      Not quite sure about the linkage between the LDS Church and some fools that decided it might be smart to drink and drive. The 17 year old fool is too young to drink in any state. Hopefully his facial injuries will leave permanent scars to help remind him why intelligent people don’t drink and drive.

    No, Politically Incorrect, alcohol restrictions (DUI) imposed by all 50 states were inacted to save lives. Drunk drivers kill people. If you want to drink yourself into a stupor and act the fool at home nobody cares. If you want to drink and get on the road decent people want to see you in jail where you belong.
