    • Drunk driving isn’t an accident. First that you need after and acident - to hire a good lawyerWhen I was a senior in highschool, three of my classmates were involved in a car-bus collision at highway speed. The two unbelted front seat passengers were killed. One’s head went through the windshield. The other was decapitated by the door frame. The belted driver was seriously injured but did survive. Three votes for wearing a seatbelt. The belted bus driver got a scratch on his leg. Make that four votes.In the course of my nearly 40 year career as a claims adjuster, I heard many people argue against wearing seatbelts, usually due to fear of being “trapped” in a wreck. There is even a doohickey one can buy online to enable one to slice through a jammed seatbelt or to break a window. I’m sure you’ve seen this device. It’s worthless because it’s too short and the window-punch doesn’t have enough leverage to break a window. The seatbelt cutter is worthless because the damn thing is going to be stored out of the way in your glove box, where you can’t reach it anyway. It used to cost $39, but now you can get it for $5.95—which is about what it’s worth.

    • Drunk driving isn’t an accident. First that you need after and acident - to hire a good lawyer. Drunk driving is the result of choosing to drink too much and then choosing to drive. The person had complete control over herself when she made the decision to get that drunk and didn’t provide for another way to get wherever she was going while drunk.

      She may not have killed the person on purpose, but she got into the car on purpose. Chose to turn the keys on purpose. Chose to drive on purpose. And killed someone.

      She ended someone’s life. And she did so not because she had an accident, but because she set up the steps that lead to the person’s death. And listen to her. All she talks about is how she had her future taken away. As if she wasn’t somehow involved in what happened. No one took her future. She gave it away. That child who lost her mother, she had a huge part of her life taken away. She is the victim. Not this woman.

      If she had been driving 5 miles an hour over the speed limit, wasn’t drunk and hit someone, that is an accident. That isn’t going to get someone sent to prison, assuming she wasn’t doing something else wrong. But when you drink and drive you have made a choice. And that choice gets you 10 years in prison if some innocent gets in your way and dies.
