Idea Description

Everybody agrees that drunk driving is a bad idea--when they're sober. The trick is to get them to leave the car at home before they get drunk and lose all judgment. Lots of people drive drunk because they fear to abandon the car they've saddled themselves with.

Deny bars parking lots. People go to bars only to drink. Even one drink can sometimes make a person unfit to drive. Encourage bars to open shop near public transportation hubs. Also encourage the bars to rent cheap rooms for the night, the way old inns used to do.

The main word "Accountable"

Idea Description

This problem is way too simple to correct in the majority of the accidents. Most people are not leaving their homes drunk, they are leaving the bars drunk. Whether one is driving or not, no establishment should allow anyone to become "specifically" highly intoxicated, . The establishments should be held accountable for serving people too much. People can be falling out of their chair, and still are served.

Holding establishments responsible - leading up to harsh punishments, would be a viable way to limit this problem.

Take driver's keys away at beginning of night

Idea Description

If you take the driver's keys away at the beginning of the night, before they start drinking, then you will have a better chance of getting the keys and stopping them from driving. Not only are they not drunk when you have the conversation, they are much more susceptible to the idea when thinking clearly than when intoxicated.
