Folk need to make it to the playa before safety becomes third.
The horror (for me) is that I lost two of the people I love best in two separate incidents where there was alcohol involved, but not over the limit.
So, um, those "buzzed driving is drunk driving" billboards may have a point.

My theory echos the others here: let someone else get the ticket. Don't drink and don't speed and be careful. I don't think that it has much connection to LEOs, but buy an Indian taco at least in one direction.
