Car in my cul-de-sac this AM, running lights on & driver not moving.

Also had front end damage and the driver did not respond when I asked if they were alive.

So had to call the police. 1st time in 20 years at this location.

Took them a while but they are here now and the driver-a young female-taken into custody. I'm just glad they weren't dead or had a medical issue.

Bottles on the hood and cleaning up-drunk driver. I hope they get help.

Cuzz been there done that. I've been sober since 94 but before that I drove blackout drunk more than a few times & somehow never killed anybody or myself. And when I parked it sure wasn't pretty so I think that's what we had here.

2. Back when I was 16 until my 30's...

I had friends who would brag about "Driving on autopilot."

In other words, so drunk they forgot.

A few of them are dead now, a couple others went to rehab.

I look back at how stupid they were, and how stupid I could be at that age if I wanted to be.

I'm now a rather beat-up 61.

5. Sadly the driver was my neighbors daughters friend.

She drove up at 5:35 AM and dropped her off. The car didn't move after that per my home sec cam. The police took a copy of the video.

She's a juvenile-no license. And now in serious trouble.

Hope it does her good as a wake up call.
Sad.

6. Sounds like the neighbors might need some parenting advice.

Daughter not home until 5:30 am in a car driven by an extremely inebriated juvenile.
