When people drive drunk, they not only have slower reflexes and poor judgment, but they also tend to exhibit dangerous behaviors. This includes drag racing, speeding and road rage.
We’ve seen the excessive speeds and racing too often on many of Long Island’s roads, including Hempstead Turnpike, Old Country Road, Lido Blvd. and the Long Island Expressway. Sources are now saying that a recent Farmingdale accident on Conklin Avenue that killed 5 teenagers involved alcohol and drag racing.
When teens and adults drink and drive, it is their passengers and other drivers on the road that are most at risk for serious injury. A decision to race a car on a public street could lead to someone losing their son, daughter, mother, or father.
