THE DWI HIT PARADE – News and Commentary about those who choose to drive impaired.
Copyright 1990-2020 DWI HIT PARADE – THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY LLC
DEDICATED TO OUR READERS AND
To the Memory of all those killed by Drunk Driver
Notice: Some who have obtained expungements of their DWI arrests seek to have their names removed from this list. The only way that such removal can be obtained is to supply notarized and satisfactory proof of false arrest with a written statement by the arresting agency. Families of victims of drunk drivers have been consulted about such requests and they want to know how they can expunge the names of their loved ones from their tombstones.
Many of those who are arrested for DWI in the United States are listed here sooner or later; therefore if you do not wish to be on this list call a cab when you decide to party.
DWI arrests can cause loss of security clearances, job opportunities, and promotions and an increase in the cost of insurance, all of which pale in comparison to the loss of life.
There are no second chances for those killed by Impaired Drivers…therefore do not expect that an appeal for being taken off this list will be considered, other than the aforementioned avenue.
The ST. MARY’S TODAY offered a free coffin to the first drunk driver to kill themselves (only the at-fault driver) during the annual Christmas drunk, drugged, and dying season in 2007.
Bravo on Coffin Offer
To the Editor:
We read your ad for the “free coffin” and we just wanted to say: “BRAVO”.
We had never heard of your newspaper before the ad hit the Internet.
After looking through your newspaper online, we learned of your “DWI Campaign.”My husband is a coffin maker in Nevada.
We share a common sadness with others who have lost loved ones to DWI drivers.
We lost both of my husbands’ parents 9 years to a driver who was impaired.
He of course walked away from the accident.
They were killed instantly. We work very closely with the “Every Fifteen Minutes” Program here locally.
My husband is also a minister and we have a small church.
We work with many teens in community things and our church, and the #1 message we focus on the “DWI Issue”.We think what you are doing is very commendable and we too hope your coffin goes unused.Thank you,
Bryan and Dusty Schoening
