“After dinner, as everyone left the restaurant together, we realized that Rachel lived the closest to where I was staying. So she offered to drop me off. I believed her to be competent to drive and not impaired at all. We were stooped shortly after we left.
“At first, I hestitated to respond to this story. But I now see that people are willing to think the worst. So my wife, Tamara, and I believe we have to address this.
