Reckless Driving and Driving under the Influence of Alcohol
Oftentimes people just don't think the consequences of their driving drunk. It is a totally condemnable, irresponsible and ruthless act to drive a car drunk. Life of not just the person who is drunk is imperiled and endangered, but also the lives of people met along the streets, not to mention the damage brought about to properties. The psychological effect, the trauma and shock caused by road mishaps are also another thing. My brother-in-law and a friend, happened to meet road accidents in contrasting situations at different periods. The former, drive his motorcycle drunk and he hit a man driving a bicycle. The latter, had his car smashed by an overtaking motorcycle, driven by a drunk driver. In all these instances, the measly amount i was able to aid can not and can not ever compensate the anguish, anxieties and other psychological effects these accidents had on me, which only science can tell. Wishing that all drivers will be more considerate and pro-life.
