On December 19th, 2009 I chose to drink and drive. All I was panning on doing was moving my car to find a parking spot after leaving a party on campus. While stopped at a stop sign, I was smashed in to by a drunk driver who passed out at the wheel. Both car were totaled, luckily no one was hurt.
I went to mandatory drug and alcohol classes and what I saw changed my life. First and second time offenders who seriously injured other, and didn’t seem to care at all. In some cases, individuals bragging about continuing to drink and drive.
I want to do what I can to keep this from happening to anyone else. I vow to never get behind the wheel , or let family and friends in danger for one lapse in judgement that could change someone’s life and the lives of other’s.
It’s not worth it, please have the courage to ask for a ride, make an extra phone call, don’t be the one who lives with the regret.
