The law applies to 3 convictions, not 3 crimes (i.e. criminals may get away with several incidents). The law destroys the flexibility of the courts and the judge. It is unjust in certain conditions (victimless crimes, young criminals, etc.). Criminals often plea bargain their first two convictions.
The legal drinking age in the United States is 21 years old. That means anyone younger then this is breaking the law and a lot of bad things can happen to them. One bad thing that can happen to them is getting caught with the liquor and having to deal with the police. There are four underage drinking laws that the cops follow: possession, purchase, use and lose and zero tolerance (“Underage Drinking” 1). Each one of these laws can make someone go to jail and pay a huge fine.
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. I am strongly against drinking and driving and I think that who ever is caught drinking and driving should be thrown into jail and fined a great sum of money. Drinking and driving has been a problem since alcohol has been around, it affects the body and mind greatly.
In the state of Pennsylvania non-commercial drivers 21 years of age and older are considered legally drunk when their blood alcohol content level is .08 or higher. Drivers of commercial vehicles are legally drunk when their BAC (blood alcohol concentration) is .04 percent of higher. School bus drivers and drivers under the age of 21 and considered drunk when their blood alcohol level is .02 or more. For bus drivers and drivers under the legal age .02 is a conservable limit, but for non-commercial drivers a .08 alcohol limit should be reconsidered. Their are several penalties for drunk driving.
Driving under the influence of alcohol is like taking a gun and aiming it at someone for no reason. You never know what or whom you’re going to hit. You are not only endangering your own life, but the lives of many others. Arizona laws are in place so that if you do get behind a wheel and take the chance of killing yourself or someone else that you may get pulled over and get a second chance, so to speak. If you get pulled over in Arizona while under the influence of alcohol you will be taken to jail, and you will have your license suspended for at least a year.
Furthermore the government could focus on other things that are more of a threat, such as drug trafficking, murders, and ect. With cops being able to lower their alert on drunk driving, more time will open up for things that are threatening society today. In fact according to the whitehousedrugpolicy.com approximately 32% of inmates were arrested while under the influence of drugs compared to an 18% of inmates whom were drunk. Most people would argue that people would still drive under the influence even if the age was lowered. This is definitely a possibility, but the percentage of street crimes drug related would still drop way down making the streets of your home town or others a lot safer for children and even
• Consuming alcohol prior to driving impairs driving ability and increases the risk of crashing, causing serious injury or death. Furthermore, crash statistics show that intoxicated drivers involved in fatal crashes are three times more likely to have been speeding or not wearing a seat belt than sober driver • The most common death in a drink-driving crash is the drink-driver, many victims are innocent pedestrians, occupants of other vehicles, and other road users who happened to be in the path of the drink-driver. • To identify such drivers, remove them from the road, provide effective treatment, and bring about behaviour change before permitting them to drive again.

Drunk driving has become one of the leading causes for deaths in America. Consuming alcohol in excess amounts impairs judgment, therefore when consumers binge drink it often leads to them choosing to get into a car and driving while intoxicated. This does not only put the consumer at risk but it dangers the other passengers in the car and anyone on the road at that given time. Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 48 minutes.
1. Speed Enforcement Excessive speed is a factor in one out of every three fatalities in the United States and affects all other safety programs. A speeding drunk driver is more dangerous than one who is not. A speeding vehicle that runs off the road is far more likely to have a fatal result. A rollover that involves excessive speed is the most likely to result in death.
