When a bunch of young adults go out to drink on a weekend and then decide to drive, the consequences can be devasting to them and to their victims. Everyone knows you must not drink and drive. The problem stems from the fact that when you are drunk, you may not remember that rule. That is why the designated driver rule is so important. Also, bartenders and servers must NEVER serve alcohol to someone who is visibly intoxicated. The latest tragegy involved the death of a 88 year old Monroe woman who was struck by Jason Grochowski, 23. His blood alcohol reading was 0.16, twice the legal limit of 0.08. He was indicted today by a Middlesex County grand jury for aggravated manslaughter and other charges and faces lengthy jail time. We must all work together to make sure senseless tragedies stop.
