Take responsibility when behind wheel

The dictionary defines “adult” (in part) as: pertaining to adults, as adult behavior. Is it adult to drink alcohol in excess and then think it is OK to drive? Is it adult to continue to drive when your license has been suspended or revoked? And if Henry Ford himself handed you your first set of car keys, you are probably too old to drive.

Now for those who will quickly point out that these statements are too broad, of course there are always exceptions. But is it adult to assume that you are the exception? Remember, after the damage is done, there is no bringing back the human loss caused by irresponsibility.
