Drunk Driving By: Nadea Hicks THE TEENAGE PSYCHE O_o Teen Life:
The teenage mind is a lot like their room; messy and all over the place. Often times adults think they have the hardest life and maybe back in the last decade or century that was true but, times have changed. Teens now a days have ten times more going on in their lives than before and with so much change comes much more responsibility. Teens have school work, classwork, (before and/or after school) job work, Homework and home work(chores), and that's just the beginning. Other than just work teens have to juggle a social life in with the rest of their responsibilities so it's not wonder they want to blow off some steam but, is getting wasted the answer?

Reasons we do it:
We are surrounded by bad influences especially the media; teens are easily influenced by celebrities, movies, music, news, etc. because we think it's cool and even if media doesn't get us our peers will. Peer Pressure is the main reason why teens do stupid things because we want to fit in so, if we are pushed by our friends to do something stupid we'll do it if that means we'll be accepted.

BUT THIS IS WHY THERE ARE RULES. ACTION and CONSEQUENCES What Is Drunk Driving? Drunk Driving is the crime of driving a vehicle with an excess of alcohol in the blood. SOLUTION!!!!!!!! IT'S GETTING BETTER:
The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety says..“The per capita death rate of fatally injured 16-20 year-old passenger vehicle drivers with a positive BAC declined by 54 percent between 1982 and 1995, and a smaller decline was seen between 1995 and 2008 (31 percent).”
Over time the message has been getting across and more teens by the day are making the right choice. PROBLEM: The issue with drunk driving is that when you're intoxicated your not focused and when your driving you need to be alert and aware of your surroundings otherwise you can get in an accident and cause not only yourself to get hurt and potentially die but others as well. According to MADD.org:
Each year, approximately 5,000 young people under the age of 21 die as a result of underage drinking; this includes about 1,900 deaths from motor vehicle crashes, 1,600 as a result of homicides, 300 from suicide, as well as hundreds from other injuries such as falls, burns, and drownings. IN ADDITION: In 2010, 10,228 people were killed and approximately 350,000 were injured due to drunk driving and in addition to that there was a $132 billion yearly price tag. QUESTION: IF DRUNK DRIVING IS SO DANGEROUS WHY DO TEENS DO IT THAN? RULES AND LIMITATIONS:
Rules are made to keep teens safe and make sure there's order. CHOICES: We have a choice to make the right or wrong decision everyday and in 100% of drunk driving accidents it was completely avoidable if someone made the right choice to say NO to alcohol. Some teens think if their BAC is below 0.08 they're okay but, that's not the case for under age drinkers, if anyone under the age of 21 is caught with alcohol they can be and will be arrested so, if you're underage make the right choice and say NO to alcohol. CONSEQUENCES:
If you're convicted of a DWI you can have your driver’s license suspended for a year. (Keep in mind that a DWI is a criminal conviction. It goes on your record.)
Some colleges will unaccept you if you are accused of this crime.
If you drive under the influence and hit someone and they die you can be accused of homicide.
You can seriously hurt yourself and others( You can be a few limbs short) If your stressed there are more positive ways to handle life like going for a walk, exercising, hobbies like painting, hanging with friends at the movies, beach, or pool, etc. the possibilities are endless so, don't drink there's other ways to handle it. STOP THE MADNESS: I'm not the only one who wants to stop this over time new programs have come out to raise drunk driving awareness and help keep teens and young people safe like... Organizations: SADD(Students Against Destructive Decisions)-SADD offers many services for teens and young people to help raise awareness and promote alternative ways to have fun and do positive things with their time.
MADD(Mothers Against Drunk Driving)-MADD focuses on DUI's and gets more into parental awareness.
These are just two of the many other organizations there are in drunk driving prevention. STATISTICS SADD.org says…
In 2008, an estimated 12.4% of persons ages 12 or older drove under the influence of alcohol at least once during the past year.
Also in 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.
Alcohol use remains extremely widespread among today’s teenagers.  Nearly three quarters of students (72%) have consumed alcohol (more than just a few sips) by the end of high school, and more than a third (37%) have done so by eighth grade. WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!!!!! Anything can be dangerous especially a car so, if you make one wrong turn you can really pay for that mistake. Be responsible, focus, and remember one small mistake can have a HUGE impact.
