Driving can be dangerous in the U.S. There are roughly two deaths every thirty-three minutes because of a drunk driving accident. Every 90 seconds, someone is injured because of this entirely preventable crime (MADD, par. 2). Drunk driving is the United State’s number one highway safety concern (MADD, par. 2). Driving under the influence has an arrest rate of one for every 123 licensed drivers in America. (NHTS) These accidents are much too common. Drivers were intoxicated in 41 percent of all fatal pedestrian crashes according to reports done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The facts are plain and simple, that alcohol and driving do not mix. About three in every ten Americans will be involved in an alcohol related crash at some time in their lives. Every single injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. To curb this national travesty, concerned Americans need to examine the problems, the effects, and the solutions to drunk driving. First of all, America has had a problem with drunk driving since Ford perfected the assembly line. Alcoholism is a problem in and of itself, but combined with driving can have a wide range of effects. The consequences of this reckless behavior can include a first time DUI or licenses suspension; a small fender bender, or worst of all a deadly crash. Most drivers that have only one or two drinks feel fine, and assume they are in control, which is irresponsible and dangerous. Alcohol is a depressant that slows down the body's ability to react and impairs judgment. To drive well, you need to be able to have a quick reaction time to avoid accidents. Unfortunately, people continue to drink and drive. However,...
Alcohol has become a widespread social problem for us. People are constanly abusing the legal status of being allowed to consume alcoholic beverage. Even the minor and teens are getting access to alcohol through elders, friends, family etc or by trying to cicumvent policies and law designed to prevent access to them. According to the NHTSA, nearly 12,000 people in the U.S. die every year in DUI-related accidents. 900,000 are arrested each year for DUI/DWI, and a full 1/3 of those are repeat offenders. The rate of arrests for DUI/DWI almost doubles during the holidays. Allen D. Porter, an attorney and president of DrinkingandDriving.org, said, “Since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, over 130,000 men, women and children have died in America as a result of drunk driving. Laws providing a deterrent are not...
The more intoxicated the driver is the more they become unable to safely get to a destination. Every year more and more innocent individuals are dying due to drunk driving collisions. These inexcusable circumstances have impacted numerous families.
The overall process of global warming is the continuing rise of Earth’s average temperature. The primary cause of global warming is the greenhouse effect. As sunlight hits the earth, some of the heat is reflected back into space, while some is absorbed by greenhouse gases. These gases mostly come from power plants, car fumes, and even animals. Naturally occurring atmospheric gases such as carbon dioxide and methane are the two of the most causing gases. The worst one out of the two is carbon dioxide it lasts for about one-hundred years in the atmosphere. Even though methane is more powerful than carbon dioxide it only last in the atmosphere from a range of ten to fifteen years. Theses gases are leading to many temperature changes in the world.
Drinking alcohol is a huge part of socializing in our modern culture. I’ve personally experienced great moments with my loved ones in family barbeques and reunions where alcohol is involved. Having a great time as you drink with your friends and family is often celebrated in our movies, music videos, and television shows, but what is not displayed in our entertainment is the effects of drinking and driving. In 2009, almost 11,000 people died in a car accident involving drunk driving, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If under the influence of alcohol one must never drive a vehicle and in today's day and age this problem can be avoided in many different ways.
Statistics show that nearly eleven thousand deaths occur each year because of a DUI type of accident (“Drunk Driving Statistics”). Alcohol is used a depressant which reduces the activity in the nervous(“Alcohol”).The effects that drinking alcohol has on the body can either be short term, long term, or both. Alcohol disorients the brain and can cause blackouts, memory loss, and more if an excessive amount is consumed. The list of the reasons people drink is endless, and the reasons they choose to drive is because the effects of alcohol have mesmerized their natural
Among persons under 21, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 80%. Despite this progress, we still have more work to do, and our commitment to eliminate drunk driving is stronger than ever. Hardcore drunk drivers continue to wreak havoc on our nation’s road accounting for 70% of drunk driving fatalities, where there is a known alcohol-test result for the driver – a trend that has remained relatively unchanged for more than a decade. In 2016, the rate of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities per 100,000 population was 3.3, representing a 65% decrease since 1982, when record keeping began, and a 49% decrease since the inception of The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility in 1991. There are many reasons why you shouldn’t drink and drive. You could lose your license, you could lose your job, you can face hefty penalties for the crime you committed, your arrest will become public knowledge and you may be forced to live with guilt. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (or MADD) and the president, Colleen Sheehey-Church, have been trying to prevent drunk driving since 1980. Colleen Sheehey-Church joined MADD in 2005, a year after her 18-year-old son Dustin drowned after the car he was riding in, driven by a teen with alcohol and drugs in her system, crashed into a river, trapping Dustin in the vehicle. As MADD’s national spokesperson and
However, the rate for drinking and driving has dramatically dropped in the past few years. That doesn’t always mean people aren’t drinking and driving. That just means that people aren’t getting caught drinking and driving. Some may say they aren’t getting caught drinking and driving because they are good at driving drunk. Well, whether you are good at driving drunk or not you are still putting yourself and others on the road at risk. You may even be putting kids playing in their background at risk if you drive drunk. According to The ABC article a man from Te...
In 1897, “the first drunk driving accident was ever recorded, in 1910” “New York was the first state to adopt a law against drinking and driving, with California and other states soon following ”(first Drunk driving Arrest).”
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) every two minutes an individual is injured in an alcohol related crash and in 2013, approximately 28.7 million individuals have admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol (M.A.D.D.,2016). As a result of M.A.D.D.’s efforts the number of deaths from intoxicated driving has decreased by half since M.A.D.D. was founded in 1980. Part of M.A.D.D.’s mission is to bring awareness into schools and universities with true stories of those affected by a loss of a loved one from a drunk driving accident. M.A.D.D. also lobbies for stricter laws for offenders and for ignition interlock devices for those who have driven intoxicated.
