If I was a passenger in the car that night, I would have told the driver to slow down and think about what could happen if this dangerous action continued. If they didn't slow down, I would have told them to stop the car and I would have gotten out because if I couldn't convince her to slow down, I needed to get myself out of that situation right away. Slowing down and not being distracted could have easily prevented this accident. If I was the driver of the vehicle, I don't think I would ever be able to drive a car again. I don't think I'd be able to see the road the same way or see a soccer team the same way. I would feel terrible and so embarrassed and ashamed of myself. How could I kill three girls when it could have easily been avoided? I think the punishment given was appropriate, and gives her enough time to realize she made a horrible mistake and teach others not to make the same one she did. I think she should have her license taken away as well.

If I were a passenger in that I car I would have told the driver to slow down, and done everything I could to get them to slow down or stop the car all together. The accident could have been avoided if they would not have left the house or if they thought threw what they were doing and thought about the consequences. If I was the driver I would live with that guilt for the rest of my life and be extremely sorry for what I had done. I think it did fit the crime because you need to have consequences for your actions. Whatever the circumstances may be no matter how bad you feel you still made a mistake and should have consequences for your actions.

If I were a passenger in the car on that unfortunate night, I would like to think I'd speak up and tell the driver that the speed she is traveling at is dangerous. If the driver won't listen, I'd have asked to be let out of the vehicle. Maybe if the driver was older and more experienced, this crash could have been thought about before it happened, and avoided by slowing down and paying attention. I would feel awful for the pain that I cause and the lives I took away, first and foremost. I wouldn't understand why I was left alive when I caused so much pain to others. For ruining so many lives, I feel she should've received a harsher punishment. I agree with the judge in saying peer pressure doesn't change anything. It was her responsibility to protect all the girls in the car instead of a quick thrill. She deserved a harsher punishment.

I would have not liked to be in that car and if I was I would have told her to stop and make that very clear. If this girl would have used common sense of to not try to jump a hill and slow down especially with all those passengers nobody would have died or gotten injured. I know that if I was driving and done that I would've felt terrible. 1 to be driving that fast and 2 to have killed 3 people and injured even more. I think she deserves way more jail time. Yes it wasn't intended but she is an adult and carelessly drove and ended up killing 3 girls.

If I were a passenger in the car that night, I would have told her to slow down, and not make the jump. No destination is more important than your life. It could have been avoided if she had slowed down, paid attention to the speed limits and been patient. If I was the driver who caused this horrific accident, I don't think I'd ever forgive myself. It is a tragedy that will haunt you forever. I believe the punishment was enough. It suited the severity and she will forever punish herself for this. I hope all the victims that survived are okay and living full lives.
