I dont see a drive-thru though.

People in New England are pretty heavy drinkers.

I think people in Maine drink more than people in NH. I was surprised by the number of stores in ME that sell hard stuff. Rite-Aid has an aisle of the shit.



NH has state liquor stores on the highway.


Here in CA, pretty much every gas station sells liquor and beer and wine, and I am not sure if I've ever seen a grocery store here that doesn't sell liquor and beer and wine.  There's liquor at CVS, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger, and most awesomely Costco.

I have two drive-thru beer stores within five miles of me.

Garage doors at both ends, like a carwash tunnel.  Don't even have to haul your fat ass out of the drivers seat, just pop the trunk. 

No liquor, though.

They have those "drive thru"  Beer Barns in Ft Worth and Dallas too.  Out here in the sticks where I live its a dry county and I have to drive 32 miles to get my beer/wine/liquor.

Kinda makes you stock up once you're there...

I wanna see drive-thru liquor stores get on board with the root beer stand idea.

Young ladies with pin striped skirts and roller skates delivering shots of Jose Cuervo on those trays that hang on your window. Have your shots, get back on the road and go about your day.

Why hasn't this caught on yet?

In 1994, Money magazine reported that telemarketers raised over $38 million for MADD, keeping nearly half of it in fees. This relationship no longer exists.
2001, Worth magazine listed MADD as one of its "10 worst charities".
In 2005, USA Today reported that the American Institute of Philanthropy was reducing MADD from a "C" to a "D" in its ratings. The Institute noted that MADD categorizes much of its fundraising expenses as "educational expenses", and that up to 58% of its revenue was expended on what the Institute considered fund-raising and management.[18]
Charity Navigator rated MADD at 36.72 on its charity rating scale for the 2006/2007 fiscal year, based on it efficiency and capacity.[19] MADD reported that it spent 16% of its budget on fundraising that year.[19] Charity Navigator reported MADD's total revenue for the year as $49 million (US). [19]
In 2009 MADD took in $41,006,038 and paid salaries of $20,537,936, over half of their income. [20]



Give it a few years, you'll have alcohol detectors in ALL cars reporting to the "black box". 

Bye-bye civil liberties.  Even their founding member resigned.

MADD is a fucking farce.

They claim they are out there "educating" people on the dangers of drunk driving. EVERYONE, even people who do it, know that its not the best idea in the world to get behind the wheel of a car when shit-faced. So who do these people claim they are educating?

Maybe its time someone started a Mothers Against Throwing Hair Dryers In Bathtubs charity, ya know, to educate people on the dangers of showering while drying your hair. After all, its not a good idea.

If you read the MADD wiki, and sort of read between the lines, it becomes apparent that the founder  disliked the direction it was taking.  Now it seems to exist as a self-aggrandizing entity that are temperance assholes hell-bent on abolition and won't rest until prohibition is reestablished. 

Not to mention, a lot of them are paid very well to be professional assholes.  It wouldn't surprise me at all if their higher-ups are on the take from Big Liquor to reach a tolerant medium.

MADD can kiss my (whatever repulses them the most!)

The cop instructor that presided over my DWI MANDATORY classes said they are likely to have a representative in every DWI case that goes before the judge - even in hick counties.

If the judge is lenient, they will document it and it may come back and bite him on his ass.  Its how they enforce the mandatory bullshit.
