Adolescent Drinking and Driving Drinking and driving is an illegal act of negligence therefore it is not a smart thing to do Although driving while intoxicated is a problem of all age groups it is especially severe for adolescents This is not because they do not care but that they often do not understand the serious effects of alcohol It is a proven fact that driving under the influence of alcohol can affect peoples reflexes Therefore no one should drink and drive because it can cause accidents debilitating injuries andor death According to statistics adolescents are involved in one out of four injury accidents Adolescents go through a personal fable stage They are sorry when they hear of people dying or getting hurt while drinking and driving but they feel nothing could happen to them Adolescents often start the day out feeling bored and this leads to a drinking road trip This is where several teens with no particular destination in mind hop into a car and many times they end up at the local liquor store where they buy alcohol with fake IDs They drive to a secluded place outside of town and consume the alcohol as quickly as they can However this is not enough for them and they start looking for other sources of obtaining liquor Late into the evening they are ready to head home unfortunately because they are immature they did not think to get a designated driver This results in a teen that is extremely intoxicated behind the wheel and this could cause an accident that could badly injure the people involved Sometimes appendages are injured due to a fracture or a more severe injury could result in amputation Getting burned is also an injury that could occur in a car accident Burns range in severity from first degree to third degree with third degree burns causing the most damage In addition burns could cause loss of vision
