Seat belt has saved my life, and I mean SAVED MY LIFE twice. Both events happened before the seat belt laws went into effect in Michigan. But my parent's wouldn't let me drive their cars unless I wore it... so I got used to it. I ALWAYS wear my belt. Feel naked without it. And I NEVER drink and then drive. I don't drink much, so it's not too hard for me...\

Glad you and your family/friend are o.k. I sure hope he learned as valuable a lesson as you did.

Lucky, Lucky, Lucky. Don't Play the lottery for a while you may have used up all your luck.
That officier was busy for a while.

1. DUI
2. No Seat Belts
2. Failure to control

Consider yourselves very lucky. Not going to go into details, but my brother lost his career, and a friend of ours who was his passenger that night, lost his life due to a alcohol related wreck. At least you guys can still all get together and talk about how stupid you were. Consider it a blessing.
