Drinking & Driving is a Tragedy

Drinking & Driving is a Tragedy

Today, I took some timeout to watch the local news at midday.  Halfway into the program, I had to walk away.  I walked away saddened, because it dawned on me that there are so many precious lives being wasted.  Yes, wasted for short-term pleasure.

In the featured story, there was a young mother of 31 years old who was placed behind bars, with bail set at $200,000 cash, while her infant child was admitted to the University Hospital, suffering from injuries sustained in an auto accident.  The accident occurred yesterday morning as they were returning home from a party where the mother had apparently been drinking.  Sobriety tests confirmed that she had been drinking.  She lost control of the vehicle, and ran into a pole.  The child's condition is currently listed a serious. 

With all the initiatives by the State of New Mexico, Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, Law Enforcement, and countless other local governments around the state, I just cannot fathom why this tragedy continues.  When will it end?   Are people so desensitized, that they cannot make better choices?

Luckily, the accident did not involve another vehicle. Lord knows, Albuquerque has seen its share of alcohol related deaths.  I have not had any alcohol related tragedies in my family; I hope never to have one.  There are no good outcomes from these incidents.  Usually, lives are lost, families are broken up and it seems to be a never ending problem. Frankly, drinking and driving is a tragedy. 

As we approach the holiday season, it is my hope that residents will make better choices.  Let's endeavor to make this a season to be truly joyful.  No alcohol related accidents.
