Amazingly, someone realized that not every person pulled over for DUI is an alcoholic. It seems crazy to me that anyone would believe that a DUI driver is an alcoholic, in fact, some are not guilty of driving under the influence, not mention that many more may be guilty of making a bad decision based on State approved DUI charts (weight = number of drinks/hour) or some other lapse of judgment that put them behind the wheel at or around the legal limit.

The study cited in this article states that approximately 50% of all drivers pulled over are binge drinkers (which the author uses as a criteria to determine that a person is an alcoholic).
