Next time, if you know you have to drive home, don't drink. You put yourself and your son in a bad situation. Learn from it and don't do it again. You're lucky he didn't have an accident. Even if it wasn't his fault your insurance wouldn't pay.

you guys gotta realize.... if I drank 4 times a year.... THAT'S A LOT!
it wasn't planned, it wasn't a party, and I wasn't smashed.... primarily because I wouldn't want my son see me drink to excess.
He's never seen me drunk.

FYI, a portable breathalizer is not super accurate and isn't even allowed as evidence in court (at least in Iowa). Don't count on it to be your I'm ok to drive savior.

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.

First of all, alcohol limit for CDL drivers is .04 not .02 (.08 in most states for non-CDL drivers)

Second, asking an underage kid to drive for you shows lack of responsibility on your part. I'm sure your son will brag about it to his friends. Doesn't reflect very well on you IMHO.

You should have called somebody to pick you up.

Not much of a friend if he didn't offer to let you spend the night given the circumstances........

A point .02 with a CDL will only put you out of service for 24 Hours if you're on duty and driving. That being said most companies will terminate an employee if they receive a .02 citation.
