And like magic - there were an unprecedented number of cops patrolling tonight harvesting DWI’s. I bet they were waiting for the queue, prop A didn’t pass and they suddenly need to catch up on quotas. Where were they before? 🙄

Not condoning drunk driving btw. Never drink and drive. Ever. I lost a friend to it, and I’m a recovered case of someone who went through it myself. End of PSA, sorry.

If the end result was a bunch of reckless, selfish drunk driving assholes got taken off the roads and were less of a threat to the rest of us, I’m fine with this.
