My best friend died being hit by a drinking and driving accident in high school, so he knows how strongly I feel about it. I think it's horrible, selfish and just plain stupid.
He blew a .12, so he had to have had a few drinks and conciously made the choice to do it. On top of all the moral issues with it, he could have his license suspended for a year, a fine of $1000, have to go to an alcohol class and a bunch of other expensive things. We live in a rural area, can't afford to not have him drive to work and can't afford all these lawyer fees and other fines he'll get.
What would you do? I was so mad when I was talking to my mom last night that I brought up kicking him out, but she said I was being dramatic- do you think so?
UPDATE: His friend dropped him off around 6pm to talk. He was apologetic and upset, broke into tears at one point, but eventually said he knew he had drank too much and didn't see the big deal in driving home and actually said he was annoyed that he would had to pay so many fines. Wrong answer. He's staying with his friend until further notice- I'm not having someone who doesn't see the big deal in drinking and driving in my house and around my children. Someone who knew he had consumed too much alcohol and chose to drive anyway.
