Cautionary Christmas Tale

With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

Two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails, followed by an after-dinner liqueur. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit.

That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home.

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before... I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage, I don't know what to do with it.

Drive safely this Holiday Season!!

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.
