The notion that "there's nothing you can do" to stop the supposedly crazy exceptions of people who drink, or use drugs while driving, is rather unsubstantiated. There is clearly a correlation between the penalty that you place on a crime, the attention paid to monitoring people's behaviour, and following through with the rules enforced. Take drunk driving, for example, which has been reduced through a variety of public awareness, and hefty legal consequences.

So yes, these things are political...politics regulate people and populations, encouraging or allowing some behaviour, and discouraging of proscribing other behaviour. Right?
