Why I don't drink and drive ~

Postby Jo » Dec 12th, 2012, 4:39 pm

Please be aware, images are disturbing and most decidedly not for children to see:

What a very well put together video. Hopefully people realize that the title could also be "why I learned to drive properly" or "why I don't text and drive."

I saw this video a couple of years ago. It certainly doesn't get any less gruesome or any easier to watch. It should be required viewing for all drivers. I suspect it would be very powerful in a high school class. Might save a life or two.

Thank you Jo! This should be shared with everyone!

My father was a volunteer fireman back in the 60's and 70's and hauled me off to several fatal car accidents here in Kelowna by the time I was a teen, and long before I had a driver's license.

Still keep those gruesome images in mind to this very day...

Luckily for me, alcohol served as a gateway drug to marijuana which then eventually allowed me to be weaned off of mind altering substances or avoid them altogether.

At least for when I drive...
