Great thread and great reminder to everyone...even with out drinking and speeding involved it is a very dangerous thing with the cell phone, stereos, texting, etc.

Saw too much of this when I was a reserve FF/EMT for 10 years.

Great message! At 19 my daughter got hit with a DUI, my insurance was cancelled because she lived under my roof, this after 30 years of clean driving on my part. Was I pissed because I had to get high risk insurance? Take a guess.

Regardless of that don't risk your life and those innocent people sharing the road with you, it's just not worth it. I spent 28 years as a Fire Fighter, I've seen enough senseless tragedy.

It's that time of year, when college kids finally get back home and all those high schoolers are finally graduating.

With the return of the college frosh, eager to party home, and the seniors that are ready to celebrate, the roads tend to be more dangerous. Grad parties + inexperience = greater negative potential.

If you're one of those high schoolers/college students, please be safe with your celebrations. Underage drinking is illegal, we all know this. If you're at a party with some sort of alcohol present make sure that nobody that drinks is allowed to drive.

"blah blah blah I'm good to go!" "I've done this before, don't worry"
BS. Do not allow them to drive, and do not drive yourself. Find someone 100% sober to drive you.
We've all heard the speeches from our teachers and our parents, but let me tell you.
Going to the funeral of your friends is worse than you can possibly imagine.

And to everyone else that's in the vicinity of local high schools, be careful! There's always those few that let hormones and teenage naivete/stupidity go to their heads.



I write this because I've lost way too many friends around graduation/beginning of summer. If only one graduating member of TW reads this and it makes an impression, it was worth writing.

Last year two guys that I had gone to school with since elementary decided to drive home drunk and spun off a wet road, both died at the hospital hours later. They stayed alive just long enough for their parents and friends to make it to the hospital before they passed away.

This was the night of graduation.

A few days later, a truck full of kids going to see a late-night movie was hit head-on by a drunken partier trying to get home before his curfew. Both drivers were killed instantly, and the rest of my friends were hospitalized for weeks.

I know I'm not always the most serious guy on TW, but I just want to put out this friendly neighborhood reminder out to everyone that's going to be out and about the next few weeks.

Drunk driving isn't worth the risks, I know the LEOs on here have their stories as well.
Avoiding roads around high-school parties has its value as well.
I'm not graduating til next year but +1 for posting

I here ya on this. I live just around the corner from our HS and come home from work at the same time they are getting out. I try to be extra careful since there is always at least one showing their arsh leaving school. And several of these kids here drive or have Hummers, Lexus's, lifted Jeep Wranglers, and so on.

And yes I know I showed my arsh at that age, maybe not as bad and as often as I see these kids doing, and I didn't drive a fast vehicle like many I've seen. Also, we didn't have the distractions of cell phones, Ipods, or whatever like they have now. That plus inexperience is scary.

I graduate from HS in less than 3 weeks and I've never smoked or drank before. I have sent a text message while at a stop light but thats about it. After watching that video im even more aware of the consequences of simple,stupid, unavoidable actions. Good thread Kone.

We normally use those small yellow ones.

For DUI's we use dual green. (On our units they're gray. If you've really pissed us off we bust out the orange ones. Then you know you're fucked...14ga. One off from buckshot sized)
