If I was a passenger in the car that night, I would have most definitely told the driver to slow down. There are so many ways this car wreck could have been avoided, some of those include: one of the passengers speaking up and telling the driver to slow down. Also, the driver should have been going the appropriate speed limit. Lastly, the passengers in the car could have been less distracting. If I had caused a crash so horrific, I would never forgive myself, and I wouldn't expect others to forgive me either. I thought the punishment for the incident well. She had one year in jail to think about what she has done, but more time to help inform kids about driving safely.

If I was a passenger in the car on that night I would've told the driver to slow down and maybe even tell the other passengers to be quieter so that the driver could focus on driving. This crash could've been avoided by simply slowing down and by paying attention to the road and not what the other people in the car were doing. If I was the driver of that crash I would never forgive myself and I'd probably hate myself for the rest of my life knowing that I killed three innocent people. I strongly believe that the driver deserved more jail time because she did kill three people and she wasn't following the posted speed limit that was given. Also it's very unlikely for a vehicle to have nine seats in a car most only have seven but on occasion some will have eight.

If I were a passenger in that car I would have told the drive to slow down, and that going that fast was not worth the risk. The crash could have been avoided if the driver would have slowed down. In addition, one of the girls mentioned that she did not have her seat belt on, and that could have easily been avoided. If I was the driver I would regret that decision everyday of my life, and I don't know if I would be able to live with myself. I think that the punishment was fair. She deserved jail time, but she also is being punished in that she is always going to regret the stupid choice she made that night to speed.

if I were a passenger in the car that night, I would have suggested taking another car to have more safety precautions or just told Carly to slow down, I could drive if she wanted. Ways this accident could have been avoided is turning the music down, keeping your eyes on the road, having less people in the car, and of course, NOT SPEEDING. I do not think I would be able to recover if I was the driver from the crash. I would feel as if I deserved jail time for killing so many innocent people. I think that this punishment is good enough, saying she has 600 hours of community service to do and had to spend a year of her young adult life in prison. This will dwell on her for the rest of her life.

If I were in that vehicle before this horrific accident, I would of spoken up and told the driver of the car to think of what they were doing before continuing. I would of told the driver what might happen to everyone in this car right now, it snot worth it. This accident could've been avoided in so many ways. One way was that if the driver wasn't speeding as badly as she was this accident would not of taken place. Also with many girls being in the car there were sure to have been some distractions causing the driver to lose focus of her speed and for the passengers as well not to say anything. If I were the person driving this car that had this crash I would feel devastated and think to myself how stupid was I that night (what was I thinking). In my eyes I feel like everyday I would wake up with that horrible, horrible guilt on my shoulders. I think the punishment was to little and the women should have been charged with more years in prison with the fact that she killed 3 young ladies.
