F one of my kids called and told me they got a ticket for drunk driving in PA, this would not be a happy mama. I know kids (and adults) make mistakes and do stupid things. We lost a son to his making a stupid choice that took his life. Of course it hurts the many that love him and will forever be a scar on my heart. But when I think of someone driving while drinking, not only is it endangering them, it’s also endangering any in the vehicle, and those driving or walking any where near the drunk driver.
I would surely hope and pray, if one of my kids came home with a DUI it would be the first time and absolutely last time. I would hope and pray it scared them so badly, maybe even spending time in jail with us NOT coming to their immediate rescue, would get their mind thinking in the right direction. How thankful we would be that no one got hurt. Of course, if there was real remorse, getting the best DUI lawyer in Philadelphia would be a top priority. No, we would not want him off easily, just to get out of it, and would hope there would requirements for them to take classes, give time to the community and even have a suspended license. Sometimes things really have to hurt, to learn.
Just knowing the Pennsylvania DUI laws and barely staying under the limit is not the best solution either. Both kids and adults alike need to understand the ramifications of any type of driving after drinking and even using drugs and then driving. You can get the best drug offense lawyers or DUI attorney, but if a person continually drives drunk or with using drugs, the irresponsibility can take many lives – their own and others.
