    Everything is relative I guess. Would you rather wait 4 hours for a taxi and then still have to make a return trip the following day to fetch your vehicle (and hope it wasn't broken into or towed)?

    I guess I'm the slowest person on here. What's "the Nazi" mean? Please explain that to me.

    He explained it already. It's a sarcastic way of saying you're very much against something.

    Salty is expressing his concern about a great service being forced out. I've used it. Yes I drink, no I don't get drunk. If I have more than one drink I'm not driving, even if II think I'm below the legal BAC.

    I couldn't care less what anyone's opinion of drinking is. Great, you don't drink, more power to ya.

    TXI, he said multiple times he doesn't drink to excess. He's being extra cautious even if his BAC is 0. Comprende?

    Salty, that sucks man. I love that service. Every one I've used has been super friendly.

    They do background check their drivers. They just feel that the background checks that the cities want are onerous and I agree. Shit here in Austin it was a huge double standard too as they already did more extensive background checks than the residential/commercial inspection department at the City of Austin. Seriously they will hire almost anyone there and give them a city vehicle, but no Uber/Lyft had to go through a much more expensive process. And to be frank there is no evidence I've seen it would make them safer....they were already incredibly safe in the first place. Uber/Lyft have better safety track records than most cab companies out there and their service is WORLDS better than any cabbie. All these laws are usually pushed by cab companies anyway because they are pissed that their municipality supported monopoly business model was getting interfered with.

    Agreed.

    And about drinking and drink nazis- this is Texas. We're free. We can drink whatever we want. Water, rio Brazos boxcar bourbon, grey goose, lone star, tea, and whatever other people drink.

    Salty, how did they arrest you with a BAC of 0? Don't you have to take a breathalyzer test? Was this in Corpus?

    The law doesn't say that if you blow under, you didn't commit a crime. The courts decide that. It was bullshit discretion. Our officers have the power to make judgement calls. i don't think DWI or DUI is a law that should be discretionary. FACT- DUI by a minor requires no proof of breaking the law by the state. It happened in our lifetime that if a minor admits that they drank before driving they go to jail, even with a 0.000 BAC. This was my case once and then I was wrongly arrested after 21 driving a puking drunk person home. Drinking and driving is stupid, irresponsible, and deadly - don't do it.
