Everyone knows that drinking and driving is illegal and not safe. We hear it everyday. From teachers, parents, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D), and all of the cross and flowers on the side of the road. Even commercial on TV that advertise drinking tell you not to drink and drive or to drink responsibly. Like the one commercial where the people order pizza for delivery because they need a ride home and do not want to drive drunk. Even when they are drunk, they know better. It would probably be better not to drink at all because then you do not have to try to justify driving.
So maybe you decide to be the “responsible” one and drive all of your drunk friends home. Well that too can be dangerous. On Sunday at 12:30 a woman driving an SUV Crashed into the front of a medical supply store in Portland off of Burnside. The driver was sober but the passenger was not. According to the police report, the driver had offered to f\drive her friend home but they got into a fight and the passenger grabbed the steering wheel causing them to crash through the front window of Choice Medical Supplies.
As with every post this one also has a lesson. Aside from the obvious, do not drink and drive, there is also do not drink at all. Not you, not your friends, that solves all your problems because then no one has to worry about driving home. Just don’t do it. It is not worth the risk.
