If I were in that vehicle that night, I would have told the driver to slow down. Having a little fun is not nearly as important as driving safely. The accident could have been avoided by the teenagers just using their brains. Speeding was clearly dangerous, so they shouldn't have done it. I would feel awful knowing that I was fully responsible for the death and injuries of eight other kids. I believe the punishment she received was appropriate. She did feel absolutely terrible about what happened, but she did cause a very violent crash.

If I were a passenger in the car that night, I would have definitely told the driver to slow down and be more conscious of the people in the car with her. I think that the crash could have been avoided in several ways. Someone could have spoke up, or the driver could have taken responsibility and slowed down. If I was the driver in that crash, I would be devastated, knowing that three people were dead because of my actions. The guilt would eat me alive for the rest of my life. I think that the driver's punishment was what was deserved for what happened, if only because it sends a message to other teen drivers to slow down. As for the girl herself, I think that no matter what the punishment was, she is always going to have that guilt, and she is always going to have to carry around that burden for the rest of her life. I believe that the community service thing where she has to talk about not driving too fast is a good idea.

If I was a passenger in the car that night, I would have told the driver to slow down because I know that the accident would have been avoided is the driver would slow down. If I was the driver of the vehicle, I wouldn't be able to live knowing that I was the reason that 3 of my friends/teammates died. I believe that the driver of the vehicle fit the punishment that she was given.

If I had been in the car, I would have told the driver to slow down, which is also the easiest way to make sure this crash doesn't happen. The girls could have also ordered food instead of going out, or maybe just had 1 person go and pick some food up. If I was a driver that caused a crash like that, I would never live it down. I'd think about what went wrong, and why I'd been so careless. The driver of the accident deserved what she got. She will has to serve jail time, and do community service. But worst of all she has to live with what happened for the rest of her life.

If I was a passenger in that car I have told the driver not not try to jump the hill and say that doing that is far to dangerous. This accident could have been avoided multiple ways. One way could of been if the driver made the decision to stop what she was doing before what happened another way would be if a passenger stopped the driver before she decided to try to jump her car going 100 mph. If I was the driver of this crash i would feel so guilty for what I would have done to all the people in the car with me. I believe the punishment for the crime was reasonable because of how she took the lives and injured many people even though it may have been unintentional.
