"Now I understand, they MUST be bad driving, poor choice making drug addicts, it's the only explanation"
it's the explanation for at least half of them.

I find that "at least half" of them are inept driving druggies is a pretty suspect statement, but I'm sure you have documentation that supports it and shall provide it shortly.
But even IF that were the case, then you are agreeing that the other half are in such a position NOT of their own volition? And yet they should also be viewed with disdain and hostility just because they are poor?
You do realize that a great number of poor are also in such a state because of: mental disorder, PTSD, societal standing, drug addiction (yes, I agree that the DISEASE of drug addiction can be a contributing factor), financially catastrophic medical condition, divorce, death of spouse, natural disaster, fleeing a war torn country, etc.
But I'm sure that if enough people just acted a little more elitist towards them and maybe shamed them a bit more it would probably provide the incentive for them to just stop being poor.
