If You’re Lucky Drunk Driving Will Land You in Rehab
Written by Lorraine on July 12, 2012
Summertime is upon us! It’s time to kick back and relax with barbeques, the beach, friends and family. However, for some, enjoying a cold beer or two or three can lead to disaster. Drunk drivers beware! Police will be working double time to ensure our safety so we can all enjoy this sweet slow time in the year.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 32% of all traffic fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. I think the most disturbing bit of information is that the average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before their first arrest, according to the Centers for Disease Control. With so much drunk driving going on, we all have been affected in someway, whether we have been victims, or know someone that has been affected by drunk driving or we have driven drunk. Drunk driving can cause so much devastation as we endanger not only our lives but also the lives of others. Either way you look at it, it is a major problem. I challenge you to ask yourself and be honest, “Do I drink and drive?” If you answered yes, then you may have a problem with alcohol.
There is a silver lining to all of this and it comes in the form of alcohol rehab. Recovery Connection can connect you with the best rehab center to help you break the habit of drunk driving.
