I stumbled upon a nice piece of work here

http://libertariananswers.com...

So, in essence, to solve drunk driving, privatize road.

IMHO this is a solution that beg for problem.

Any body offers any thoughts? Especially Libertarians?

How would private companies enforce that. Ban drivers who drive drunk? How? I don't support the premise that drunk driving is bad in the first place. Reckless driving is what needs to be punished.

The fallacy is assuming that an anarcho-capitalist society must do everything perfectly or it is fallacious.

On topic, I would presume that individuals would pay a small extra fee for using the road in exchange for the private companies policing the road. If they don't, then that's fine also- the state has been doing an awful job at this as well.
