Choices

Brock Franklin wasn’t a bad guy. He was just a guy who made a bad decision.

People make bad decisions daily but the difference is that this bad decision ended up killing two innocent people and ruined the lives of countless others.

That is the danger of drinking and driving. It is just too severe to be taken lightly.

Slide18

Keep In Mind….

, a true inspiration

Slide19

Want To Avoid These Consequences Completely?

1.

Bring a designated driver ahead of time- someone you know who won’t drink at the party so they will be able to drive you and your friends home.

2

.

If you’re at a party and you had more to drink than expected, then CALL someone to come pick you up or ride with someone at the party who is sober.

3

. If you see someone who is about to drive home and you think they have had too much to drink to be able to drive home safely, you must

TAKE AWAY THEIR KEYS AND DO NOT LET THEM DRIVE!!!!

Slide20

Remember

Drunk driving accidents aren’t only on the news; they don’t only happen in far away places to some random families you’ve never heard of. It can happen to ANYONE even YOU.

Slide21

Most Important Lesson

When you choose to drink only you will have to deal with the consequences (hangover, embarrassing yourself, regretting your actions etc.)

When you choose to drink

AND DRIVE

you are endangering the lives of innocent people and making them pay for the consequences of

YOUR

actions. That is not fair.
