If I were in the car that night, I would have told Carly two things: one, it's just foolish to drive that fast on a road at night or at any time, and two, that she's not going to gain anything from catching air off a hill and will probably end very badly for everybody in the car. The accident could have been avoided if the driver had used good judgement/decisions making and if the passengers had done everything they could to prevent the driver from making that decision. If I were the driver who had caused the crash, I would just feel extremely guilty and plain stupid for thinking that driving that fast would be fun or a good idea. I think that the punishment was fit for what she did since she killed three girls and severely injured the rest of them.

If I was a passenger in that car, I without a doubt would have taken action to make sure the driver of the vehicle reduced to a safe speed. This horrific accident could've been avoided by every girl holding a clear understanding of dangers in driving, every girl understanding that a few minutes riding in the car calmly and safe doesn't override the lives of three teenagers, and courage for these impressionable teenagers to speak up and say this isn't safe. If I was the driver of this vehicle, I believe I would have carried a major burden for the rest of my life knowing I was in control of 9 valuable lives and in control of the actions that lead to the deaths of 3. I believe the driver received a fit punishment. Although, the driver did not hold these vicious intentions, at the end of the day, she led to the loss of three valuable lives and there needs to be a punishment for that. Despite her one year imprisonment, and 6 year probation, she will likely suffer the burden of her actions the rest of her life.

If I had been a passenger in the car that night, I would have been scared out of my mind right when the vehicle went even 10 miles over the speed limit. I would have told the driver to slow down, and consider the risk of what she was doing. Is the thrill of a stomach drop really worth the lives of your friends? If only she had slowed down, and focused more on the safety of the lives in that car, the entire crash could have been avoided. If I had been the driver in that situation, first of all I would never have gone out with 9 people at once, and secondly I would have definitely drove within the speed limit. If however, I was in that situation of me causing the crash, I would have been absolutely devastated. I wouldn't be able to live with myself knowing the damage I caused. I think the guilt alone would be punishment enough. Though she was the driver of the vehicle, Carly was encouraged by the other girls to have "fun". I think that service, probation and guilt are suitable punishments, jail seems excessive.

It is hard to know exactly what I would have done if I had been in that situation. I like to think that I would have told the driver to slow down, but it's impossible to know how I would really react in the moment. Now that I have seen this video and witnessed the devastating consequences of driving too fast, I will certainly speak up if I'm ever in a similar situation. The horrible crash described in the video could have been avoided if the driver had not been driving so fast, if the passengers had told her to slow down, if they had been educated about the dangers of driving too fast, or if they had not chosen to go out in a car at all. If I were the driver of a vehicle in a crash like that, I imagine the grief and guilt would be all consuming. I don't know how people manage to move past a horrible event like that. I think the punishment the driver received was appropriate. I feel sympathy for the pain that she must have to live with, but it doesn't change the fact that she made the choice to drive too fast.

I would have probably been scared. I hate being in cars which are going over the speed limit but I don't think I would have been able to say anything to the driver that would have convinced her. This of been easily if some people practiced some sense and realized that 100 MPH is not allowed on any road and should be avoided. I think the prison time is hard to guess. Maybe give her 6 months in jail and give her permanent probation because it obvious she can't be trusted to drive safe if let off the hook. Also that would be so much trouble to manage it would be more server than the original sentence while keeping her from spending too much time in prison.
