Reasoning

Even though drinking and driving seems like a small action, based on the evidence provided it has huge consequences. The life of a little girl lost because you hit her while you were drunk driving. Is it worth her life to be drinking and driving? Even if you did not mean to hurt her you did, and hurt many other people who knew her.
Some people still think that drunk drivers should not be arrested or have severe consequences, because their vision is blurred and are under another influence.

David Kelly

David Kelly was an Irish actor who stared an many movies and TV series. In 2002 he said, "education is important, but we're to the point where almost everyone knows they shouldn't drink and drive. The people who are still doing it are choosing to do it. The most effective way to deal with them is to arrest them." By saying this he shows how drinking and driving is educated to people all over, you see many commercials on the TV about how devastating it can be. He also says how the people who are drinking and driving know about how dangerous it is. David Kelly is right we need to take extensive measures to help keep our roads safe, and arrest and help the people who are drunk driving.
