Drinking and Driving!!

  • Throughout the years drinking and driving has increased dramatically. Many young adults don’t realize how intoxicated they really are and get behind the wheel causing many fatal accidents

  • In a study shown more than half of the U.S. fatal car crashes are a result from drinking or other substances. The only downside to the research taken was that they couldn’t prove if the driver felt under the influence or even if that is what caused the accident.

Summary of opinion
Summary of opinion

  • Alcohol can be a fun way to socialize and also healthy if consuming the right substance in the right amounts. It can also be very dangerous and addicting, following the alcohol limits and controlling yourself is there for your safety, call a cab, or designating someone to drive is a lot smarter than driving under the influence. When it comes to drugs prescribed understand what you are taking and why, maybe ask for alternative treatments especially if you have a history of abuse. Illegal use is just plain dumb, there are many consequences such as overdose and addiction which neither are worth ruining your life for some drug, know your options and ask questions if you aren’t sure.
