If I had been in the car, I would have been nervous going at such a high speed. When the car went over the hills I would have probably said that we slowed down. Some ways that the accident could have been prevented are that the driver could have gone at a much slower speed. Going at a slower speed would have probably prevented the accident completely. Another way the accident could have been prevented is if the passengers had told the driver to slow down. Asking the driver to slow down may have made the driver drive slower which could have prevented the accident. The girls probably shouldn't have been driving out that late anyway. If they had asked one of the parents the drive them, or had just not gone out then the accident would have been prevented. If I were the driver that cause the crash I would feel so guilty! I would always be thinking about how I basically killed three of my friends. I believe that her punishment was a little too serve. Though she did crash the car, she didn't mean to kill anyone.

If I was in the car that night, I would have told the driver to slow down. This accident could have been avoided if the driver would have realized her speed was dangerous and had decreased her speed. The passengers could have spoken up to tell her to slow down. They also could have realized it is not safe to attempt jumps while driving. There also could have been less passengers in the vehicle. If i were the driver, I would not go a day without feeling terrible. I would have feelings of guilt and sadness. I would want to speak up to make a change though. I believe her punishment was too harsh for the crime. A more fit punishment would be less jail time and more probation time, and the same amount of community service.

If I was a passenger in the car I would have told the driver to slow down. It could have been avoided by slowing down and not trying to jump the hill. They could have had less people in the car because with having 9 people in the car it can cause distractions. If I was the driver of the car I would feel horrible and so guilty. I think that the punishment was too little she should serve more years in prison because she caused three people to lose their lives.

If I would have told the driver to slow down, it's not worth the damage that could be caused for going that fast. Most vans only have seven seats in the car including the drivers seat their really shouldn't have been nine girls in the car. They should have split up between two cars or some should have stayed at the house. Not all of them needed to go with they could have brought food back for everyone. Simply not going so fast could have stopped the crash entirely, most of the reasons for crashing was the speed. If the driver just slowed down even 10 below what she was going the crash wouldn't have happened. I would feel like the worst person in the world. Killing three of my teammates and injuring the rest. I would do anything to make it right but there really isn't anything that could be done. I don't think that the punishment was enough for this she killed three people who had their whole lives ahead of them. I believe that she should have had at least five years in prison.

If I were in the car that night I would have told the driver to slow down after the first bump because it would have made me nervous. Some ways this could have been prevented is can be knowing not to be out so late. The driver was probably distracted by her friends so it couldn't have helped to be dark outside and she couldn't see. Another way is abiding by the speed limit because it is there for a reason. If I were the driver that night I would probably have a tremendous amount of guilt for the rest of my life. Knowing that I could have prevented it by just slowing down. I think the punishment was fair. The worse punishment of all is having to live with that guilt but the added punishment can help her understand that what she did was wrong. And maybe in the future she can stop people from making the same mistake.
