How is it that people who drink and get drunk can still drive back to their home

    How is it that people who drink and get drunk can still drive back to their home.

    Although this is absolutely not a good idea to drink and drive, I find that people still do that, but if they are not stopped at roadblocks, they can still find their way back home.  Strange....

    Some people build up a slight tolerance, but this is still very dangerous and they can get in trouble since theirs always a chance

    They can do it, but it's certainly not safe. I think we ought to have an automated transportation system that requires no human drivers. Until that day, always tell your friends (and yourself) to never drive drunk.

    Roadblocks are real close to searches without warrants, so I've reservations about calling for an increase in that effort.

    People can drive home, (to answer your question), because you can still function on alcohol---albeit poorly.

    I think it's a combination of what they guys have said already. You can build a tolerance and just like anything: Practice makes perfect. If you've done it multiple times before as they probably have, it should become easier and easier each time. I'd imagine this is how they accomplish it.

    Well even though they are drunk they still have a functioning brain usually and I think the built-in compass in our bodies gets us home, or it could be that the car is smarter than we think.

    It all depends on the level of intoxication that the drivers capability to find his way home is still a set of thoughts, but the greater the level of intoxication the greater the risk of driving under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol impairs judgment but not the will.
