Things have definitely changed with time. The article about the female driver drinking Coors beer brought back some memories. Of course drinking and driving is not acceptable and with MADD and stricter laws it has become a very serious crime. If this article was published when I was a teen in the early seventies it would have read a little differently. What you would see is this. 3000 Teens seen drinking beer from their vehicles Friday night.
