Drunk Driving Kills
Imagine it’s a beautiful night and a family is driving to a movie. A man is driving a car and it slides around the corner swerving onto the wrong side of the road. The man’s car slams into the family’s car and kills the family and the man. Stronger drunk driving laws are needed to protect people from drunk drivers.
One reason to create stronger drunk driving laws is because current laws aren’t working. People who drive drunk do it more than once. In fact, drunken drivers have caused 32% of road deaths for the last ten years:
See the drunk driving statistics here.
This percentage (32%) has hardly changed in the last ten years. Current laws have not stopped drunk driving.
Another reason to make stronger drunk driving laws is because new technology can stop drunk drivers before bad things happen. States can use alcohol-ignition interlocks. A person must breathe into this device to start the car. The person must breathe into the device every so often to keep the car running. All states should use alcohol-ignition interlock devices for the safety of all drivers.
A third reason to write stronger drunk driving laws is to keep teenagers safe. Some teenagers go to a party, get drunk, and than drive drunk. Parents should be held partially responsible if their teenager drives drunk. Parents who allow drinking parties in their house get tickets in some states. Keep parents responsible for their teenagers, then teenagers are not as likely to drink and drive.
In conclusion, stronger drunk driving laws are needed to protect people from drunk drivers. Stronger drunk driving laws are needed because current laws aren’t working. New technology can stop drunk driving before bad things happen. Stronger drunk driving laws keep teenagers safe. One way to make stronger drunk driving laws is by making all states use the alcohol ignition interlock device. These devices would stop people from driving drunk. Keeping drunk drivers off the road keeps everyone safer.
