Why do so many footballers drink drive?.

As well as being against the law it is very dangerous as I found when a drink driver ran in to my car and wrote it off. It was fortunate myself and the 2 dogs were not hurt.
What did annoy me was the woman had a child in a safety seat in the car and she was 3 time over the drink drive limit.
Oddly I was hit by another woman as she misunderstood the situation. I had been drinks tested and the reading was nil.
Footballers earn good money and could well afford a taxi home or they could stay in a hotel overnight.

It's one of life's mysteries Brian, maybe the answer is because they are footballers.

The answer is that they go from having very little to being rich and famous overnight with all the attention that brings. They're young, often naive and susceptible to all the seductions of the lifestyle...As many of us were. ( With the exception of the wealth. ;D )

My pal used to work in a garage in Perth and several of St Johnstone's players used to come in for fuel. They mostly thought they were Gods Gift and could act as they wanted. Total arrogant Assh***s

Yes Brian, you see woman chatting away on their cell phones while driving  with children in the car every day over here. I am sure many have had a few. There should be a law against it

There is here..Over there I assume that different states have different regulations as with so many things. Very confusing.
