    When will people stop drinking and driving. Remember you have family on the road also. If you end up killing one of them, how are you going to feel or someone elses family. Think before you get behind the wheel. Take a taxi home or call someone to come and get you. Better still don’t drink if your going to drive.

    Do insurance companies pay for repairs when the accident is caused by drunk driving?

    If the car is a write off the drunk driver should pay for a new car out of pocket and her insurance should pay for other compensation and time lost from work.
