Unhappy Carefull everyone.

Went to work today to find out a girl Ive worked with for a couple years, 16 year old daughter was killed in a car wreck. It was Sat and the 17 year old driving was apparently drinking and tried to pass on a curve and hit a car head on. He and she was killed and 5 others are still in the hospital. Wasnt a fun day at work. Anyway, everyone stay safe and talk to your kids about road safety and driving while drunk. Take care, HG

My sympathies to the families HG. Hey not only should you talk to your kids about drinking and driving, LOOK IN THE MIRROR TOO! Just because we're "older and wiser" doesn't mean we don't need a check up from the neck up every now and then.

I am 17 and turning 18 in a week and a bit.I drink occasionly and when I drink I would never even think about driving.I usually either stay at the place where I have driken at or I walk home.It is just STUPITIDY to drink and drive <img src="graemlins/nono.gif" border="0" alt="[nono]" /> I could not emagine what it would be like to have someone I loved to be killed by a drunk driver Whats with people now a days.It doesnt cost that much for a freaking taxi.

My sympathies to the families

Five years before I was born a drunk driver hit my dad head on. He was driving an old one ton Chevy truck. The impact tore everything off from the frame, the cab, the engine, the rear axle everything. He went through the windshield, and tore half of the top of his head off. By the time the paramedics arrived his heart had stopped beating. Luckily they were able to revive him. I have no sympathy for drunk drivers; I do feel sorry for their families. I especially feel sorry for their victims and the families of their victims. My prayers are with your friend's family HemmiGremmie.

They need to redo the laws on impared driving... The .08 limit we have here in canada was established as an agreement between the government and beer companies long ago when cars went slower...

Closest I have come to driving drunk is driving like an hour after having 3 drinks over 2 hours... First time I drove after consuming more than a beer in 3 hours that cuz on the way home I had to go through a check stop (it is not like the alcohol affected me that I noticed... but we have a zero tolerance law for minors here and I am under 18, although I would have blowen green or at the most yellow I would have been called impared anyhow)

So anyhow I do not sympathise for people who are convicted of impared driving who are drunk, but I do feel bad for the guy who is just barely over the limit... although that limit isn't the best way to judge if someone blows at .09 and they are a big guy who just happened to go out and drive home one time I do feel a bad for them... Guys who drive just pissed I think should hit the ditch and take themselves off the road before they kill anyone... thing is in our town these guys get pulled over, towed and are on the road the next night...

Anyhow.... My ******* cousin was convicted of drunk driving... and well I don't feel sorry for him (he blew much more than the .08 I am sure since he can barley remember the jail cell) I think that the laws in canada and the states should be changed on drinking and driving to either a much lower limit or to zero tolerance (that one would be safest but most difficult to impliment)

HG, I am sorry to hear that. I saw that on the news the other day. It is such a tragedy to see ANY life lost, ESPECIALLY at a young age, and due to such carelessness.
My condolences to the family and friends of the victim(s). I will keep them in my prayers.

God bless...

And to make matters worse, there was a story on the local news about a guy who was charged with vehicular manslaughter. He killed a father of 3 who was on his way home from work at 5:30. The killer was in a wheel chair van. He lost his mobility after his 3rd drunk wreck, and this was his FIFTH!!! He only got 16 years
I used to work at a prison and I saw more inequality of judgement than I care to remember. 42 years for stealing lawnmowers and 7 years for PRE-MEDITATED murder. This was in NC

AND THEN THERE'S THE "WAR ON DRUGS"

I think there is a HUGE difference between driving drunk and .08!!! point .1 was bad enough!

Thanks for the warning HG,

How awful that is. As a parent of two teenagers, I cannot imagine how those poor parents feel right now. Probably almost in shock.



Unfortunately we also had a very similar experience in my town over the weekend with drunk driving. A friend of one of my sons was killed. None of us is guaranteed to live until tomorrow, but these kids that die before their life is barely even started just make me real sad.

Please drive carefully everyone.

My friends dad (was driving a 72 corvette) got in a wreck with a 19 year old drunk kid who was driving a civic and Wayne ( my friends dad) got out and simply beat the he11 out of him. I think that what we all should do, teach them a lesson. <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" />

We were talking about death.

Dead people don't need any lessons. They give them, to those who are wise enough to learn from the mistakes of others....
