He’s a living example of horrible choice.
And amidst serious crashes involving alcohol in and around Calgary, as well as a warning from Lethbridge police after seven impaired drivers were pulled over in a two-hour span over the weekend, Randy Fowler is out with a familiar message: don’t drink and drive.
Fowler was behind the wheel of his truck after a night of partying more than three decades ago.
He hit the ditch and rolled, killing his best friend, injuring another and leaving him with his own life-altering injury.
“You don’t have a choice in picking the injury,” Fowler tells Global News. “If you’re going to make that kind of stupid decision to drink-and-drive and not wear a seatbelt, that means you’re going to pay.”
“I’ll probably be paying for the rest of my life for that decision.”
Meantime, MADD is getting ready to launch its annual Red Ribbon campaign on Tuesday, in hopes of spreading that same message about not driving after having some drinks.
