  1. You are right that someone should think about these types of decisions but right now please show respect to the families and keep your thoughts in your head.

  2. just look at all the discarded liqour bottles on the roadside. shows that drunk driving laws and campaigns are doing very little to stop it.

  3. maybe you should consider other peoples feelings before posting your inconsiderate comments. of course it’s a bad descision to drink and drive but keep in mind that these people do have families and deserve time to heal. the people in these accidents are already in enough pain, why make it worse?

  4. I was injured in this car accident. Please do not drink and drive. I was very seriously injured. I would love to find those people that helped me out of the car that night to say thank you.
