Its ashame to receive such grave news that one of your loved ones has lost their life due to an DUI related incident.
Some parents still have teenage children, and worry because their daughter or son just got their drivers license and he/she wants to have a little fun with their friends.
Yes as a parent your child knows wright from wrong and should know not to drink and drive because as a parent thats what you embedded in he/shes brain to know how to be responsible and not to let influence affect judgement.
Friends will try to get another to drink an alcohol beverage or to do some type of drug just to have that person on the level they are on, and if this person refuses he/she gets made fun of .
So basically that's when the peer pressure comes in.
Some teenagers will be a follower more then a leader due to peer pressure and may suffer grave/legal consequences because once you listen to your friends and do something that is not wright pertaining to drugs/alcohol he/she can kill their selves and passengers or kill a family due to being under the influence.
Now its not just the teens It's adults as well going to the club or bar having more then a few drinks and getting fully intoxicated over the limit.
It's bad when your an adult and you know you are too impaired to drive but still hop behind the wheel endangering others on the road and your life.
Most of the DUI accidents are caused by a drunk driver or some one on a controlled substance "And Who Suffers"? .
The one who gets hit by that person who is driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance.
Now I have a poem that I did not write and the author is not known, but it has to do with my blog .

Many people have been touched by the following "Drunk Driving Poem." (The author is unknown.)
I went to a party, Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
"The other guy is drunk," Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pay.I'm lying here dying, Mom...
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I'll die in a short time.I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn't drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn't think.He was probably at the same party as I.
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair.
I'm lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.Someone should have told him, Mom,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm becoming very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you,
you were always there.I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didn't drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?
