Drunk Man Lets 7-Year-Old Boy to Drive Him Home
Date:9/4/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

According to Sky News, Australia, (6/24) in their news story, Boy, 7, 'Caught Driving Drunk Man Home', police arrested a drunk man after pulling over a car on Australia's Gold Coast and finding a 7-year-old boy driving him home. The vehicle was traveling at 3 a.m. without its headlights on when police stopped the car.

"A man has been charged with serious traffic offenses after police intercepted a car allegedly being driven by a seven-year-old boy at Surfers Paradise in the early hours of this morning," police said. The man said he was too drunk to drive.

Fortunately, no one was injured, but alcohol abuse can cause serious health issues up to and including death for drinkers and innocent bystanders. Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, located in sunny South Florida, features a trained medical staff who will design a personalized plan of recovery for alcohol as well as drug dependent clients. In an upscale, 24/7 state-of-the art environment, clients are greeted by luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the individualized care by the attentive staff.

As reported in Boy, 7, 'Caught Driving Drunk Man Home', the 41-year-old man was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and being an adult in charge under the influence of alcohol. The boy's relatives are now taking care of him.

Queensland state transport minister Scott Emerson said he was stunned. "I shake my head and am shocked by the madness of this," Mr. Emerson said. “I have been out there nearly every day talking about our road toll, that it's too high."

Joel Tucker, RAC Queensland's senior road safety adviser, said it was fortunate no one was hurt.

"Children at that age don't have the mental or physical capabilities to drive a car safely," he said.

“In addition to great health risks, alcohol abuse could cost you your job, family and self worth. Take action by checking into a detox center such as Harbor Village that offers safe, effective treatment,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
