Bloggers Against Drunk Driving Pledge To Stay Sober & Alive

Pin It Now! Attention Bloggers

The Department of Transportation has asked American bloggers to spotlight the critical importance of staying sober behind the wheel this Independence Day. I am very against drinking and driving My friend was hit head on by a drunk motor cycle rider back about 10 yrs ago, she had just dropped me off at home and 5 minutes later called me hysterical to come take her to the hospital, her car was totaled and they picked glass out of her face for hours in the ER. The motorcycle guy was ejected from his cycle and landed in her windshield, the Police said the angle of her car, from trying to swerve, if I had been in the passenger seat I most likely would have been killed. I still have  a fear of speeding motorcycles, they make chills run down my spine. The Motorcyclist was killed on impact, 22 yrs old and the father of a 3 yr old. He was going over 100 miles an hour on the wrong side of the road on a motorcycle not made for American roads and had only had it a couple of days. Nothing is worth that, not a thing, God was watching out for us that night. Thankfully my friend only had minor physical injuries but the emotional scars will never heal, and that poor family that the young man left behind.  PleaseTHINK before you DRINK and then DRIVE. Always pick a designated driver who drinks NO ALCOHOL.

This also goes for all of you that text and drive. It's the same as being drunk. Nothing is that important that you can't pull over or wait until you get home. You probably say it won't happen to you because you know you are safe when you do it but it can happen to anyone. It only takes one split second for an accident to happen, and it is not your driving you have to worry about all the time either it is the other drivers.

Safe a life, Drive safe!
