An emotional appeal against drunk driving…

December 4, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Came across this video of a dad advocating against drunk driving.. Mind you, this is not your average 2 mins. pitch. It leaves you with a haunting memory of a family that is trying to pick up its pieces after a horrific accident took away and shows you the lasting impact of a drunk driver on the society at large. Something about the man and his compelling but monotonous appeal still tugs my heart. Oh, please don’t think, even for a minute, that it is an isolated case.  Here are some statistics from Mothers Against Drunk Driving that will sober you to the reality:

  • In 2010, 211 children were killed in drunk driving crashes. Out of those 211 deaths, 131 (62 percent) were riding with the drunk driver.
  • In 2010, 10,228 people died in drunk driving crashes – one every 52 minutes – and 345,000 were injured in drunk driving crashes.
