08 Oct Don’t Get into a Car with a Drunk Driver
There are around 10,076 people killed each year because of a drunk driver. Drunk drivers will often tell you that they are not drunk and can actually drive perfectly fine. However, you will often notice them staggering as they walk and slurring their speech. Drunk driving is not only deadly, but also not having any care for others that they can either seriously injure or kill.
If you suspect someone is about to drive drunk, it is important that you tell them not to drive. If they refuse, call 911 and report them. At the end of the day, you are saving the drivers life and those that they can possibly injure or kill. Nobody likes to be the bad guy by calling the police on someone that is out of control. However, you will thank yourself that did. You can rest at night knowing that you just saved a lot of people’s lives.
In Florida, if you kill someone because of drunk driving, you will face prison. Your prison sentence will vary. A woman by the name of Kayla Mendoza got 24 years in prison for killing 2 other young women while she was drunk behind the wheel. Even though she was sorry for the pain that she caused the family, she had no mercy from the court. The families of the victims were angry as well.
Losing a loved one to a drunk driver is one of the hardest things that you will ever have to go through. The pain that a drunk driver gives to a family is for life. If you think that you are going to be safe getting into a car with a drunk driver, you are wrong.
