Drunken driving cases have been increasing and have caused numerous deaths. Some people suggest drunken driving should be made into a felony while others think that tough penalties may not have much effect on road safety. My view is just as follow.
As we all know, it is very dangerous to drive while one is drunk. Therefore, drivers shouldn’t drive after drinking in order to protect others’ life as well as their own. So far, the present Road traffic Safety Law seems to show too much mercy to drunken drivers even though they have caused much trouble to the society. A more severe punishment should be given to those who drive after they have drunk, especially to those who are drunk and have caused serious injuries or deaths while driving.
In order to crack down drunken driving, the government should introduce a more severe law. Besides, more measures should be taken to cultivate the drivers’ awareness of traffic laws and respect others’ lives as well as their own when they are driving on the road, which I think should be the key to decrease drunken driving cases.
