  1. 1.     Blok    1       Andrew  Blok   Mrs.  Dehn   Applied  Tech   19  October  2011   Impaired  Driving     Everyone  goes  looking  for  a  good  time,  but  sometimes  they  become  impaired  to  do   anything.  At  3:00  A.M.  Kimberly  was  diving  home  on  the  right-­‐hand  lane.  She  had  about  six   beers.  She  was  going  the  speed  limit.  She  didn’t  see  anyone,  but  suddenly  she  heard  the   windshield  shatter.  So  she  doubled  back  to  see  what  had  happened.  She  saw  a  bicycle  and  a   guy  lying  in  the  road  with  doughnuts  scattered  round  him.  She  tried  talking  to  him,  but   then  she  really  started  to  freak  out.  She  only  had  a  few  minor  cuts.  She  was  legally  drunk   with  a  BAC  (blood  alcohol  content))  of  .108.    Since  she  became  a  felon,  she  lost  her  college   scholarship.  She  also  had  her  driver’s  license  suspended  for  four  years.  Since  she  has  been   sober,  life  is  a  hundred  times  better  than  it  was  when  she  was  drinking.  “Because  when   you’re  drinking,  you’re  not  (really  experiencing)  life”  (Arenofsky  22).  The  police  need  to  be   pushed  to  watch  the  bar  more  and  should  patrol  more.  The  bar  should  watch  their  customs,   and  if  they  are  drunk  the  should  forbid  then  from  driving.   There  are  thousand  of  car  accidents  a  year.  The  best  chance  of  a  drunk  driving   accident  is  on  the  holidays  (Drunk  Driving  Facts).  The  most  alcohol  accidents  accrue  on   New  Year’s  Day,  where  69  percent  of  the  accidents  are  alcohol  related.  On  Super  Bowl   Sunday  64  percent  of  accidents  are  alcohol  related,  48  percent  on  Christmas,  and  40   percent  on  Thanksgiving,  (Blood  Alcohol  Levels).  A  lot  of  those  accidents  are  because  of  bloka14 Wednesday, October 19, 2011 2:18:24 PM ET
  2. 2.     Blok    2     drunk  driving.  40  percent  of  fate  automobile  accidents  are  alcohol  related.  Approximately   30  percent  of  American  will  be  in  an  accident  involving  alcohol.  About  every  2  min  a  person   is  injured  in  an  alcohol  accident,  and  every  half  an  hour  a  person  is  killed.  Around  16,000   people  are  killed  a  year  from  alcohol  accidents.  About  five  times  more  likely  is  an  alcohol   accident  to  accrue  at  night  (Drunk  Driving  Facts).  Most  people  think  that  if  they  only  had  a   few  then  they  will  be  okay  to  get  behind  the  wheel.  The  fact  is,  however,  that  a  few  usually   turn  into  a  few  more  and  then  a  few  more.  (Drunken  Driving  Facts)  Studies  have  recently   proven  that  it  is  a  drunk  driving  fact  that  your  risk  of  accident  increases  with  every  drink   you  take  at  the  point  when  you  have  reached  a  6  pack,  your  chances  of  being  in  a  drunk   driving  accident  are  up  to  44  percent.       Every  person  is  at  a  risk  of  being  in  a  drunk  driving  accident.  All  people  are  affected   by  drunk  driving,  but  the  ages  of  21-­‐34  are  the  most  alcohol-­‐related  fatal  crashes  than  any  bloka14 Wednesday, October 19, 2011 2:18:24 PM ET
  3. 3.     Blok    3     other  age  group  (DUI).  Another  blood  test  tells  that  this  age  group  also  has  the  highest   average  blood  alcohol.  This  age  group  is  most  likely  not  to  change  their  drinking  and   driving  habits  (DUI)  .  The  most  of  the  effects  of  drunk  driving  accidents  end  up  in  death  or   terrible  injuries.       Why  do  things  like  drunk  driving  happen?  Almost  most  of  the  time  accident   involving  drunk  drivers  are  just  accidents.  The  people  that  cause  that  are  just  looking  for  a   good  time,  but  that  good  time  can  impair  their  senses  and  their  thinking.  Because  they  are   impaired  they  do  not  think  about  the  consequence  of  driving  or  they  say  they  are  not  drunk   at  all.  Most  people  think  if  they  have  only  a  few  then  they  will  be  okay  to  get  behind  the   wheel.   People  have  tried  petitioning  the  accident  and  how  to  stop  it.  Drunk  driving  facts   stated,  “Today,  with  cell  phone  in  almost  every  driver’s  pocket,  reports  of  drunk  driver   have  gone  up.  All  a  person  needs  to  do  is  Dial  the  local  highway  patrol  or  police   department.  Then  get  the  license  plate  number  of  the  car  and  report  the  number  and  the   location  of  where  the  driver  was  spotted.”     The  project  that  I  am  going  to  do  is  a  website.  The  website  is  being  made  on   Webly.com.  Website  will  have  several  different  pages.  The  pages  will  have  stories,  pictures,   and  other  important  information.  The  background  of  the  webpage  is  black.  It  is  black  to   symbolize  the  night,  for  that  is  where  most  of  these  accidents  happen.  Also  it  looks  like  the   black  top  of  a  road.  The  site  will  be  easy  to  use.  The  site  will  web  address  at  the  end  of  all  of   the  picture  and  written  information,  so  that  the  reader  can  go  to  the  webpage.  The  website   will  have  all  of  the  information  that  fit  in  with  the  sites  and  all  of  the  important  information   I  find.    bloka14 Wednesday, October 19, 2011 2:18:24 PM ET
  4. 4.     Blok    4     The  website  will  take  about  24  hours  of  time  all  added  together.  The  main  page  will   be  a  story.  Then  there  will  be  links  on  the  top  of  the  page  that  bring  you  to  other  parts  of   the  sites.  The  other  part  will  take  about  the  other  information  that  is  and  isn’t  in  this  essay.   The  web  page  will  be  real  easy  use  because  the  title  matches  exactly  what  is  on  the  page,   not  like  other  web  pages.  The  pages  will  be  worded  so  it  is  easy  to  read.     The  project  turned  out  ok.  It  was  not  the  best  in  the  world;  it  has  the  requirements   that  I  need  to  complete  this  project.  The  project  went  the  way  I  had  planned  there  were   some  spots  here  and  there  that  just  winged  it.  Like  I  did  to  plan  to  put  my  paper  (the  one   you  are  reading)  into  it.  Overall  the  project  was  not  easy  and  it  wasn’t  hard  it  was  in  the   middle.  No  one  helped  me  on  my  project  or  was  in  but  the  teacher.  I  learned  some  new   interesting  facts  on  drunk  driving  that  I  didn’t  knew  before  wrote  this  project.   The  peer  review  was  helpful.  The  peer  review  gave  me  some  new  ideas  for  my   website.  Some  of  them  I  did  not  even  think  of  and  other  were  one  that  though  wouldn’t   work.  They  told  me  what  didn’t  work  into  me  website  too.  The  peer  review  helped  me   make  the  whole  project  better,  and  the  word  or  other  thing  in  the  paper  more  clear.  If  I  had   to  do  this  project  over  again  I  would  add  videos  of  other  people  in  the  class  in  to  it  and   make  a  PowerPoint.  The  best  part  of  the  project  I  think  is  the  video  section,  because  I  make   one  of  them  by  my  self.  bloka14 Wednesday, October 19, 2011 2:18:24 PM ET
