    when are people ever going to learn not to mix alcohol with driving a motor vehicle? So many have died. what will it take to prove to people that if you are going to operate a motor vehicle that alcohol is NOT a good part of that mix? It doesn't matter if you are on snow, water, dirt, or a road, alcohol does not fit in the equation! Another family has to grieve because of it.
