Drunk driving continues to be an epidemic in the U.S. and it looks like it will be until we all can put an end to this horrible decision being made by far too many people.
We have to all do our part to stop impaired driving and the first thing we have to acknowledge is that it’s a real thing that is affecting all of us. At any moment, our lives can be drastically changed at the hands of a drunk driver, no matter who behind the wheel. There is a perception out there that the only people who drunk drive are the scum of the earth because it’s such a heinous act. That’s true, it’s a horrible thing to do, but it isn’t true that it’s reserved to only the world’s worst criminals. It can be your neighbor, it can be your best friend, it can be your mother, and, if you put alcohol into your system and your decision-making skills are affected, it can be you.
Once we change the way we think about this very realistic horrible occurrence, we can hopefully start combating it by any means possible.

It’s time to realize that no matter where you are, you can leave your car there and simply go and get it the following morning. Don’t be stupid. Call a taxi, an Uber, or take the bus.
