Isn't it about time we stopped referring to the act of driving under the influece of alcohol or other drugs as "drunk driving"? The intent of the law is to reduce the number of people who operate motor vehicles while "under the influence", i.e., "Driving Under the Influence", of an intoxicating substance thereby reducing the number of deaths and horrific injuries. In some states this crime is actually referred to as "Driving While Impaired". Being "under the influence", when doing anything that requires a high degree of focus and has potential danger, ranges from mild impairment to "drunk". While even mildly impaired it may take one split second longer to get your foot from the gas pedal to the brake. That can turn into a life and death moment. We need to refer to this condition as "impaired driving".
