People here can't drive stick while in full control of their body. You think a newbie can drive stick drunk? I don't think so

It's not if they can, it's if they try and succeed at all

If one is so intoxicated that he can't coordinate a gear shift with proper clutch actuation, then he is a danger on the road regardless of transmission type.
__________________
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission. "Yeah, but NO ONE puts an automatic trans shift knob on a manual transmission."

Any ideas are appreciated, I have looked at rav4's, crosstreks, Q3's, Mazda cx-5's. Anything to support or steer me away from those cars is also appreciated.
Young drivers today seem to have more issues with having accidents than years ago (it looks that way to me). Probably due to distracted driving (phones).

Get the safest/slowest vehicle you can buy. SUVs and trucks flip over a lot more often than cars (you can search this for concrete evidence).
Just get a Civic or Accord and be done with it. My nieces have two Civics. It's a great little car.
