    Involving a former Alabama Running back. Although this has no relation to football, it is truly sad. Apparantley, the driver of the tow truck that hit him was doing 80 MPH and on the wrong side of the road, and had been so for about 4 miles. Police were looking for him prior to the accident. It was also mentioned on local news that he was trying to hit other cars, and ended up t-boning Siran and his family.

    Can't even imagen how Siran will cope with his great loss.

    Just how many families must suffer before alcohol becomes illegal. :(

    Yeah, that will never happen. The thing is, like anything else, it is up to the person to control themselves.

    The same could be said about vehicles in general. Or guns. Or anything that could harm others during gross misuse. Alcohol is not the problem, people that drink and drive are the problem.

    Thats sad....:( 

    I dont think alcohol will ever become illegal again, but I'll bet that eventually the limit for D.U.I. will be 0....I think right now, at least here, its .08....but yeah....its gonna hit 0 before to long.

    Yes, because we need more organized crime and murder flooding the streets, or did you not notice what happened last time alcohol was made illegal?

    I think they tried that before. Prohibition. Didn't turn out too well.

    *Edit* D C beat me to it.



    Dothan AL. Not too far from where I was born. Ozark AL.

    Just curious...you do know they tried that once, right? And it didn't work out terribly well?

    And besides, where's your post wondering when cars will be made illegal?

    EDIT: Beaten to it all over the place. So I'll get this instead:

    All the research available shows no functional impairment up to .08 BAC. Making the limit 0 would just punish drivers who weren't a threat to others on the road.
