It’s unreal in the US. In many states they see speed cameras, speed guns, booze buses, helmets etc as an infringement on their civil liberties.

True story. About 5 years ago I was in Charleston South Carolina with some American friends who were from Atlanta but had lived in Charleston for years prior.

My buddy picked me and my partner up in a big GMC SUV. He had a big esky fixed into the centre of the car and connected to the cigarette lighter socket.

We drove around for hours from one pub to the next and drinking Buds from the esky throughout. I said to him, “so what’s the story with drink driving here ?” He said it’s crazy. There are no booze buses and the cops can’t breathalyser you either unless they have good reason. He said unless you are wandering on the road, speeding etc they can not breathalyse you and even then, you have to fail the sobriety test as well eg walk in a straight line, count backwards etc.

So, basically, he said you can drink as much as you like and only if a cop sees you breaking a law will you get pulled up. So otherwise just drive slow and steady, don’t wander, and you’re fine. Everyone does it in SC he said. That’s the way they do it there.

Unreal.
Crazy country.

Due to their amazing college system , geez it makes the draft a great event , they certainly know how to make it into a blockbusher , even the rookie show on Fox is outstanding

It sure is CC. Great to see our own Aussie Daniel Faalele get drafted to the Ravens as an offensive tackle. The bloke is 203cm and weighs 174kg....the heaviest in the NFL now!!

Great to see my Steelers drafted Kenny Pickett as the new QB, and how's this for excitement when you get drafted:

The AFL could learn from it. The AFL
National Draft is an amateurish, cringeworthy *** show every year.

In saying that though, the NFL Draft goes over the top at times. All the endless yelling and screaming (mostly over nothing), bizarre stage presenters, corny entertainment (eg Chris Angel)… it can get annoying.
