A MOTHER’S PLEA ON DUIS

A MOTHER’S PLEA ON DUIS

The tragedies that are caused by drunk driving can leave an indelible mark on families and entire communities. In a tradition that Z107.7 has been part of since we signed on the air, we bring you this reminder from a mother who lost her child to a drunk driver. Here is Patricia Fowler…
Four thousand DUI arrests, 481 DUI-related traffic collisons, 265 DUI-related injuries, and 22 DUI fatalities. And that has been just in the last 13 years. These statistics are from our CHP office. Now add 2,033 DUI arrests and 8 fatalities from 2002 to 2011; these statistics are from our Sheriff’s office. Hello, I’m Patricia Fowler and it has been 25 years since our DUI crash. If it hadn’t been for a drunk driver in November 1986, today, July 15, would have been our son Sean’s 32nd birthday. I would like to thank Officer Eric Brewer and Sgt. James Porter for supplying these statistics to me today. It really brings home my message to the Morongo Basin. Please don’t drive impaired and please don’t drink and drive.
