No, not so different in the US. http://www.itwonthappentome.org/docu...abilityDoc.pdf

What is the lesson you teach your son if you drive? Remember he will be faced with that situation in the not so distant future. Whatever reason (excuse) you offer him, you may get it turned around on.

What is the lesson you teach your son if you let him drive, clearly knowing it is illegal?

Maybe you should have a look at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...2180038AAlgnp0

Call the wife, call a friend, call your brother-in-law, call a cab (not an option in your case), sleep if off in your car, walk if you have to... Neither of the two choices you presented would be a choice for me.
