If I were a passenger in the car that night, I would have told the driver to slow down and remind her of the lives, including her own, she was putting at risk. The accident could have been avoided in several different ways. One being the girls staying home that night instead of going out. Another being the driver being more responsible and going the appropriate speed. Lastly if the passengers told the driver to slow down, the crash may have been prevented. If I were the driver that caused the accident the feeling of guilt would remain with me for the rest of my life. I would constantly be thinking about if I had been more responsible and slowed down, then those three girls would still be here today. I believe that the punishments that the driver received were appropriate because the result of the crash, killing three of her friends, and the constant feeling of guilt should been enough for her to learn her lesson and to realize how dangerous reckless driving can be.

If I was in the car that night I would have told the driver and made sure the driver was following the speed limit and all traffic rules. The accident could have been avoided by following the speed limit and not do something stupid that you will regret. If I was the driver of the car I would have took all responsibility because I would have been the driver and the people that were in the car would have been my responsibility. I think the driver was punished the right way because it was just an accident and nothing was done on purpose. But three lives were lost so I think the punishment was deserved.

If I was a passenger with those girls that night, I would have told the driver the slow down. Everyone in that car that night knew they were traveling too fast, but no one said anything because they were having fun. One way this accident could have been avoided is if the driver slowed down. Another way this could have been avoided is if the girls didn't even go. It was midnight and the driver could have been tired causing her too not focus fully on the road. If I was the driver of that car that night, I would have been smart enough to slow down because if I kept on speeding down that road, I know I would have put all the passenger's life at risk. I believe the punishment the driver received was just enough. She did go out driving that night wanting to hurt her friends, she just wanted to have fun, but at the end of the night, that obviously did not happen.

If I was a passenger of the vehicle that was later crashed that night, I would have strongly suggested slowing down until it actually happened. Being a victim of a car accident recently has showed me how important it is to stay as safe as you can be on the roads, so I would have for sure been anxious and taken (verbal) action until a solution or at least a compromise was put into place. I feel that they could've avoided tp-ing the house in order for the accident to not have happened, or if the driver slowed down for the sake of 9 whole peoples safety. No matter how much fun you're having, risking the life of yourself and others around you is NOT worth it. If I was the driver, I would feel absolutely terrible and I would never forgive myself, and I would understand and take the punishment and be okay with it. I believe the punishment given was too little, she should have received at least a couple more years for how many people she injured/killed.

If I was a passenger in that vehicle when it was going too fast, I would have asked the driver to slow down. The accident could have been avoided if she would have not been distracted, not have been speeding, etc. I would never forgive myself. It would be awful to have to live with the guilt of killing my friends. I believe the judge was a bit lenient but on the other hand she has to live with this for the rest of her life.
