Drinking and driving can kill the driver of the car. It will kill any passengers in the car and it can kill any pedestrians walking the streets. It will also scare the lives of the family members whose kids were in the car and the pedestrians family.

The driver is the one at cause and is the one to blame. The driver is to blame because he is the one who was not drinking responsibly.

Drinking and driving can and will kill. It can kill the driver, passenger and any pedestrians that are hanging around. If you think you can drive while intoxicated, well your wrong and you should think before you drink. The passenger should also think about what the driver is about to do and try to take his keys and call a cab. Just remember, nineteen is the legal thinking
