How common was drunken driving when you were in high school?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 6, 2007
“I would say it was fairly common. I would think that in a place like Lawrence with SafeRide and everything it would be less common, but it’s still something to be concerned about.”
“A lot more common than it should have been. I think it’s probably even more common today. Not because more kids are drinking, but because more of them have their own cars.”
“Very common. I drove drunk often, very slowly, but often. It took me a couple of years to wise up.”
“I think there is more of it now than in my high school days. When things are forbidden, they are more enticing. When I was a teacher, exchange students from countries with lower (drinking) age restrictions said it wasn’t a big problem where they were from.”
