Law Question of the Day, Driving

If someone has a Learners permit, can the adult be mildly inebriated? Not talking passed out in the passenger seat, but just "buzzed".

My driving instructor told me to gun it after this bitch cut us off so he could flip her off! I was doing almost 100mph @ 696 and Mound before he finally told me to back off, we are not going to catch her. Good times

I've wondered about that myself. They say you just need a licensed adult in the car, they don't specify a sober adult.

I remember this coming up years ago.

the licensed driver has to be sober, as essentially they are driving on their license.

I'm sure one of our men in blue will correct me, but i believe if driving with someone with a learners permit, the licensed driver can be ticketed for violations the trainee makes.


or i'm wrong

I used to drive my grandma home when she was hammered all the time when i was 15. i can't imagine it's legal though. I am curious as to what the punishment would be

LOL...we had a friend that did that once...was drunk, and had one of our learner's permit daughters drive her home.

She didn't get pulled over, but I'm sure that would have been an interesting story if they had.....
My guess. the regular driver will be ticketed with a DUI... the learner's permit may not get a license....but i don't know for sure...

Back in the day when i first was given my learners permit(i think i was 15) i was en route to pick my parents up from a New Years party, I barely slide through a stop sign at the end of my grandma's street and a cop just happen to see me,(In Hubbard Lake, Mi) well the cop pulled me over and asked for my license and where i was heading blah blah blah, i handed him the little paper deal and said i was going to pick up my parents that where drinking and at that time he handed me my paper back and told me to drive safe.


Im pretty sure he was looking for drunks on New Years rather then 2 kids going to pick up there parents.

I would ticket the driver for violation of their learners permit. I would arrest the passenger for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child endangerment. Misdemeanor and a Felony charge. I would impound the vehicle. The kid would have to wait until they are 18 to be eligible to apply for another driver's license.

So in short, its better to take the chance and drive "buzzed"

and how is delinquency, its teaches them to have a designated driver and not to drive drunk?

If I were you, I'd just shoot the parent and taze the hell out of the kid. But that's just me.

Harsh

So let me get this right. You are "technically" saying the adult is in the wrong by letting a completely sober 15 yr old with a learners permit drive? So is it better that a not sober adult drive than a sober 15 yr old? I may be the jackass here, but i am willing to bet that drunk drivers kill more people than sober 15 yr olds with a drunk passenger.

just my .02

Would you then represent them in court for $600/hr?
