Well it's funny you say that. Wife and I went to dinner and parked by the square,. When we came out someone had enjoyed our golf cart front seat and left there almost empty cups in the cup holders

Good point - Maybe I can chain it to my golf cart. But would that mean it is now part of the cart? Inquiring minds need to know.

Or I guess I could just drink water

Russ, if you chain your chair to the golf cart, then it's part of the golf cart. However, if you chain your golf cart to the chair, then the golf cart is part of the chair and you can then enjoy a drink in the golf cart.

What's your excuse!

With all due respect, with 2 glasses wine you are intoxicated and near or cloth to the limit. And we talk about the legal limit. But what is about the personal Limit?
With two drinks the driving skills are affected, that is for sure. In addition, the people from the villages are not more in age of 20 or so. When you hit a certain age, reaction, vision, everything goes slower. It is the life. When you have 2 or more drinks in addition, this could be a bad mix.
Drinking and driving should be a no go for everyone.
PS: Impaired driving applies to all vehicles.

With all due respect you need to read some science. According to the chart in my link it would take me 4 drinks in the first hour to reach the limit (i.e. the body generally removes about 1 drink per hour from the system as specified in the article and I weigh about 200lbs).

I found a good primer on the subject: http://chavesdwiprogram.us/pdf/Effec...toxication.pdf

But I'm not here to say that any level of drinking and driving is OK. I understand that any amount of alcohol can have different effects on different people (weight, age, food consumption, past damage etc.). Heck, I am a Registered Nurse.

In the future I'll let my non-drinking wife drive the golf cart home, even though I seldom have more than 1 drink at the squares. Even the AMA says you could benefit from 1 glass of wine per day

Again - this thread is about whether they should give citations to people sitting in carts at the square - not whether they should drive home or not. We ALL understand you shouldn't drink and drive.

Talking Maybe positive

Did you know that the effects of alcohol is the same as "embalming fluid".
Given this it may be an advantage as it could be asserted that in the case
of The Villages the drinking is just expediting the expected end result.

Yes, and No. You are absolutely right that it depends on body weight, condition, food, age....and many things more. Also a lot of elderly people take medications which affect the driving ability as well. The problem is, no one says I could be too drunk. Everybody is under the impression, I can still drive, i feel good.

I am a much better mix, I am a LEO and my wife sells beer.

Good choice.

But not the DMV....

And this is up to the LEO. He have the right to do it and it is his or her decision if they let you go. So be nice to all law enforcement officers and make sure, they get a pay raise.
