Feedback from participants:
It really gets you to thinking about the impact of drinking and driving.
Changed my view on how drinking and driving affects everyone. Saw firsthand what it can do.
It’s unfortunate to hear about the stories that have impacted these families but it helps you realize what can happen and who you actually affect in your actions.
Just overwhelming hearing both stories, knowing that I could have caused so much heartache to my mother and family or knowing I could have hurt someone and not realize it because I was too drunk!
The stories were strong and eye opening. I am here to drive my daughter and my hope is that she will take away a lot from this. It surely will open communication on the drive home.
The heartfelt stories really brings it to reality that I am blessed to be alive and didn’t hurt anyone. I will do my part now and not drink and drive.
