Did you know that 1 out of 12 people admitted to driving drunk?

When will people learn that this is not acceptable?

  • That is shocking. I enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, but I stay home and don't drive anywhere. I also don't get drunk. I see that you have a Nebraska Huskers symbol for your avatar. In the Omaha area, there was a drunk driver who caused an accident at 9:30 a.m. and had a blood alcohol level 4 times the legal limit. He injured two small boys and killed their father, who was taking them to the first day of school. Ironically, the killer was taken to the same hospital where the man he killed was a radiology student.

    I think that driving drunk is one the of most disgusting, selfish things a person can do. I have no respect for a person who chooses to get behind the wheel in that condition.

  • Ugh. I would never drive after drinking. I always (well the whole 3 times per year I go out) have a DD.

  • I believe it. I have never been drunk at all and there's no way I would drive if I were drunk. People really don't think things through before they do it. Even if I have one drink, I refuse to drive.

  • I always wonder but the survey said this morning that's the percentage that admitted to it.

  • That's awful! I would never! Even one drink and I won't drive.

  • I've done it, when I was a teen. I know how stupid it was and am thankful everyday that I didn't kill or harm anyone. Hubby and I are already drilling it into our kids (12, 7 and 4 yo) that it is wrong and they should never, never do it. The "reasons" I had were stupid and I know it. In the years since then, my cousin killed a young woman while he was driving drunk. He spent time in prison and afterwards made a documentary about the whole thing because his experience was the experience of every other small town teenage boy and he wanted them to see that it can happen to them. As my kids get old enough they will see it - see that someone they know drove drunk and what the results of that are.
