Meet Our Spring 2020 Winner
“My house is only five minutes away,” “I’m not even drunk,” and “Don’t call my mom!”
are all common phrases said before a teenager steps into their car with alcohol in their system.
Unfortunately, teenagers drive intoxicated 2.4 million times a month and are 17% more likely
to be involved in a crash (Sobering Up). Moreover, teens are more likely to binge drink in
comparison to adults which leads to higher blood alcohol content levels (Sobering Up). But is
this really their fault? I would argue, not entirely. A lack of in-depth education, societal
pressures, and underdeveloped maturity all play a factor in this pandemic that is underaged
drinking and driving. Instead of chastising teens, there are more effective solutions: a DMV
test to obtain your license, effective parent communication, a shift in mentality around the
issue, and reducing access to alcohol.
