Be careful what you wish for.
A 38-year-old man died on October 30 after he ran into multiple parked cars in Rome, Georgia. The man, who has been identified as Joshua Paige, sadly posted to his Facebook page earlier in the day sharing his excitement for finally getting his license back.

Paige's post on Facebook read: "years if back and forth with no license or car we’ll finally it’s all behind me and I’m back on the rd they can never take my lisence again."
Jenny Wheat-Weatherby, a Facebook friend of Paige's tempered his excitement with a message reminding him that, “Yes they can!! Don’t Forget that!! Never say never!! Keep doing good proud of you.”
So next time you're hoping in a car, be it for the first time today, or the first time in a long time, say a prayer, wear your seatbelt, and drive carefully.
