You are still drunk, and you are still in a car. You may mindlessly turn on your car and drive without even thinking. Especially if you are behind the wheel. Now, if you are in the backseat, by any means, feel free to sleep when you are drunk all you want.
It's hard to breathe in a car and will be doing damage to your own health.You will also be blocking roads or parking lots.It is not safe to sleep in a car and you will have to drive when you wake up all groggy headed which could lead to an accdient
This is an unfair law. The person knew they were intoxicated and made the responsible choice to not endanger other people's lives by driving. They should not be punished for not driving under the influence. It defeats the purpose of sleeping it off if you're gonna get arrested for choosing the safer option.
If you don't drink and drive then you shouldn't be considered to have legally been drinking and driving. Arguing that a person might change their mind is ridiculous. Should we arrest people for getting drunk while merely having their car outside the place they are at? What if they change their mind and decide to drive drunk? The person could just as easily be argued to have "care and control" i.e. the ability to set the car into motion if the car they have keys to is within walking distance. The notion of arresting someone for drunk driving when they aren't even in their vehicle is of course a laughable notion. So should the idea of arresting people for drunk driving who aren't even driving.
We should hold people liable for things they actually do, not for hypotheticals.
Universally, the crime is "Driving under the influence of alcohol", not sleeping in one's car; which is not only responsible, it protects one from weather, theft or assault. The aim of the law, ostensibly, is to keep drunks off the road, but if it penalizes drivers who avoid drink-driving then one can only assume this is revenue-raising. As such, it bends the law for profit, which is no different to any other kind of corruption.
No, I do not agree with the law that states you can be arrested for drunk driving if you are intoxicated in your vehicle, just sleeping it off because it will force someone to drive even if they have had too much to drink. It is responsible of a person to sleep in his or her vehicle.
While some might argue that people intoxicated and sleeping in their cars are clearly intending to drive the vehicle when they wake, in which case they may well be over the legal limit, there is no law against 'possibly planning to drink drive'. The law should only be used against people who are actually breaking the law by driving under the influence.
You can not say that. Because if you did not drink you have done no wrong. Falling asleep is common if you are under stress or you have not slept well so it is not fair because the people can not say lose your stress . So you must not arrest people like that
