“Drunk Driving Crashes Reduced Since Drinking Age Was Raised to 21: Study – Partnership to End Addiction.” Partnership to End Addiction, https://drugfree.org/drug-and-alcohol-news/drunk-driving-crashes-reduced-since-drinking-age-was-raised-to-21-study/. Accessed 5 Dec. 2021.

BACKGROUND:

The article states how teenage drinking decreased with the drinking age being raised and also showed how drunk driving accidents amongst teens and young adults decreased as a result of this. The main point was to show how the drinking age is beneficial to the health of young adults and those on the road with them.

HOW I USED IT:

I used the statements made to show how while it protects children in the moment, it does not protect them when they are finally allowed to drink while also having the ability to legally operate a vehicle.

BACKGROUND:

This article is short and discusses the main points of an experiment conducted with crashes and drunk driving. The article talks about how drunk driving decreased with the legal drinking age in relation to bars and taverns.

HOW I USED IT:

I used this article to show how that just because drunk driving decreased from young people coming from bars and taverns that does not mean that underage drinkers cannot find ways to acquire alcohol illegally which they then may drink too much of and decide to get behind the wheel.

BACKGROUND:

The background of the portion of this article that I used is that the legal drinking age does not do anything to stop underage drinking, it stops the purchase of alcohol while underage.

HOW I USED IT:

I used this article to show how teens still find ways to drink which results in binge drinking, drinking large amounts quickly in order to keep it secret, and having to drive home after a night of drinking to avoid parental suspicion. The drinking age does not ‘protect’ teens from alcohol because they will find a way.

BACKGROUND:

This article shows the pros and cons of lowering the drinking age from 21.

HOW I USED IT:

I used this article to support my claim that the minimum drinking age encourages addiction and dangerous ways of consuming alcohol. I also used it to support the point that teens would find safer means of returning home after drinking if they were able to do it legally.

BACKGROUND:

HOW I USED IT:

Accessed 5 Dec. 2021.

BACKGROUND:

This article shows that the restrictions put into place regarding drinking are commonly ignored.

HOW I USED IT:

    It’s incomprehensible that you have collected these sources but don’t refer to them in your arguments, Ziggy. They must have contained valuable information that readers would have found persuasive if you had cited them.
