1) Gas prices will go up
2) City police will be out with their sobriety checkpoints
For those of you who drink and drive, this warning is for you. I’ve got a couple friends who have lost their licenses for a year due to drinking and driving … AND THOSE WERE THE LUCKY ONES.
A friend of my mom’s lost her son due to a drinking and driving accident. For those of you who say, “oh, that’s because they were wasted, I’m never that drunk when I drive”, you’re an idiot. Really.
Your friends could very well say that you’re fine because they’re drunk too and just want a ride home (or to the next party). That doesn’t work.
What I’ve found is that it’s way more enjoyable to just take a cab or arrange to have a girlfriend/boyfriend pick you up later. I’m 27 and if I called my mom at 3 AM after a night of drinking because I needed a ride, she would still come get me because the alternative of me driving home could end much worse.
Moral of the story? Grow up and be responsible. Take a cab and just drink responsibly!!! Because if you are drunk, I’ll be the sober driver behind you calling the cops on you.
