Ashley Loo (16) 13/5


The issue being discussed here is a horrific accident that happened because of a drunk driver, killing four people, a Singaporean, his South Korean girlfriend and her parents. Not only the driver was drunkdriving, he was driving under the influence of nitrezapam - a sedative known to cause drowsiness and fatigue. The driver was not a stranger to such abuse as he was previously convicted thrice and sentenced to a total of more than five years for either possession or consuming a controlled drug. That did not stop him from abusing prescription medicine and speeding. Because of all of these, he caused a horrific accident. 

The writer didn't make any point of view so here's mine. I think that the driver is totally at fault in this horrific accident. The four victims weren't even driving on the road when the accident happened, they were stationary at the parking lot because they had a flat tyre at that time. If the driver did not drunk drive and eat drugs that will cause drowsiness, all of these could have been prevented. The driver should not ever drive when he knows that he was drunk and he ate drugs. The driver should have been sentenced to more severe charges since he had been convicted so many times. It is saddening that the driver who was utterly at fault wasn't the one who lost their precious life but the four innocent victims who did nothing to him and did not even know him beforehand. Now that he had caused four innocent people's death, he should realize his mistake and not drunk drive and eat drugs while driving again to prevent any more deaths to happen. He should learn to treasure his dear life and stop risking others' and his loves on the road. Lastly, condolences to Mr Amron's family and his girlfriend's families.
