Please don't drink and drive. I'll try not to preach too much.
'84...I got a DUI...lost my car and driving privileges for a while. Life would never be the same but, idiot that I was
'85...I got another...45 days OC Main Jail, 3 years of "school". I caught on this time. Life would never be the same.
'97... My wife and daughter-in-law were killed by a drunk driver that backed on to Interstate 40. My daughter survived, but was thrown >300'. I've since remarried, but life will never be the same.

This little "resume" is only posted to make you think. It's just not worth it.
Please have a safe New Years for everyone's sake...S

Scott,
Second that completely. I expect on your second DUI you were cursing at the sentence, but I bet that looking back on it now you're grateful for that sharp lesson, right?

The county police in my area have already arrested over 300 people for DUI over the holiday season.

It's not worth it. Drive safe everyone!

a harsh reality Scott, if any consolation is seen it is in the decrease of incident, i think the kids are getting it, due to DARE and similar programs.....
