Letter: Owner of the ‘ice car’ ought to be applauded

Owner of the ‘ice car’ ought to be applauded

The news of the “ice car” has gone around the world, and often with teasing and discrediting the owner for leaving his car parked overnight. The important point is that he apparently had a few drinks with friends and didn’t feel responsible enough to get behind the wheel. If only so many other people had this good sense, we wouldn’t have so many needless tragedies.

Rather than be made fun of, I believe this young man should be a model for others to make wise choices that will result in only an inconvenience rather than taking the lives of themselves and/or others by driving while intoxicated. How often have we heard, “it was only a few drinks”? Kudos to this individual; we should be proud of him.
