Car veers out of control, 7 vehicles in carpark damaged
This article is about a seven-seater Toyata car leaving a trail of destruction in a carpark in McNair Road after its driver lost control and sparked a series of collisions that damaged eight cars, including itself. Ms Vila said she was hanging out with a group of friends in the neighbourhood through the night. The accident occurred as they were about to drive out of the estate. The group had been drinking alcohol before the accident. 

Response: I think Ms Vila and her group of friends should have been more responsible. If they were drinking alcohol before leaving, they should abide by the law of not drunk driving and not operate the car under drunk circumstances. This act has caused many serious consequences too, such as the car colliding with 7 other vehicles, causing lots of damage to each vehicle. The group should have also been more thoughtful and think through their actions clearly before attempting to proceed with them. If you were the owner of the damaged car, wouldn't you be angry or shocked to see that your car is wrecked by another person? Furthermore, what if your car was a new one, and you have to spend more money to fix it or redesign it again? This goes to show how not thinking before we act, can lead to many serious consequences.
