Drunk Driving is becoming a major concern in our society today. Drunk driving is

not a funny thing. It has killed many people and ruined the lives of many others.

There are many stupid reasons drunk driving occurs. I believe the main one is just

pure stupidity. Teenagers most likely will drink in their lifetime. After that happens,

they need to know that they are not capable of driving. This knowledge could

prevent many accidents. Drinking is not necessarily a bad thing, if you are a

responsible drinker. I think that if you know your going to a party and there is

going to be alcohol, then you can reserve a ride before the party takes place. It’s all

about taking responsibility for your own actions. It seems so ridiculous that people

don’t have the common sense to know they can cause mass destruction if they are

drunk behind the wheel. It’s a terrible thing to know that you can be killed because

of somebody else’s stupidity. Last year, my cousin was hit by a drunk driver while

driving with his friends to the movies. Luckily he was not seriously hurt, but his life

could have been ruined because of that person. I believe that anyone that is caught

while intoxicated should never have the right to drive again. Driving is a privilege,

and that person took advantage of it, while endangering other lives. In closing, I

hope that teenagers learn that drunk driving is a terrible thing. You can end up

hurting yourself, and other innocent people. All people should think of their

consequences before the go behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol.

I hope that one day, we won’t have this problem anymore.
