Nowadays, the phenomenon of drunken driving has arouse wide concern among the public. Especially the young generation living in metropolis, tend to drive after drinking, ignoring the fact that this behavior may pose underlying threat to their precious life and may even endanger others.
Generally speaking, there are several reasons accounting for this phenomenon. Firstly, the absence of consciousness of driving security may be one of the leading causes. people participate in more activities or banquets than ever before, where they will drink strong wine. Then, they may get drunk but continue to drive. Secondly, relevant laws and regulations may not have been strictly enforced to warn people not to drive after drinking. Drunken driving is bound to generate severe consequence if we keep turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to it. Firs and foremost, this behavior will directly threaten the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians, resulting in traffic accidents, injuries and even deaths. Besides, treating the injured and repairing broken cars means a grievous waste of money, time and resources.
In view of the seriousness of this problem, effective measures must be taken before things get worse. First, it is essential that the supervisory role of laws and regulations should be strengthened to impose heavy penalty on those who drive after drinking. Secondly, a more extensive education campaign should be launched to arouse the public’s consciousness of the importance of driving safety. With these measure adopted, I strongly believe that drunken driving will be things of the past.
