Inebriated Drivers at the wheel again! Saw a lot of this when I worked in the Emergency Room. It's real sad when they take away someones life! Or lives for that matter....

I don't even think one should drive when one is very upset...the endorphins kick in & can be quite fatal! Or when one is taking a medication that causes drowsiness! And yet the are out there driving........now the Tex-ting, & talking on the Cell phones....People just don't care to GET IT!
