If You Think Drinking and Driving Will NOT Destroy Your Life, Think Again After Watching This

Make The Promise to Never To Drink and Drive after Watching This.

What Happened?
On September 3rd, 2013, a confession video from a drunk driver named Matthew Cordle went Viral. Prior to any charges being pressed against Matthew, his message against drinking and driving went viral around the world. After one year of being in Prison incarceration, the second video below was filmed inside of prison
This is what happened in 2013: The following video was recorded and released by http://becauseisaidiwould.com on September 3rd, 2013. 7 days after the release of the following video, Matthew Cordle was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide. The mandatory prison sentence for this crime in the state of Ohio is between 2 and 8 years. On October 23rd, Matthew was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison with no chance of early release and a lifetime driver’s license suspension.

I am willing to take that sentence for one reason that I can pass on this message on to you ‘I beg you, I said the word ‘Beg’ specifically, I am begging you, please don’t drink and drive‘. Dont make the excuses that I did to make you feel better. Dont say its only a few miles or its only a few beers or you do it all the time or it will never happen to you. It happened to me. All those are just excuses to make you feel better for a decision that you know is wrong and could cause lives.  I can’t bring Mr. Canzani back and I can’t erase what i have done. You can still be saved. your victims can still be saved. So, Please…..Mathew Cordle

What Now?

After one year of being in Prison incarceration, the following video was filmed inside of prison. Matthew received an approximately 50% longer sentence than the average conviction for the same crime in the same state with the same criminal history (none).

Matthew promised himself that he would not appeal. His mission was to convince others not to make the careless and destructive decision to drink and drive.

Think about what you are doing with your freedom outthere, because once you are in here you just fade away – Mathew Cordle
