If I had been a passenger in the car the night the accident occurred I would have told the driver to slow down, and to please follow the speed limit. If the driver had been going the correct speed limit the crash could have been avoided. When teens are in groups they tend to feel like they're invincible and that an accident could never happen to them. It surprises me that there were 8 other people in the vehicle and not a single one told the driver to slow down. If I had been the driver of the vehicle I would feel incredibly stupid, not to mention very quickly. I think the driver received a fair punishment I don’t think she should be able to driver for a very, very, long time. But one year served in prison is enough time served, she still has to live with her choices that alone is punishment enough.

If I were a passenger in the car that night I would like to think that i would ask them to slow down, But I can imagine the peer pressure of asking to do so and ruin the "fun". It could have been avoided by not speeding, Or not even going out to get food in the first place. If I were the driver I would be devastated, Its hard enough knowing that your driving caused people to die and on top of that having the chance of getting jail time. I think the year in jail is a bit much, She obviously didn't mean to crash it and didn't mean any harm to anyone in that vehicle. It was a complete accident and the death on her hands is enough penalty in the first place.

If I was in the car that night, I would have told her to slow down. Driving 100 mph is a huge risk, and is not one I am willing to take. The accident could have been avoided by slowing down on the hills, not causing the car to become airborne. If I was the driver I would feel terrible; the life of those three girls would be on my hands. The driver received 1 year in jail, a $70,000 dollar fine, 6 years of probation, and 600 hrs of community service. I think that the punishment was fitting, because the community service hours will help prevent others from committing the same mistake.

If I were a passenger in the car that night, I would have told Carly (the driver) to be less reckless. I also would have worn my seatbelt unlike some of the girls. The horrible accident or crash could have been avoided by driving safely or not going out to toilet-paper someone's house. If I were Carly, I would feel beyond terrible, ashamed, and regretful because knowing that I killed three people would change my life. I think that the driver received a fair punishment because even though it was a mistake, she has to make up for it in jail. I think that it is a great thing that Carly has to do 100 hours of community service every year because it will spread the message of driving attentively.

the death and injury in the news report is truly heart breaking it shows how dangerous inattentive driving can be. As a passenger, i would have urged the driver to slow down, even at the cost of having less fun. By slowing down and by taking driving more seriously,this crash could have been avoided. If i personally was involved in the crash i would have despised the driver for putting me through the unnecessary trauma of the car crash. I firmly believe the punishment the driver is fair, she may now be an example to others.
