Drunk Driving is Never a Good Idea...

We got a call around 4:45 a.m. Monday morning. My Dad had been hit by a drunk driver....I immediately freaked out. Mom was headed to get him and take him straight to the ER. It was such a nightmare. Dad was headed to work when a man rammed into the side of my Dad's truck. Dad immediately lost control of the car and almost went over the median. The "drunk" male had no idea what was going on. He was so incoherent. After spending several hours at the hospital, the doctor confirmed that he had a cracked vertebrae and fractured spine...I felt terrible for him. He had several cuts, abrasions, knots, etc. I am so thankful he was not badly injured or even worse, dead. God was definitely watching over him! He is home now and sleepng a lot. He's on a lot of pain meds, but the doctor wants him to take it easy for the next four weeks....Friends, drunk driving is never a good thing...Don't do it...People have parents, families, children, etc. If you're going to drink, find a designated driver...I am not here to lecture anyone, but don't be ignorant..Drunk driving never ends in a good way....Period...End of story...

Recently I heard that Canadian drivers that participate to street races could get $10.000 tickets....if drunk drivers would get the same penalty I'm sure their number will drop off and the rest of them will think twice before driving under the influence of alcohol....
Impaired driving is definitely the biggest fault a driver could do and that's why it should have severe consequences on him and his license.
