So a drunk driver is fine unless he hits someone?

There's no such thing as a victimless crime.

So a drunk driver shouldn't be charged unless he hurts someone?

Most crimes are victimless at first. Drunk driving doesn't have a victim until the driver slams into another car and kills everyone in it. Doing meth doesn't have a victim until the drug user is addicted and let's his kids starve so he can get another high. Unless you penalize these things before they get a victim, there will be a victim.

True. One shouldn't be charged with a crime that only harmed them.

In my opinion, no. All he's done up to that point is drink alcohol and drive. It's like farting alone in the woods...if there's no one around to smell it, it didn't happen.
