I sat on a jury once in a civil case where a car full of 18-year old girls were driving to the beach for spring break, drinking all the way. On a two-lane road they came upon a farmer driving a tractor very slowly and, speeding while drunk, did not have the reaction time to avoid plowing into the tractor, maiming the farmer permanently, while they were all so drunk they all walked away from the accident. Some of the other members of the jury argued that they should not be held responsible because, "Didn't we all get drunk and drive to the beach in college?" My response, "Well, actually, NO!"!
