The Need for the Increase of Penalties of Drunk Driving
Now a day, driving while intoxicated has become Tonga’s deadliest crime. There were more than 100 alcohol-impaired deaths in the last few weeks, and that is why I decided to write about this topic. Drunk driving is the core cause of a huge number of car accidents. Drunk driving putting so many lives in danger as well as their own, it is important to higher taxes in alcohol and through teaching the word of wisdom, we can prevent drunk driving.
To begin with, Drunk drivers are putting so many lives in danger as well as their own by driving. It’s as though they do not have a brain! They’re thoughts and actions are very delayed, and they need to be taught a lesson that this is not acceptable. So many innocent people are killed every day because of this and it is not fair in any way at all.
Moreover, higher prices for alcohol can significantly reduce the amount that people drink. There are also economic and social costs associated with raising alcohol taxes. Nevertheless, this is a good example of how changes in general drinking practices can influence drunk driving. For the past three decades, the price of alcohol has been falling with respect to the price of other goods. A substantial part of this decline is due to federal and state taxes on alcohol not having kept up with inflation. Thus, the government may be able to reduce drunk driving by raising its taxes on alcohol.
Furthermore, teaching the word of wisdom is the greatest way to stop people from drinking and from that they did not cause an accident by drunk driving. People already know that drunk driving is dangerous and agree that the police and courts should move effectively to deal with it. This approach, which has been taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is the only way to stop anyone from an accident by first teaching them what we believe that for our spiritual and physical benefit, the Lord asks us to abstain from Alcohol.
Tobacco. Coffee and tea. Illegal drugs. Other harmful or addictive substances. I believe if we clarify them the word of wisdom there will be no difficulties from drunk driving in these days. I know when we keep the Word of Wisdom, the Lord promised in the book of Doctrine and Covenants He will bless us.
In addition, Motor vehicle crashes became a public safety problem in the United States at the beginning of the 20thcentury. Alcohol has been associated with traffic crashes for more than 100 years, as indicated by the publication of the first scientific report on the effect of drinking by operators of “motorized wagons” in 1904. In 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 17,036 (41.5%) of the 41,059 traffic fatalities were alcohol-related. NHTSA has also estimated that an additional 512,000 people are injured in alcohol-related crashes each year and that alcohol-related crashes cost the U.S. society $51 billion annually. That societal cost estimate accounts for the underreporting of alcohol by police and includes reported and unreported injury crashes.
Most people nowadays will tell you that you should not concern about the subjects, drunk driving is the core causes of a huge number of a car accident. Sadly, sometimes these people are your relatives and friends. I believe we are solely responsible for our choices, and we must accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. Failing to accept the truth life presents to you, you will forever fall into the traps you can never seem to escape.
To deal effectively with drunk driving, society must approach the problem from many different directions simultaneously. Teaching the word of wisdom to everyone in this world will be the best technique to stop anyone causes accident from drunk driving. I believe when we “Don’t take things to our body that might be addicting. Addictions rob us of a bit of our freedom. And some addictions like alcohol and drugs- can even impair our senses to where we cannot exercise good judgment. When you think about it, no good comes from people drinking alcohol.
