The reasons for driving under influence can be very different. The legislative system practically does not differentiate in any way the degree of responsibility of the driver, who in completely insane form drives at a very high speed on a heavily busy highway (which clearly jeopardizes the life and health of other traffic participants) from the driver who having drunk one bottle of beer, rearranges the car in an empty yard with observance of all possible precautions in his situation, at a very low speed.
