Imagine that you and a friend have been out enjoying a good time together, and at the end of the evening, you and your friend decide to share a taxi ride home. As you get into the taxi, the driver asks where you would like to go, and you and your friend both notice that the taxi driver's breath faintly smells of alcohol. You look at your friend as if to ask, "What should we do?" and your friend whispers, "At least it's only a 5minute ride to your apartment". You briefly think about asking the taxi driver whether he's been drinking, but you realize that if he has been drinking, he probably won't admit to it. Realistically, which of the following two options would you most likely choose if you found yourself in this situation?

A. I would probably take the short ride home and hope for the best.
B. I would probably just get out of the taxi.
