What are the primary reminders from this story?
Drunk Driving is Not Reserved to Any Age
People drink and drive when they are old and when they are young. I can't tell you how many times I started to notice work associates getting up from a meal, after having a few drinks and not thinking twice about getting behind the wheel of a car. Sure it might just be a few drinks, but there wasn't even any thought about it. It seems that regardless of the age, people still seem to think that they will never get caught or they will never hurt someone while driving drunk.
Drunk Driving Always Seems to Hurt the Innocent the Most

It's terrifying to know that other people might be drinking and driving on the road.
