Driving Under The Influence
Long gone are the days when a driver could crack open a beer for the ride home. The practice, which was legal just over a few decades ago, has been prohibited. Open containers of alcohol are now against the law, and the blood-alcohol limits have been restricted. Driving under the influence is no longer acceptable. But old habits sometimes die hard.
Drunk Driving Distinction
Fatal crashes involving drunk drivers occur regularly each year, with almost 200 people dying each year as a result. These accidents are preventable and tragic. Worse, they are tragic at the expense of innocent motorists. More here
Drunk – or drug-impaired — drivers are a hazard to the entire community. Sure, they are a danger to themselves, but it’s the victims — the construction worker coming from a hard hot day on the job, the nurse heading to work for the Graveyard Shift, the local messenger delivering a package — who get hurt. Ordinary people affected by those who don’t care who they endanger looking to have a good time.
When a motorist dies as a result of driving under the influence, the drunk driver must be held responsible. Legal action is the best recourse, with justice coming through either civil action or wrongful death claim. There’s no way to compensate a family for a loss of a loved one in an accident with a drunk driver, but it is some sort of vindication. In addition, if that loved one is, indeed, the construction worker, the nurse, or the messenger, that individual’s income was important to somebody somewhere. The drunk eliminated it.
