Abstract/Description:
Drunk driving is a serious offense, but often goes unnoticed because no harm is often caused by the person committing such a selfish act. Where there is an accident, fatal or minor, the individual is punished for driving while intoxicated. While many theorists believe that it is inappropriate to punish one who has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of .08%, I propose that regardless of the individual harming or not harming another, the person who is driving while intoxicated should face punishment. It should not matter if the driver did not show any signs of impairment or if they hurt anyone else while driving. Any person that goes behind the wheel impaired is at greater risk for hurting themselves or someone else at that time.
