A quickie re DUI/DWI

There is currently a PSA on TV about drunk driving or "riding." It's the same commercial every time, except that ~50% use the term "drunk driving" while the rest of them use "drunk riding."

My question is - why? Are they subtly trying to make us think that merely riding in a car while drunk is a DUI/DWI no-no? And, if so, how does the "designated driver" deal now work? Is it gonna be illegal to be drunk while sitting in the passenger seat? And where in hell do they expect people to drink now - I will not drink alcohol on my own at home. For me, drinking is a social experience, not a loner one. If my assumption is correct, this sucks - big time.
