It is not unusual at the end of a Victims’ Impact Panel for two or three people who were sitting in the audience to mention to the speakers that they themselves have also been affected by a drunk driver.  Many people will share their own personal story about a friend or loved one that was killed by someone’s choice to drink and drive.  One lady commented, “I’ve made a few wrong choices in my life but never injured anyone nor did I get caught.  I was one of the lucky ones.  I do know of a young lady that was killed in a car accident recently.  I was at the same bar she was at and she was the last person I talked to that night.  She never made it home.  I did.”
