What possesses a person to get behind the wheel and drive while drunk? This question is always asked whenever a drunk driver is involved in a drinking and driving incident. Driving is a privilege given to responsible people and not a right; it should be taken seriously because there are always going to be lives at risk when driving. Most people enjoy a drink from time to time and that’s not so much of a problem, the problem is when they get drunk and lose control. If you consider driving then the problem gets even worse.
Drunk driving affects more than just the people driving drunk, it affects innocent pedestrians or sober drivers who die while the drink drivers lives a normal life like nothing happened. A lot of people get in the car with drunk drivers, when they do that their putting their life in danger. The problem today is people are dying for either being innocent or making the

Segro, Anthony Mrs. Dwyer English 2C 1/15/07 Persuasive Essay Drinking and driving is a very serious and dangerous problem in the United States and all around the world. Many people every year are killed or injured because of drunk drivers, and most of the people that are killed are innocent bystanders. When a person’s blood alcohol content is over the legal limit he becomes much more impaired and are at a higher risk at hurting themselves or others.

This new law should be passed because drivers will be less distracted, it could save many lives, and it would be safer for everyone. Texting or calling while driving can be one of the most dangerous distractions, and the could both lead to death or injury.
They both affect ones vision of the road, and make the driver lose concentration. Both texting while driving and drinking while driving cause many accidents, injuries, and even death every day. Neither one is worse than the others. They both cause accidents, injuries and even deaths. Texting and driving has 11 deaths every day, 330,000 injuries per year, and 1,600,000 accidents per year where drinking while driving one, person dies every 48 minutes, has over 10,000 accidents and injuries per year and
“There were 33,808 people died in traffic crashes in 2009 in the United States (latest figures available), including an estimated 10,839 people who died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes.
