It’s prom and graduation time again. It means parties and fun. But, keep in mind the dangers of drinking and driving. First, it’s illegal to be drinking before you’re 21. If you are caught, the loss of license is for a long time. But, beyond that drinking and driving brings along extra consequences of lives lost and potentially long criminal sentences.

Mark Bello recently posted a group of great tips on this topic:

They’re not pretty, but they get the point across. Make sure you and your friends keep them in mind.

I’ve enjoyed seeing young teens out and all dressed up as they head off to these great events. But, We’ve also unfortunately represented the families of those who were injured as the result of speeding or stupid events from those nights.

Get home safe.
