Drinking And Driving Ruins Lives
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Eight people have lost their lives in recent
drunk driving accidents. According to officials, the eight victims who died from suspected DUI
crashes in San Diego happened in just the last four weeks. Many wonder
why these tragedies have been so rampant as of late. There were five defendants
charged with DUI murder or manslaughter in the first five months of 2016,
according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s office. The
California Highway Patrol says it is frustrating that after intense efforts
to reduce drinking and driving they still continue to see it happen on
roadways across the state.
CHP Officer said organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, MADD,
have made a dramatic difference and do a great job of educating people.
Education and awareness that drinking and driving ruins lives is important.
CHP also wants people to plan ahead. If you know you are going to drink,
have a plan to get home without getting behind the wheel drunk.
The National Transportation Safety Board has proposed lowering the blood
alcohol level from .08 to .05. in an effort to reduce the nation’s
DUI’s. Others say solutions such as breathalyzers and interlock
devices that won’t let you operate your vehicle if you have been
drinking might help.
