Perhaps the only thing more dangerous than a drunk driver is an underage drunk driver. The vast majority of drunk drivers fall between the age of 21 and 24. Alcohol-impaired driving ability coupled with a serious lack of experience driving in the first place makes for a very deadly combination. Sadly, some parents condone underage drinking and, in doing so, make Tennessee roads less safe for everyone.
For example, a 49-year-old mother was recently charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after she was found hosting a party at her house with 25 underage drinkers. The street outside the house was lined with cars, though it remains unknown which teens were intending to drive home that evening. Many of the teens drinking in the house were as young as 15 years old. Thankfully, the police arrived and handed the underage teens over to their parents before they hit the road, intoxicated and with little driving experience.
