Following the Libertarian doctorine to its logical conclusion, driving while intoxicated should be permitted, as long as the driver causes no harm to others

Personally, I think this goes too far. The trick is that someone should not be allowed to drive their car while in no condition to do so safely, no matter the cause. Evidence of unsafe operation could include an at-fault accident, but also other things like an inability to maintain a regular speed or weaving. Most if not all drunk drivers of the dangerous variety display their intoxication through their driving... which means if you're driving fine, you're not in violation, but if you're driving badly, you can be cited for it... which just happens to make perfect sense.
