A universal feeling, right? Common sense, right? Still, there are likely dozens of drunk drivers tooling around the streets of Jamaica Plain as I write (not to mention that I biked around this city for about 10 years).
We should be beyond all of this nonsense. Activism against drunk driving lacks the controversies of, say, abortion or gay marriage, yet it still happens. I have strong personal convictions against drunk driving, as a member of my family was killed by a drunk driver. It’s fueled many a fight between me and my friends. And I’ve often had to chide myself and admit my own shame at my lack of good judgement at times.
The photograph/video at right is particularly shocking. Reveals the horrifying power of documentary journalism, but also the idiocy of a single drunk driver this past Sunday at a road race in Mexico.
