At the press conference, we heard from Colonel Edwin Roessler, Chief of Police for Fairfax County; John Myers, a drunk driving victim; and Chris Konschak, manager of MADD Virginia. Col. Roessler and John Myers both told their experiences with being a drunk driving victim. 

John Myers show what his vehicle looked like after he was t-boned by a drunk driver. 
Col. Roessler speaks about being hit head-on by a drunk driver.

Thanksgiving to New Year's is some of the deadliest time on our roadways, just last year, during this time, there were 891 drunk driving deaths around the country. Make sure to always designate a sober driver, especially during the holiday season.
