    Idiot.

    At least no-one was hurt. Hopefully can learn from his mistakes and get on with life.

    Problem is that he is public property and he can't make his mistakes in private.

    Drunk driving is not a 'mistake', like forgetting to do the laundry. Its potentially a situation where you'll get yourself killed, and more importantly, some other innocent person killed.

    Any respect I had for him went completely out the window.

    Massive overreaction tbh. This is drunk driving we'r talking about. Not exactly highway robbery or murder for a person to lose total respect.
    True, drunk driving is not something to be encouraged but in reality, there are many many people who drive their whole lifetimes under influence without an incident. Its all about knowing your limit and being inside that. The laws are at a ridiculous level here imo- where drinking one beer and driving 15 min. later can get you busted. Well, i've tested this in motion labs and shooting ranges and one beer doesn't even slow my reflexes by 0.1 seconds.Besides, driving is not about reflexes anyways- if you are using your reflexes while driving it means two things only : either you messed up or someone else messed up. I know a few friends who drive under influence and i have no probs with them because they know what they are doing - a glass of wine or a bottle of beer is nothing to them and they are responsible people in general.

    Not something to be encouraged,sure, but far cry from the horrible ghastly act you are potraying it to be.

    Yet you still respect Asif?

    That's a joke by the way before someone jumps on me.

    Asif didn't put anyone's life in danger. Sorry but I had a friend who died because some ****er had too much to drink and was too stupid to get a cab home. I have no patience and no excuse is good enough. Far as I'm concerned, its a deadly weapon you're driving and you should be put away for a long long time if you get caught.

    Typical ' react from confused hurt impulses' than sane thinking.
    As i said, you'll find countless people who drink and drive their entire lifetimes without incident. The key is knowing when/where to stop. Not 'oh no- he took a sip of vodka..no driving for him even though he could've eaten 5 grapes and still have more alcohol' type of reaction.

    Agreed.

    He did wrong, broke the law and was punished. Im pleased he didnt get any jail time. However, drink driving is far less excusable in the UK (where all the drinkning establishments are close together and there are massive amounts of taxis) compared to South Africa where no effective public transport exists.

    10 years ago this would have outraged me but from my own point of view I have seen enough of different places to recognise it isnt as dispicable as I previously thought.
