retards need to ask yourself this question... would you have waited? Likely that he wasn't wasted, and even less likely anyone would have been pulled over in 30 feet. Instead of looking back in hindsight and passing judgment on the poor bastard, admit that ANYONE in that situation would have driven the car. The cop was being a DOUCHE.... Y definitely did NOT DI
Hate to break it to you, but 3 beers is enough to get you 75% of the way to the legal limit. If you're a heavy drinker so your body is used to processing alcohol. And you are a 200 pound man. Also, I would put forth that the OP is relatively young, maybe 18-22, and with the new licensing systems, there is a 0 tolerance policy. FYL for only going 30 feet, but YDI for not waiting until the next morning.
Everyone on here is retarded and needs to learn the law. A DUI means that you are under 21 and your blood alcohol level is more than 0 but less than .08. If your blood alcohol level is over .08, no matter how old you are, then it is a DWI. If you are 21 or older and your blood alcohol level is more than 0 but less than .08, then it's nothing.
@138: 2 things, first: DUI is a DWI, it means you have a BAC of 0.08 or more and were driving. Driving with a BAC below 0.08 but above 0 is a DWAI (driving while alcohol impaired) and is also a fine and ticket, just not as severe as a DUI. OP deserved it for not seeing the cop sitting there while he stumbled out to his car to move it and/or driving bad enough in 30 feet that a cop can tell that he was intoxicated.
omfg you guys are so ****** dumb, first of all what the **** do u mean wait? the party could last to 4 in the morning and the op could have to wake up early for work or something. secondly, the op didnt walk not because heshe is lazy but because heshe would get a ticket and fine for parking on the street overnight. dumbasses
Ok so I have a question: you moved your car 6 houses and 30 feet. You're neighborhood has a house every 5 feet? Second, YDI for not waiting. Studies show even ONE beer can impair you depending on your tolerance, and 3 is more than enough to put you over the limit. You're driving while over the limit, you get a fine. Doesn't matter if it's 1 mile or 100. You just as easily could have moved the car in the morning.
dear #96: **** you Yes, I would have waited. and when I host parties at my house I make sure that no one tries to drive ANY distance drunk or impaired. its common sense. That cop was NOT being a douche, they were doing their job. and I don't ******* care if it was a short distance. And yes, I expect people to think "oh but once the cop saw the license they would've known he was almost home." I've been at many parties where someone who lives close will volunteer to get more beer: so there's no way the cop could 100% known the person wasn't on a beer run. and 3 pounded beers CAN put you over the limit... Just like drinking it from a baby bottle can.
I've heard this story somewhere before. It was a little different but still the same story.
Then again, maybe as they were pulling up they noticed someone stumbling to his car, have trouble finding the right key, not signal while leaving a parallel parking spot, and maybe have crossed the center line. That can all happen in 30 feet. The cop may also have been a douchebag and illegally profiled him.
The quotas are wrong in the first place. If there isn't enough crime, instead of being tahsnked for doing a wonderful job cleaning it up, officers are now forced to find it where it doesn't exist, or make it happen so that they can nab you for something. That's why cops tailgatge people these days. They're just hoping you'll get nervous and make a mistake.
