My view on Drunk Driving
It is shocking to notice that tragic accidents caused by drunken driving have occurred with frequency recently. Four people were killed and one was seriously injured in Chengdu because of young driver who had just been to a birthday party and got totally intoxicated with too much alcohol.
How to make a quick and effective stop to these unimaginable calamities? Some people claim that severe punishment, even the extreme penalty, will work effectively, since people seem to learn more through the similar bitter cases having previously happened; others believe that more importance should be attached to education, and drunken driving should be an essential part of life education for the public. These suggestions do make sense and are actually in effect in many nations at present.
In my opinion, it is more important to take measures to avoid such occurrence. And the most important is the self-consciousness about potential dangers to life of drunken driving. Only when one is aware that his life is being threatened would he try to avoid for self-protection.
