WTF Radio will explore the pitfalls of how drunk drivers are the #1 killer of under 18 year old youth and how the BAC (blood alcohol concentration) system is designed so that nearly all responsible drinkers break the law despite responsible consumption. The way the BAC system is set up is much like ticketing bicyclers for exceeding a posted 15 mph speed limit on a beach boardwalk in California. One should ask: "How are cyclists to abide by a system which measures speed when bikes have no speedometers which to measure speed by?"
Enforced public BAC levels are as an ineffective measuring tool to those in need, though conveniently abscent from public access, as is the ability of drinkers to accurately predict their own BAC levels under .08 without any device or instrumentation. And those law makers overseeing DUI's almost assume drinkers are somehow suppose to "know" that their BAC levels exceed as little as a 10th of a percent above the legal limit so as to avert driving under the influence and breaking the law when exiting a bar.
And how is knowing ones BAC's done without any measuring device? By way of reciting the alphabet without missing a letter, walking a self-imposed foot-to-toe 20 step sobriety line test or "feeling" that one can handle an automobile responsibly?
I'm not sure these methods would be considered fail safe under the eyes of the law. The current nation wide technology most law enforcement agencies reliably and accurately utilize is the fuel cell breathalyzer test.
So the question then becomes why doesn't every single on premise drinking establishment provide such a measuring device so that cusomers can account for their legal limit of blood alcohol consumption prior to getting behind the wheel of an automobile? This is the question we will challenge and try to get to the root of.
This Sunday, attorney Jeff Weinstein will be speaking with Kimberly Berrier, a survivor of a horrific drunk driving accident. When Kimberly was 18 months old, she, her Mother and a family friend were hit head on by a drunk driver - The driver had just left a bar.
Seconds before the impact, Kimberly's mom, Andrea flung her entire body around her child, saving Kimberly's life. Andrea took the full force of the impact and broke almost every bone in her body. She had multiple injuries, surgeries and lost large amounts of blood. She survived for three weeks but ultimately lost her life as a result of the injuries she sustained. She was 26 years old.
"I don't think people realize how their actions can affect generations of people, not just the people involved in the incident itself."
Kimberly will discuss the tragedy that was caused by a drunk driver and the impact it had on her life and others.
This Sunday, attorney Jeff Weinstein will be speaking with Tammi Branch. Tammi's 18 year old son was tragically killed last year by a drunk driver. She will share her story with listeners and will also discuss how she became involved with the organization, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
"Eric's death is what brought me to do what I am doing. I don't want another parent to get the phone call that I received, or to ever show up at a crash scene like I did, and go home empty-handed and broken-hearted. Because of that, I want change." - Tammi Branch
