Default Re: Question Drunk driving.

My father once hit a car with me and my cousin in the back seat.

He instructed my cousin and I to remember the license plate number so he could contact them the next day.

It wasn't until years later that I realized it was a hit and run.

40 years later, and I still remember the license plate - YAM608

Mine did also. She's older now and doesn't have a car, thank God!

My mother did constantly. My mother-in-law got around this though... starting when my wife was six years old, my mother-in-law used to make a bed in the back seat for her while she went into the bar. At 2am when she stumbled out, she'd wake my wife up and have her drive home. Yeah - at six years old.

That sounds so bad (and sad) :-((( I mean, good for her to acknowledge she can't drive anymore after drinking, but forcing your child, a little girl, to drive her home ... really, really bad. I hope your wife is ok. How strong must an addiction be to not realizing how sick that situation is as a mother.....

So. Many. Times. She also drove my daughters before I realized she'd relapsed, and I will never forgive myself for that. She also drove to work AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL drunk routinely. I called the police about it last year. I can't believe she hasn't her or killed someone, to be honest.
