    My friend was the drunk driver himself.

    Of course he wasn't buckled. His car rolled, he flew through wind-shield, hit a tree, then his car collided where his presumably already deceased body was.

    I can't say I "hate" the drunk driver, I just hate the choices they make. Driving while intoxicated is selfish. There are other choices than being a drunk driver.
