Drive Undrunk…

Drive Undrunk; self explanatory by itself. Drinking is not bad, but it isn’t good either, for health, for state of mind.

“Drive safely, your family needs you” is one of the hoardings I see on the high ways in Pune. That speaks volumes when think.

Drunk driving is nothing short of a suicidal act. Given a chance to go ahead, some people prove how easy it is at times to concentrate on their own mental happiness, ignoring the most eye-catching world happenings. Leave the world, to them, even their families seems no business.

Irresponsibility plays it’s own part, no denying. Giving it a thought before proceeding ahead to be seated before the steering wheel is worth saving a life or more. When it comes to driving one’s own car, doesn’t matter to the rest of the world much, but being the driver of a passenger carrier, it puts considerably extra amount of responsibility on him. Driver stands having no rights on the lives of the passengers, instead carries the huge responsibility of carrying them.

However, I only have one suggestion or request as you can well call it, driving drunk is one of the dangerous of it’s forms. It can anytime prove life ruining.

I don’t mean you all do drive drunk, but if its the case, please stay away. Rules and regulations shall not play a major role in making you drive undrunk compared to the love you have on your own family, the awaiting members of your life.

Drive undrunk, reach safely.

Hello.
If the drunk driver can't be bothered to value his/her own life, that's his/her problem, but when it comes to the well-being of passengers and innocent people on the street, that a different matter altogether.

You highlight a very common problem with drunk driving all over the world.

I totally agree with this post. Liked the ending line very much.

Thanks for sharing.

Your Song Of Love

More so because its dangerous to others on the road....

People here take a cab back home and some do that in India too now....

sometimes it's hard to refrain from driving just becuz of a buzz, but it is the right thing to do, yes.

Drunk driving is very risky.
Also for the people around.

Drink and drive, go to jail. This is the hoarding I see here. It is a strict no-no for my friends and they themselves don't prefer driving. They might be scared of the huge tickets too :)
