I personally have not been affected by drinking and driving but a friend of mine lost her boyfriend four years ago due to a drunk driver. He was 30 years old and driving home from work when a drunk driver crashed into him, killing him instantly. The drunk driver was only 19 years old. My friends life was shattered, she still has not got over it. So many lives ruined, my friends life, the family of her boyfriend, the 19 year old drunk driver who crashed into him and his family, so much misery for so many people. The sad thing is, it could have been prevented. Even sadder thing is, its an all too common occurance.
