Please Don’t Drink And Drive

Let this be one of your New Year’s resolutions — don’t drink and drive.

After almost 37 years of representing auto accident victims, I have seen far more than my share of the misery drunk driving can cause. Everyone always thinks it won’t happen to them, that even though they’re a bit tipsy they’ll be able to drive all right. Don’t do it! The potential consequences are just too devastating. Have a designated driver or call a cab when you’ve had even a little too much to drink.

Here are the latest figures from Mothers Against Drunk Driving:

In Texas, 1,677 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes in 2006.

In the United States, nearly every 30 minutes someone is killed in an alcohol-related crash — approximately 17,602 in 2006.

Of the 42,642 total traffic fatalities in 2006, 41 percent were alcohol-related.

Surveys estimate that 10.8 million people aged 12 to 20 years used alcohol in 2006. Of these, 7.2 million were binge drinkers, and 2.4 million were heavy drinkers.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
