CyberMonkey FTW! :? Please tell me I'm missing the sarcasm.
Read the reply of targa_997, he understands what I mean. Again, I'm not recommanding at all to drive under influence... But more experienced people know the roads better, know their car better, and most of all know themselves better.
I'm mainly talking about the fact that it are ALWAYS young drivers who crash their car at ridiculous speed against some tree in the weekends. And though the lack of experience isn't the only reason, it's a damn important one.
Oh, and I know insurance companies are evil?, but they are not stupid. And that's the reason why insurances for new drivers are hugely expensive. Is that because statistics tell those companies that new drivers are as accident-free as more experienced drivers? I didn't think so.
But off course you have to take some other things in consideration, like the time of the day, and the roads you have to take. Driving home drunk on the highway for a couple of hours is just plain stupid, and terribly dangerous since you have to drive at a minimal speed. Driving home drunk on some small roads at two o'clock at night isn't really risky if you know the roads and drive slowly.
Maybe my opinion is a bit too specific since I have only experience with those small roads and seldom have to take highways or crowded cities to get somewhere I want.
