I hit a deer once coming back from Whistler. The damage to my car was significant. There is absolutely no way that a sober person wouldn’t stop to inspect the damage. At which point, you’d notice that the victim had arms and legs and skin, instead of 4 legs and a hide.
Lived there for three years and there is little doubt in my mind this is accurate, I compiled a comment at the same time as yours with the same sentiment. A really terrifying place for attitudes toward drunk driving if you don’t come from that state.
