If I was a passenger in that car that night I would have told the person to slow down. That is such a dangerous speed to go especially in that kind of area where there are obstacles like the hills they encountered. A way the accident could have been avoided would be if someone would've spoken up and said to slow down. Another would be everyone wearing their seatbelts it may not have stopped it but it could've prevented the fatalities that occurred. Finally if the driver would've just obeyed the speed limit the occurrence would have never happened. If I was the driver it would eat away at me. It is such a irresponsible thing to do and really took for granted the value of human life. I think that the punishment was reasonable, however I think it should be required she apologize personally to the families who lost their daughters. It would mean something to them but also get the point across that one thing like that can impact and hurt so many people who weren't even there.

Going over 100 mph to get air on a jump is completely stupid. I would've definitely called the driver out because going that fast on a country road is asking for trouble. This crash could've been avoided by obviously saying something and slowing down, making sure everyone was buckled up, not going out so late at night, or having less people in the vehicle. Well, I wouldn't be the driver of the crash because i can't drive yet. However, there would be a heavy guilt throughout this time i call my life. I think the driver received a fitting punishment, as they were her friends too and yes, it was a stupid mistake and the speed was intentional. But she doesn't need prison to make her feel guilty about killing 3 people.

If I personally was on that car first I would put on my seatbelt. Next I would tell the driver to slow down and if they refused I would ask to be let out immediately. If the driver slowed down or someone spoke up thus accident could of been avoided. Also not going out so late. If I was the driver of the vehicle I would feel horrific I would accept any punishment given I would probably even be scared to ever drive again. I do think the punishment fit the crime. She deserved to serve some time and teach others about driving. I do however think it was a mistake and maybe 1 year was a bit too much.

If I were in that car that very night, I would've put my seat belt on the very second the car started moving. If my friend was driving and I knew they were going well over the speed limit, I would've told her to slow down no matter what. I think this situation could have been avoided if the driver wasn't going soo fast. I also think that if they hadn't gone out that night to go and teepee the 3 girls would have been killed. I were the driver, I would've been more careful. I think the punishment was an alright thing to do.

If I was a passenger in the car that night, I would have definitely suggested that the driver slow down. Going above the speed limit is dangerous, let alone 100 mph. This horrible accident could have been avoided by the drive of the car making smarter decisions by not speeding. It could also have been avoided by the passengers in the car speaking up and telling the driver of the car to slow down. If I was the driver of the car that crashed, I would feel ashamed of my foolish actions and guilty for the rest of my life. I think the driver received a good punishment, especially that she has to talk talk to people on the dangers of speeding.
