Movies that have characters driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs

i know this is kinda a weird thread, but I was curious.

some of the ones I came up with (along with some friends):

true romance (guy gets caught with coke)
fear and loathing in las vegas
north by northwest

Human Traffic, where the lovable young whippersnappers drive after taking ecstasy and smoking pot, followed by the comment that driving at night with the music blaring is just like a video game, with pretty flashing lights.

WIthnail & I, where Marwood wakes up in the passenger seat (unexpectedly), at the mercy of Withnail's time-saving drunken driving. The scene is even better afterwards, when Withnail tries to beat the DWI charge with alcohol-free child's piss.

Scarface....in some ways. Not constantly, but in many scenes.

How High.

I think Fear and Loathing is by far the best example though.
