Q: I was the designated driver one night for my friend who was drinking. i
dropped her off at her house in her van and then went back to where i was staying. the next morning it had been broken into, the stereo ripped out and the window smashed in. Am I obligated to help pay for the stereo and window since i drove the car and parked it where i did?
A: No, you are not. You performed an act of kindness and did your best to keep both your friend and her van safe. It was unfortunate that the car was vandalized on your watch, but it was not your responsibility.
