    No way. A drunk foreigner from down south. I understand that in Mexico, if you are caught driving drunk, it’s just as strict and devastating as it is in Canada (who doesn’t even let into their country anyone guilty of DUI). I have read about so many Mexican people driving drunk. I know Americans of all colors are guilty, too, but as someone that’s been hit by drunks, it’s scary.
