A good friend sent this to me recently…
I would like to share a personal experience with my friends and family about drinking and driving. This might save you the cost and embarrassment of being arrested for a DUI. As you know, people have been known to have unexpected brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a “holiday party” with family or friends.
Well, this year, it happened to me. I was out for the evening to a party and had more than several martinis coupled with a bottle of rather nice red wine. It was held at a great Italian restaurant on the other side of town. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the limit.
That’s when I did something I’ve never done before. I took a taxi home. On the way home there was a police DUI Check Point, but since I was in a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.
These roadblocks can be anywhere and I realized how lucky I was to have chosen to take a taxi.
The real surprise to me was I had never driven a taxi before. I don’t know where I got it and, now that it’s in my garage, I don’t know what to do with it.
