    Very sad. Although it sounds crule, but this would be better used with kids that havn't had the chance to drink and drive yet. Teens say "oh that wouldn't happen to me!"

        Teens are immortal, or so they think. the problem is alcohol. I know people like it but telling a young person to drink responsibly is like telling a crack addict to pace themselves.

            I work for the State Highway Patrol and just today I saw pictures of a 28 year old guy who died in a car accident due to drinking and driving. Guess where he was coming from? His own birthday party! That's really a great present to give back to your family... your date of birth and death on the same day!
            I don't condemn people for drinking, but if you are going to do it, don't drive. I just can't see how it is worth risking your own life, or someone elses, just because YOU think you are OK to drive.

              Not all teens are this way. Im not. I agree that some are, but a lot arent. Stereotyping like that doesnt help either.

              It's not just teens who dont drink responsibly. That could have happened to her by a 30 year old person. I see a lot more adults who dont drink responsibly than teens.

              This is very sad...I feel sorry for her, and I hope that guy feels horrible. He will have to live knowing what he did, and what happened for the rest of his life.

                That's more graphic than I'd expected...

                I was speaking to my friend just today about people who take it upon themselves to make poor decisions on the road, and he said that this person who had violated an elementary rule of driving deserved to wreck. I responded that it's oftentimes not the BAD driver who receives the brunt of it.

                Incredibly unfortunate. I think of all I have in my life and how easily it could be taken away. I don't know how I would live as she does.

                People should have more respect for their lives than to drink and drive, and if that isn't incentive enough, consider the other thousands of people put at risk by such an abhorrent decision.

                  Yikes...

                  Though, you can't know for sure that the accident wouldn't have happened if the other driver hadn't been out drinking. But either way, that's some nasty stuff.

                    I agree, but in most cases it is the young and inexperienced that do things like this. Otherwise insurance rates wouldnt be so high for under 21 year olds. While some do the right things, alot do not. Not sterotyping, just statistics. I applaud you for doing things right.

                    Eventually I think alcohol will go the way of the cigarette. Once the lawyers win a big lawsuit or two then the feeding frenzy will start.

                      My husband's uncle died in March of 2001 - and his death was caused by a drunk 17 year old.

                      He was coming home from a small family get-together for his birthday (he just turned 40) at my husband's grandma's house (his mother), and he hadn't been drinking. About a mile or two from home, he hit a patch of black ice (he was going the speed limit), ran off the road and hit a culvert (one of those cement "bridges" that go over ditches at intersections. He was ejected from his car (and he was buckled in) and thrown into the road.

                      People that lived by heard the accident and came out to help out. One of them was directing traffic until the the police and ambulance came to the scene.

                      Then a car was approaching the intersection, and didn't stop. He ran over my husband's uncle going over 80mph in a 50mph zone.

                      He was pronounced dead at the hospital. The doctor's said he would've survived the car accident in the 17 year old boy. He was only knocked unconscious and had a couple broken bones - no spinal damage or anything (very lucky at that since he went through the windshield).

                      The boy was never charged in with anything for it - never had his license revoked - nothing.

                      How's that for justice?!

                        Drinking and driving is being taken out of context. I'm sure every single one of us has gone to a business meeting and had 1-2 martinis, then gone home. It's called casual drinking.

                        I'm against people that drink 5-6 beers and then drive right afterwards when they are not all there in the head.

                          Maybe.... I, personally, have never drank one drink (even a beer) and driven within a couple of hours of that beverage. If I go somewhere and must drive afterwards, then I won't drink anything alcoholic.
