Maybe you've heard about the trial currently going on right now concerning the Westmoreland County mother who was accused of providing alcohol to three teenagers. The teens then got into one car and were killed in a car accident.
Pennsylvania State Police found that the three had been drinking from half a keg of beer. The teenager who was driving had a blood alcohol level of .14 – nearly twice the legal limit. The woman faces two dozen charges in the Greensburg Salem High School grads' deaths. But she also has to deal with the guilt of knowing that she contributed to the death of three teenagers who had barely begun to live.
"When You Host, You Lose the Most." You might see this slogan on billboards as you're driving, and this tragedy is an unfortunate example of what can happen when you aren't a responsible social host.
No matter what sort of party you or your children may be having, never provide alcohol of any kind to young people under the age of 21. You can't afford it, and neither can they. Learn more about drunk driving and underage drinking.
