Think Before You Drink – Florida Traffic School Online Course

Think Before You Drink

Think Before You Drink
 
History records the first drunk driving arrest on Sept 10, 1897 when a taxi driver crashed his car into the side of a building while under the influence of alcohol.  New York became the first state to adopt drunk driving laws in 1910 followed by California.
 
In 1936 the Drunkometer was patented and then in 1953 the Breathalyzer was invented. The Breathalyzer was easier to use and became the perfect test for the police to use when determining whether someone had too much to drink. All a person had to do was blow into the machine and it would measure the alcohol vapors in their breath.  This would show the level of alcohol in their blood.
 
It was not until the late 1970’s that people were made aware of the dangers of drinking and driving. Advocacy groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, MADD, pushed for tougher legislation of those convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. MADD also pushed to have the legal drinking age raised. The minimum drinking age across the country is now 21.  Convicted drivers can face fines, jail time and the loss of their license.  Because of their efforts, we all know that Drinking and Driving is not a smart thing to do, and its incredibly expensive if you get caught.
 
Drinking too much can make even the smartest of people do dumb things, although history also records several smart people who relied on the drink.  Greek philosophers Socrates and Plato, very deep thinkers, were known to be fond of the drink.  However you would never have found them behind the wheel of a car today.  It would be interesting to find out how they would respond to the officers question, “Do you know why I pulled you over?
 
Plato: Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
 Socrates: To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
 
Officer:  A simple no would have been a better answer.
