I am a backseat driver often times, because I pay attention to the speed limit so if my family members are speeding I will mention to them that they are speeding. In this situation I would also tell the driver that they were going way too fast. These teens could've avoided this crash by slowing down, having their seat belts on, and having the correct number of girls in that car. Most times the most a normal size car can hold is between 5-8, so they had many extra girls in that car. If I was the driver of the car, and I was the reason that 3 girls are dead, my life would be a wreck, I couldn't live with myself knowing that. Everyday would be an awful nightmare. I think that the punishment was good except for the jail time. I think that she should've had two or three years in prison to combat what she did.

I would have told the driver to slow down cause there are different and safer ways to have fun that don't include a car. This accident could have been avoided by them staying home. Maybe if someone else was driving. If they weren't speeding. If they focused on getting home first before they had fun. I would feel miserable and feel that i deserved a severe punishment. The punishment fit the crime because she was the one driving she was the one in control but she had been influenced by others that it would be fine it would be fun. I would say that she deserved that punishment because she was the one in control but had been with friends who just wanted to have fun.

If I was a passenger in the car I would have told the driver to slow down. This accident could have been avoided if the passengers spoke up and told the driver to slow down, the driver could have realized driving that fast was idiotic and slowed down, their parents could have set a curfew so they wouldn't have been out in the first place or they could have gotten pulled over for speeding before the crash. If I was the driver of the vehicle that caused this crash I would probably hate myself, never drive again, and ruminate about my bad decisions for the rest of my life. I think the driver received a fair punishment considering her age, and the fact that she'll have to live with herself for the rest of her life.

If I was in the car that was part of this crash I would've told the driver to slow down because obviously everyone at some point had a thought about the speed, whether it was when they passed the last speed limit sign or as they approached the mini hills. But there is a few ways this could have been prevented, one is just to slow down because they just wanted to get the feeling of their stomachs dropping and one of the survivors said that her stomach drops when she drove down that rode in the past going slow. So speed was not needed for the feeling they were looking for. If I was the driver of the vehicle and I walked away from that crash I would be horrified to drive, have plenty of nightmares, and be so sad even if one of the people in the car was someone I just met. I think the punishment for the driver was reasonable for what caused the car to go off the road and crash leading to the 3 girls being killed.

It's easy to say that I would have told the driver to slow down, but I'm not sure that I would have actually done it. It's easy to forget about common sense when you're with friends. The accident could have been prevented if the driver was keeping her speed near the speed limit, if someone had told her to slow down, or even if she had taken a safer road. If I was the driver, and I knew that I was at fault for killing 3 people, I would be so filled with regret that I probably wouldn't be able to function. As for the punishment of the driver, I think that her punishment was too much. She should still have to be on probation and perform community service, but she should not have had to go to jail. I think that she learned her lesson enough when she found out that she killed 3 people. As cliche as it sounds, regret can be one of the worst punishments.
