Many of us make decisions that we regret. However, the decision to drink and drive is one that should never be made because of the serious injuries such a decision may cause. Certainly the risks one takes when getting behind the wheel under the influence must be apparent by the plethora of tragic drinking and driving related accidents in the news. In spite of this, incidences of drinking and driving continue to occur every day.
Drunk driving accidents sadly claim hundreds of lives every year. The crashes usually involve a tragic storm of negligence, serious injury and medical expenses. This was especially true in the case of a Connecticut police officer who, in 2010, fatally injured a Windsor Locks teenager when he drove negligently in his community.
