The author addressed a thirteen year old girl named Cari Lightner was walking to a carnival when she was struck and hit by a hit-and-run drunk driver and killed instantly. The author also talks about binge drinking and how if the legal drinking age is lowered, Americans would stop binge drinking;therefore, the conclusion is incorrect. She states that alcohol should be forbidden until 18-to 20 year olds precisely because they have a tendency to binge drink whether it is legal or illegal,and how college students get into a great deal of trouble due to binge drinking. Students endanger themselves and others. They sometimes even kill students.
So, if eighteen year olds were allowed to drink then their friends which are roughly around the age of sixteen or seventeen would likely have an alcoholic drink in their hand as well. “There’s No Benefit to Lowering the Drinking Age” explains, on average about eleven teens die daily as a result of drunk driving (Voas 464). When teens throw a party, alcohol is usually involved. Then once the party is over the kids have to get home somehow and they often drive themselves. When an alcoholic drink is placed in an eighteen-year-old hand decisions are made that harm them and others

America’s mayors have come to a consensus that these weapons of mass destruction are destroying the nation’s communities, cities, and families. Nutter goes on to reveal some surprising information, stating that out of the average 100,000 people that are shot each year, over 30 percent end up dying, while only 10 percent were intentional homicides (Lane 2015). Every year approximately 18,000 children are shot, only further proving the school shooter epidemic our country faces. This sort of violence is nearly exclusive to urban areas, as cities make up 15 percent of the population but account for 39 percent gun related murders and 23 percent total homicides. Nutter is proposing a ban on assault weapons, quite similar to a 1994 ban that decreased total gun murders by 6.7 percent and the types of shootings they were most often used in, specifically ones with multiple victims and police officers as victims.

Clarisse mentioned to Montag that she was afraid of kids her age because they go out and kill people like it’s normal. She said six of her friends had been shot in the last year alone while ten of them died in car wrecks. On top of that, Clarisse herself was killed by a hit and run. This shows how lenient they could be about the law but for things that should not be lenient at all. The lenient law shows that unhappiness and fear is what they strive for in society.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) – is a nonprofit organization, incorporated on September 5, 1980. They seek to stop drunk driving, support people affected by drunk driving, focus on preventing underage drinking, and strive for stricter impaired driving policies (whether alcohol or other drugs). “The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.” MADD is supported by fund raising, donations, events such as raising money for the MADD walk, and through memberships to the organization. Some tactics that MADD uses are having people sign a pledge not to drink and drive, advertisements, social media, and a campaign to make alcohol more expensive

On January 13, a 28-year-old Odessa woman was driving the wrong way down a one-way road while under the influence of an alcohol drink, and she ended up getting hit.

“In 2013, there were a total of 30,057 fatal crashes in the United States that involved 44,574 drivers. As a result of those fatal crashes, almost 32,719 people were killed.” Almost half of distracted driving crashes are rear end crashes which then results in hitting more cars and making those cars go out of control ending in either hitting innocent people or more cars. There are many things the Federal government and the states are doing to prevent this thing from happening. Such as “many states are banning texting while driving, or using graduated driver licensing systems for teen drivers, to help raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to keep it from occurring.” Also on “September 30, the President issued an executive order prohibiting Federal Employees from texting while driving on Government business or with Government equipment.” I feel as though the government should do some more to prevent teens from using cell phones while driving. It’s not just texting but messing with music, talking on the phone, or even talking to Siri can end in some innocent person getting hurt, all because someone wasn 't paying attention to the road for a split
