Drunk driving is a serious problem that continues to take thousands of deaths each year. Too many innocent lives been lost to drunk driving. A death from drunk driving does not only affect the victim but it affects everyone around them such as family and friends. One night, one drink, one mistake is all it takes for drunk driving to take its toll. There are many solutions to prevent drunk driving, but they will only work if we put them into play.
If this happened to the driver you would regret the choice of being on your phone. Car accidents are most common from distracted drivers. If the driver was to take their eyes off the road for a few seconds it could lead to something very serious. For example, the driver could run off the road, hit someone or something, or they could even run stoplights or stop signs causing them to get a ticket. If you had a family member or a friend in the car you would not only run the risk of you getting hurt for your actions, but also hurting them.
Alcohol damages your liver, your liver helps clean your blood. Alcohol also destroys your brain cells or stop your brain from developing. Don’t you want to learn so you can prepare for the career you want to go into? Alcohol can also make you become violent and it is also illegal. In the article “http://www.ceasar-boston.org/teens/tenreasons.php” the author stated, “Kids who start drinking before age 15 are 4 times more likely to develop alcoholism than someone who waits until they are 21 before they start.” Kids should not drink until they are twenty-one, and when they turn twenty-one they should not drink while under the
Tag? When the author mentions that alcohol can lead a drunk person to behave in a way that a sober person would likely not, it could lead to teen pregnancy, rape, and suicide. Another scenario is a car accident that could have been prevented if alcohol was not involved pg . Those definitely do not bring happy thoughts to the readers minds.

Having the legal drinking age at 21 is actually counterproductive in stopping teenagers and college students from drinking. In fact, it results in underage drinkers consuming even more alcohol. Since they don’t know when’s the next time they can get their hands on alcohol, they are more inclined to binge drink as much alcohol as they can. This massive consumption of alcohol in a short amount of time can lead to a lethal overdose or lethal accident such as drunk driving. If people were not afraid of being denied their alcohol, then they would not take such risks and would rather drink at a moderate pace.
Making them legal could be beneficial but there would be problems with people being allergic to different enhancers so it will still leave them at a disadvantage. I believe that allowing enhancers in sports will defeat the purpose of competition because it would just become a contest to see who can become the biggest or fastest from a drug. Also allowing this would cause problems outside the athletic world because news would get around that athletes can use them so everyday people would want the same perks which would lead to more overdose deaths than there already is today which is up to about 20,000 people per year (“Overdose Death Rates”).

Many high school parties are filled with alcohol and other drugs, and if under the influence, driving becomes dangerous for themselves and everyone else on the road. Driving under the influence is also illegal and the cause of many deaths every year.

Having larger penalties will make especially teenagers rethink their decisions since they have a long way to go, so why risk it and not call a taxi instead? The young generation is also growing and they are moving on to the road. Even if the teens aren’t drinking and driving there can be others driving impaired which is putting the risk to our younger generation which are the future for our
Today drinking isn't something that is uncommon in today's world. People from the ages of sixteen to eighty are drinking every single day. The only problem with drinking is alcoholism, people get addicted and do rash things that hurt them but also hurt their families.
