The drinking age should not be lowered to 18. Lowering the drinking age from 21 years old to 18 years old could lead to an increase in dangerous behavior such as drunken driving and car accidents, risk of developing alcoholism and people under the age of 21 do not fully understand the dangers of alcohol. A teenage driver and alcohol is a dangerous combination. Drinking and driving accidents are the number one cause of death among teenagers. “Traffic deaths from drunken driving have fallen steadily, with those involving teenagers 16 to 19 declining by 39.1 percent from 1982 to 1990, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)”.

“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).

Knowing who you have patrolling the streets and protecting the public is very important. Training needs to be another tool used to reduce police violence. As a military police officer we were trained on the basics, how to handle a weapon and riots but never on police brutality. Police officers should have to go through mandatory situations or issues that they would encounter in real life working for the police department. Training is a very positive and educational way to raise awareness and knowledge.
In fact, the likelihood that the driver will get into an automobile accident is just the same as someone who has a blood alcohol level of .08 percent, which is when a person is legally intoxicated. Ten states have already banned the use of hand-held phones and 35 states have banned texting while driving. Experts have always compared distracted driving while drunk driving but they are saying a better comparison is smoking, because Americans have an addiction and feel the need to be connected at all times (Matt
The "gamble" is that cities might be empty now, but they will be filled up later, an argument Stephen Roach has previously made. While some argue that this is symptomatic of a massive property bubble in China, this really shows the presence on individual property bubbles across China.” A news from Business Insider. (Mamta Badkar, 2013) Introduction “Some statistics over that ten year period are well known: China became the world's second largest economy and the world's largest goods exporter. But such statistics greatly underestimate the scale of China's economic achievement. The last 10 years in China's economy may be summed up in two overwhelming facts which place all other economic data in context.”(John Ross, 2012).
However, this also proves to be a deadly distraction while using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle. So far this year in the United States, there has been an estimated amount of over 500,000 crashes involving drivers using cell phones and texting. (Council, 2011) With the growing number of electronic devices deployed over the last decade, these new devices provide an even greater opportunity for distraction and growing the risks that are attributed to more and more crashes and fatalities. According to a study conducted at the University of Utah by Professor David Straver, drivers who talk on a
With the population boom, just about everyone has a Millennial in their family or at least knows of one. They are the ones that are responsible for the highest proportion of texting and driving incidents. How would you feel, getting an early morning wake up call, to find out your sibling, coworker or friend had died in a car accident involving others of similar age? Perhaps they may have not been the one texting, or distracted, but at least one of the three drivers involved in the crash was a responsible. Our automobile industry has gone to several lengths to help fix this problem, yet people keep dying.
