Tragic accidents like this one are especially saddening since drunk driving is not only illegal, but completely avoidable. If you’ve been drinking, STAY OUT OF THE DRIVER’S SEAT!
Drinking and driving simply isn’t worth it. Most drunk drivers are generally more afraid of getting pulled over than causing an accident, but you have to understand how your decision to drive while intoxicated could lead to something much worse than a citation.
