To Drive, or Not to Drive?
This blog is about clear thinking, not sensational high-profile news stories.
That said, consider this morning’s Toronto Star article “ Jack Tobin sentenced to three years in prison for drunk-driving death ”.
Based on what is printed in the article we read that:
- “ ... a pickup truck that Tobin was driving packed with five other friends, all heavily drunk after a night out, in a rooftop parking lot ...”
- “Boxall told the judge Aug. 5, noting that Tobin never intended to drive home that night ...”
That doesn’t make sense to me.
Six of you are drunk in a roof-top parking lot, about as far away as you can get without some busy-body snooping around.
And you’re NOT thinking of driving yourself home?
All six of you “heavily drunk”, no designated driver.
The bottom line is this: Whoever was in control of the vehicle was drunk.
Regardless of intentions.
And that, I believe, is against the local law.
