“The guy who did this gets a maximum of ten years, my daughter gets a life sentence.”
We’ve just about all done it—and when we’re drunk we think “ah I can do it it’s a hassle to come back and get my car I’m fine I’ll be careful and go on side streets…”
But we have to remember: it affects others, just as often as it comes back to us.
With thanks for the tip to Reddit (read the comments here):
Dont Drink and Drive – The Victim’s Side of The TraumaThis is a small clip of a man speaking about his daughter who was a victim of a collision in which the other driver was drunk. i have decided to share this video because it is a topic that lies in the background; in the shadows. And i believe deserves some more light, and sincerity.
This is not me or my video, but I do have special permissions from the author that allow me to share this story with LiveLeak. I hope it made you think.
please keep the comments respectful folks.”
