There is no reason why anyone should be using a smartphone while driving. There's no reason why anyone should drive after drinking alcohol. There's no reason why anyone should speed. Yes, people say that they're in a hurry -- and maybe they are. But when you consider the terrible loss of life that happens throughout the world -- on a daily basis -- because of negligent and unlawful driving habits, there is no reason and no excuse good enough to put someone in danger by breaking the law.
Imagine you're driving to work at 6 a.m. one morning, when a drunk driver T-bones your vehicle. You are lucky to survive with your life, but you don't escape without a few serious injuries.

This pain and suffering -- added to the financial costs related to your medical care and lost income due to not being able to work – has turned a horrible situation into a horrific one.
