Not all drunken driving victims die

Those who know me know that drunken driving is a serious topic for me. My cousin was killed by a drunk driver almost six years ago. Frankly, American drunk driving laws are a sick joke. A few years ago in Michigan, a man was arrested for DUI. He was found to have had more than 10 prior arrests. Of course, getting arrested doesn’t guarantee conviction, thanks to attorneys who care more about making money than making sure a drunk driver answers for their crime.

As you’ll find from this Website, not every victim of drunken driving dies. I encourage you to visit Jacqui’s site and read her story. Think about her anytime a celebrity gets arrested for DUI. Yes, we’re human, but when we engage in risky behavior that could harm others, we cross the line.
