Each spring teens throughout the country attend a high school coming of age event, prom. While for many it is one of the most exciting evenings of their lives, it is also sometimes a night where teens make choices that most could agree are not in their best interest. One of those bad choices is sometimes the decision to drink and drive.
Because this is a matter that is often outside of the control of the parents of teens, parents in the Chicago area likely feel a sense of relief when their children decide to hire a limousine to provide transportation to and from the events of the evening. For one group of prom goers in Illinois this spring, that choice could have been disastrous however. The driver of the limousine that was hired to drive some teens to prom was charged with drunk driving.
