The question seems to assume and conclude that everyone is getting drunk. Doesn't say much for the population of lawrence.

The comments indicate everyone thinks you have to be drunk to take a cab. Not so. Even one drink can make some people at risk for flunking the drunk test. Just saying.

Had to take a cab one year because the "designated" driver undesignated himself about 11pm New Year's Eve. At least he paid for the cab to drop everyone else off before he went home.

No, but I drove for it once years ago when the cab company was A-1 City Cab. It was a hoot!

Babboy, that was my point also. It seems the people asking the questions are not very good at seeing beyone their own experiences, consequently they don't have the abilitiy to ask questions with choices other than the most simplistic. ie; what is your favorite pair of bug eyed suglasses from the gap??

Okay, I give credit to whoever came up with the question for raising the relevant issue of not driving drunk.

But, the question assumes everyone is going out and will be getting drunk.

There should have been an option saying something to the affect that I am not going to be drinking or if I am drinking it will be at home where the driving issue is not relevant.

I used to be a huge drinker. It was like something I thought I was better then everyone else because I could drink so much more then “normal” people.

Never mind how stupid I got.

I am very happy to say rarely drink now and when I do it is in a controlled setting such as football game with self imposed drink limit and I do not drive when any drinking is involved and I do not keep booze at home so when I say rarely drink it is a very accurate statement.

But, even when I was an idiot regularly raising heck, I thought New Year was lamest reason in the world to get hammered.

I vote for "I stay home and may or may not have a bit too much bubbly."

I also vote for "I don't get drunk" so, there really needs to be someone over the age of twenty making up these poll questions.

When I lived in Brazil there was a bar called 'drunk delivery,' in which they had designated drivers drive you home if you had a few too many. The driver would take you in your car and a motorcyclists would follow. After theyd done their delivery, the motorcyclist would take the driver back. The bar was a success....

Or another response, like "I don't remember."

How about another answer, like, I don't get drunk on New Years Eve by not drinking or only having one drink? Then I could vote.
