  • 1. By Tonya Nevers
  • 2. Drunk Driving
  • 3.  Drunk driving is an issue for teen drivers because when drunk, their reaction times are lowered and there is a higher chance of them getting into accidents. Teenagers do not know the dangers of drinking and driving, as most of them think they are invincible, and a can of alcohol won’t harm them one bit. But it does.
  • 4.  Did you know that the crash rate for 16 to 19 years olds are 2.7 times higher than drivers of all ages?  The amount of crashes from drinking 16 to 19 year old drivers are almost 2 times higher times higher than drivers of all ages.  5.1% of fatal injuries come are caused from alcohol and drug use.
  • 5.  MADD  An organization that is trying to solve this problem is Mothers Against Drunk Driving. MADD works on preventing underage drinking and driving with research, support victims of drunk driving, and prevent it.  SADD  Another group, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) holds many meeting and presentations that help students learn to resist peer pressure. They also have a bright red band that they give out to teenagers bearing the word empowerment and power to remind them to do the right thing.

  • 7.  One idea I have for solving this problem is a car that can somehow detect alcohol on your breath, or a car that can recognize a drunk drivers haphazard movements, and automatically use its computers to call for help. It’s quite possible with today’s technology.
  • 8.  I know that I can spread the word of not drinking and driving. I also know that I can, when going to parties, be the designated driver for my friends that have drunk any alcohol.
