  1. Road Sense says:

    After reading the article in full, it appears that the 11 persons who were arrested for driving under the influence weren’t the only people out driving under the influence this weekend (tongue in cheek, people). The reason some people leave the scene of an accident:
    1. drunk driving, 2. no licence or insurance, 3. stolen vehicle

    Take your pick.
