my sincere sympathies to Tims family & friends. UNfortunately a helmet doesnt make you any less drunk. why cant everyone realize this. I hope this may wake up a few mosr people and they realize drinking and driving ( anything) is a bad combo. again my sympathies to Tims family.

I truly believe that comments should be disabled on this article.

The first comment is tremendously insensitive and inappropriate.

Spartytruth, I'm going to assume you were close to Tim, his family, or both. cathytol's comment was neither insensitive nor inappropriate. I think you're just too closely involved. cathytol expressed sympathy to Tim's family. The reference to driving drunk might hit a nerve, but the comment is not insensitive and is certainly appropriate since the article mentions alcohol to be a contributing factor. This is very sad, and my sympathy to all those who loved this young man.

Just curious. To those who disagree with both cathytol & myself ... what part do you disagree with? Offering sympathy to family & friends? The mention of him driving impaired? Is the article mistaken?

Esky49.....the OP used the term drunk, yet you used impaired. I find no mention of either in the article. You are making an assumption not based in fact. I think insensitive is a tame way to describe your reckless assumptions. Also, why do you feel the need to use someone's tragedy to illustrate a point? The FACT is neither you nor I have any idea the EXTENT to which alcohol contributed. So, inappropriate, insensitive, asinine, dimwitted, ignorant......choose any or all that apply.

All that really needs to be said here is Sorry for the families loss. No reason to pick and poke at each other on this one, this could have been anyone of our family members so treat others like you would appreciate when going thru a hard time. To the family, Keep your head up, thru every dark night theres a brighter day
