    a rule that every driver (will, shall etc)

    No driving after drinking is a rule every driver (will, shall, may, can) obey in our country.

    The given answer is 'shall'. But I wonder how native speakers will use the modal verb, must or anything else, and express the whole conception.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: a rule that every driver (will, shall etc)

    The best word would be must, but as that is not one of the options, shall comes closest to it in the meaning of imposing an obligation.

    We tend to link drinking and driving, rather than driving after drinking.
