Except, no one really worries about drunk drivers driving into a tree. If that happens, I'd say its all good, servers them right... The real problem is drunk drivers running into other drivers, pedestrians, property, etc. And even back in the days of horses and carriages, when forced to go at full gallop the horses would not be able to prevent such mistakes. 13:22, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Uh, no. That's not how it works at all. If that was the case nobody would have shown up to my dad's funeral. People should worry about drunk drivers hitting anything, and more importantly be worried about them getting behind the wheel in the first place. Fuck you for saying it serves him right, lets see how you feel when your family member dies because of a reckless accident. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

A horse is a low tech version of KARR. Surely we want a KITT? 14:04, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

"A badly-driven horse can toss-off its owner"... *fnar fnar*. Perhaps "throw off" or "buck" would mesh less easily with the remnants of immature adolescent brain that I still possess? 14:12, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

There was a post to /r/showerthoughts exactly like this posted recently, I'll try to find it. It was something like "vehicles used to avoid crashes, trees, and drive drunks home. then we got rid of horses" -- 19:20, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
