Share this with your teens. Share this any friends or family who might be tempted to drink and drive. This isn't hokey. It isn't corny. It's reality. This is the risk you take with others' lives when you drive impaired or distracted.

Drunk driving contributed to more than 15,000 fatalities in 2006. Sometimes, they are the lucky ones.
