Driving Drunk Not Worth the Risk on Graduation Night
- Tuesday, 24 May 2011 15:36
At the age of 18, graduating from high school is usually the biggest accomplishment of a teens’ life up to that point, and prior to 18, getting a driver’s license
is typically a teen’s biggest feat. Imagine you are graduating from high school. Completing thirteen years of school makes you feel carefree and eager to start the next phase of life, and your younger classmates follow your lead: taking advantage of every opportunity to party.
Now, imagine graduation night: the ceremony concludes, you and your classmates proceed to the after party where there is alcohol. There is so much to celebrate, and so much excitement about what the future holds. The only problem with this picture is that you still have that teenage mindset that you’re invincible. When the end of the night comes, you become more concerned with meeting curfew than protecting yourself and others from the dangers of driving under the influence
. You consider calling your parents for a ride home, but you’re too afraid to admit to them that you have been drinking. Your best friend is facing the same dilemma, but you both decide that you’ll be fine—you live just down the road.

Teen Driving Case Success
- Friday, 10 September 2010 13:52
Just wanted to say thank you again for everything you have done for JA on this case. What you worked out for him is unbelievable, considering he admitted to the possession charge. I woke up this morning relieved knowing that this issue has come to some resolve.
Now JA can move on with his life. Things for him are looking brighter. He was accepted at Kennesaw State University for spring 2011 semester and will be transferring from Perimeter. He will be completing his education there and graduate next year with a business degree.
Thank you again for all you have done.
