Imagine this: One night a man is driving home in his dark blue minivan. It was an early summer's night, only about eight o"clock. He went out to the corner ice cream shope to get some ice cream for his family. His favorite song was playing on the radio and he was happily singing along. All of a sudden a car out of now where comes flying out and hit his car, and he was injured very badly. The next night a woman was driving along on the highway and she was pulled over for speeding. After she was pulled over, the police spotted two grams of crack in the backseat of her car. The most typical penalty for drunk driving is license suspension or revocation follows a conviction for drunk driving. In addition, some states impose an administrative license suspension, where licenses are taken before conviction when a driver fails or refuses to take a chemical test. Now, the woman who was caught with the two bags of drugs got three days in jail and typically gets put in The Center for Drug Free Living for a while. To me, this seems quite unfair. The person who didn't physically harm anyone, gets more of the penatly. .
In today's day in age drinking and driving is a common thing. It ranges more in teenagers than it does with adults because most teenagers just don't think. They think that they are fine and they know that they will be okay to drive and that "it could never happen to them". This is the typical response from a teenager. They think that they know everything and it can happen to other people, but never to them. And as myself being a teenager, I know what im talking about. In a single year, 522 teenagers were arrested for driving while intoxicated. It is also a fact that 60 percent of all teen deaths in car accidents are alcohol-related. The biggest reason why people drink and drive is peer pressue. When you"re friend tells you that, "hey it's ok to drive, you've only had five beers" you intial reaction is to agree with what you"re friend says.
