The difference is interinging because not finishing high school is potentially leading to several other important indicators attached to criminal offenders (DeMichelle.3). Multiple SWI offenders are also more likely to lie (DeMichele, 3). This is why you should not believe what any person says about not going to drink and drive again; this is just an attempt to get cops to set them free so they can go home. People who drive while intoxicated are a small group of persistent chronic or career criminals; drunk driving has been rooted in complex processes of social learning as psychological factors that lead up to antisocial attitudes, desires, motives, and rationalizations acceptable for law violations. In general, multiple people who drive while intoxicated those who gave gad four or more prior DUI convictions are more likely to have demonstrated patterns of difficulty following rules, and once they are punished for misconduct, they are more likely to continue with their law-violating behaviors (DeMichele, 3).
Kimberley Fudge Revision of my Dui Paper Professor Davenport English 215 June 4, 2013 Could you live with being responsible for a death? Drunk driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle (car, bus, truck, moped etc) after consuming alcohol. In 2003 42, 643 fatalities were caused by vehicle crashes, out of those 17,013 (40%) were alcohol related. A crash is considered alcohol related if any driver, pedestrian or passenger involved has any trace of alcohol or there is a suspicion of alcohol usage. Unfortunately intoxicated victims of crashes sustain worse injuries and are more likely to be seriously injured than the sober victims according to a study by the University of Michigan.
Impaired driving can mean many things, such as driving under the influence or driving while you are over tired. Driving under the influence means that you have mean drinking over the alcohol limit or you have been using drugs. Being under the influence can be very dangerous, but it will lead to serious consequences for your driving future. The first time that you are caught with alcohol in your system while driving you will have a 3 day licence suspension, and a 150$ fine. By the third offense of impaired driving you while get a 30 day suspension, must attend a mandatory alcohol treatment program, 150$ fine and for six months ignition interlock.
Brittney Caine English 101-024 Professor Benjamin Draft 1 Argumentative Essay: Should Drunk Drivers Be Imprisoned On First Offense? People lose their lives every second of everyday. One of the leading causes of deaths is motor vehicle accidents, and one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents is drunk driving. Drunk driving is a problem that can be fixed. In my opinion, the one way to fix this problem is by imprisoning the offenders on their first offense.
Many of us have witnessed drivers dialing and talking on cell phones, resembling drunk drivers swerving all over the roads. Strong regulations are needed because drivers using phones are seriously impaired and because laws on negligent and reckless driving are not sufficient to punish these driving talkers. Laws on traffic safety vary from state to state, and drivers distracted by cell phones can get off with light punishment even when they cause fatal accidents. Running red lights, failing to stop for a school bus and drunk driving are just a few examples. An increasing number of studies show that driving while talking on a cellphone can be dangerously distracting.
Drinking and driving is very dangerous and many people have their lives shattered and ruined because of drunk drivers. That is why it is becoming socially unacceptable. People are finally starting to realize how dangerous this can really be. With the help of new laws, and continued hard work, the number of drinking and driving accidents should be very little in the future. Anyone that is caught while intoxicated should never have the right to drive again.
The medical irresponsibility of allowing teenagers to drink alcohol on a legal basis is also obvious to those who have basic knowledge. Consuming alcohol on a regular basis can negatively affect the development of an individual’s brain’s frontal lobes, which are responsible for emotional regulations, as well as planning and organizing. Underage individuals who consume alcohol put themselves at more risks of addiction, decreased ability of decision-making, tend to behave less responsibly, and may become violent, depressed, and even prone to suicide. The so called “trickle-down effect”, well known to sociologists, is another reason against lowering drinking age which should be taken into consideration. This effect implies to individuals who already have a right to purchase alcohol and consume alcohol, while also tend to buy it for their younger
Tonya Parnell John Ellen English 101-701 2/3/12 Getting Caught Driving Without a License Everyday people drive without a license, and if caught, the person driving will very likely lead to acquiring fines, tow fees, and being arrested; conversely, it can change a person’s likely future in many ways. Contrary to popular belief, driving is considered a privilege, not a right. Acquiring a ticket for driving without a license is only the beginning. When a person is caught driving without a license it affects their ability to stay employed, in school, or go about life in general. Getting caught driving without a license is embarrassing and disappointing; however, if the driver shows good attitude and be honest, things tend not to go so bad.
Many perpetrators of driving under the influence were given what can be considered as a slap on the wrist, leaving them with the opportunity to causing a more serious incident. This problem was considered a social problem because it potentially affected everyone and most of society was unaware of the seriousness of the problem (Patricia & Goldbas, 2013). Even before MADD's creation and going back as far as the early 1900s, drinking and driving and alcohol-related incidents had been a problem within the United States. With the publicity that MADD created on this issue the history of drinking and driving and the "problem drinker" was brought to the attention of Americans so action could be taken (Patricia & Goldbas, 2013). There was a wide range of important policies that were changed and created as a result of MADD's influence.
“More than 1,700 college students in the U.S. are killed each year—about 4.65 a day—as a result of alcohol-related injuries” (The Marin Institute). With a number as high as this, lowering the drinking age would only increase this ongoing problem of underage drinking. It has even been proven by the Marin Institute to be the leading cause of death among teenagers. Many adults feel as if the 18 to 21 age groups cannot handle drinking responsibly, then they should not be permitted to use it. Alcohol is a very serious depressant and one of the leading problems for death (Hanson, 2007).
