A woman named Allison Wash, who is 38 years old, was found in a three-car crash with five children in her car. The police were called to the scene of the accident and initially could not see inside the vehicle. However, as they got closer, they heard the crying of children coming from the car. The police officers helped Allison and the children out of the car safely. Thankfully, there were no reported injuries and the children are now out of harm’s way. Allison has now been charged with numerous charges, including driving under the influence of liquor or drugs, driving an unregistered car, driving without insurance, and driving with a suspended license. More charges could have been possible.
This is just a small example of how dangerous drinking and driving is. Never take you or a loved ones life for granted and drink while driving. The side affects of drinking should never be tested on the road. To show you just how bad the combo of alcohol and driving are together, here are just a few short-term affects of alcohol.
- Lack of judgement
- Loss of coordination
- Memory loss
- Fatigue (tiredness)
All of the above are good reasons to NOT drive. Don’t risk it. If you need to learn more about driving and about how to drive responsibly, don’t be afraid to contact us at A-1 Driving Schools.
