Striker laws should be enforced on the consumption of alcohol. Alcohol begins to take detrimental effects on your body in early usage, cause fatal and deadly accidents, and could simply be stopped by creating striker laws on alcohol. A high percentage of people drink alcohol on a daily basis, knowing that drinking alcohol has a long-term effect on your body, in fact, 86.4 percent of people ages 18 or older reported that they drank alcohol at some point in their lifetime; 70.1 percent reported that they drank in the past year; 56.0 percent reported that they drank in the past month.

Finally, I believe that tougher DUI laws should be enacted. For starters, people forget how many innocent people get killed by drunk drivers. People are not taking it into consideration, that tougher DUI laws are to help people from getting injured and or killed.

The majority of people might think teenage crash rates are high because of texting and driving; however, several causes of these young driver wrecks are from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation will cause teenagers to possess a “strong tendency toward brief mental lapses” which “greatly increase the risk” of car crashes and accidents (Wahlstrom 31). Teenagers have an increasing number of wrecks from sleep deprivation every day. The more sleep they receive from starting school later, the more likely the teenagers would arrive at school safely with no car crashes. “When you are sleep deprived, you are as impaired as driving with a blood alcohol content of .08%, which is illegal for drivers in many states” (National Sleep Foundation).
The pure thought to get caught by the police or your parents is frightening to teens or underage drinkers and that 's why people use binge drinking. Binge drinking is defined as excessive amounts of alcohol consumed in a short period of time. Teens do this because when your illegally drinking you don 't particularly have a lot of time to drink so you just do it as fast as you can to use the time you have with your friends to get wasted but to be home before curfew. Many accidents and deaths have happened because of binge drinking, and we could lower the chances of binge drinking by lowering the legal drinking age to 18.

Once an individual gets up into the range of 10 to 15 drinks at a time, the consequences can be severe”. The way binge drinking has tragically put a damper on the university’s student body because that puts health risk on some students. They are not used to drinking that much in their life and especially at parties. College students either throw up and are blackout drunk not realizing what they are doing or saying mostly slurring their words, not even walking straight, even drinking and drive which leads to fatal accidents. Also Dr. George states.
