Drinking isn’t bad and driving isn’t bad, but when you mix those two together, you sure aren’t glad. See, the thing is, someone will always be in danger. One side would be behind bars for many years while the other person has lost their life and I definitely know that for me, losing a family member or even a friend for that matter would be such a catastrophe.
Driving isn’t a right. It is a privilege. Although it is challenging to come up with solutions for such an important issue, there are ways to decrease it. Limiting the driving during the night by a certain age will be an option. The younger you are, the earlier you would have to head home. Though, the more mature, older, and responsible you are, the longer you can stay out and drive. It’s similar to riding a bike. The helmet is our seat belt, and the handlebars are the steering wheel, and the pedal bars are the brakes and the gas. In addition, you can also keep track of how much alcohol is distributed to each person. For instance, at a club, when someone orders a drink, each person can have three bottles. That sounds like so little bit, but you won’t hurt yourself nor others. It may seem easy or difficult at times, but one little thing can change the whole mindset of the outcome.
Appreciate what you have because it may or may not last forever. Leaning towards the future, if we don’t do anything to stop it, fifty years from now, we can cause so much more damage/destruction. Looking at our generation, we’re known as the party animals. We’re not proud of it, but everyone has a flaw, it’s what makes us who we are. The more cars that are on the road, the more drivers that are drunk, the more accidents that will occur.
Every day there’s an accident, it might not be drinking related, but we’re wasting the lives of innocent people that are based on our stupid mistakes. Technology-loving, music blasting, sports fanatics. The children of tomorrow. These facts stay true, no matter what people do, we cannot completely solve the issue of drinking while driving. Wanting the best for his people, different obstacles came across the way. Though, he persevered them all and turned his beliefs into achievements. Making Hawai’i a better place, Clarence T.C Ching took the responsibility to help others have success. Proving that “A humble beginning is no barrier if one has constructive dreams and the ability and determination to make them come true.” It implies functions for driving, for both reaction times and/or motor skills. As for us, we are continuing his legacy by informing and approaching. Would life be a little different if there was more than one person helping Clarence T.C. Ching. Would there have been fewer problems? If you see a problem, stand up and let your voice be heard. After all, “A person’s a person. No matter how small.” – Dr. Suess.
