OK, I give up. What part of consuming a alcoholic beverage or two, then driving a motor vehicle don't people understand? Her insurance company will say good-bye, and then she'll have to go to a high risk company, and get a part time job to pay for it.

How lucky is everyone driving that night that she hit a bolder and not them or their loved one?! This is God's way of protecting us from the morons!
