Drunk Driving Narrative Essay

Improved Essays
My Personal Narrative

Driving away from gangsters is not an easy task. Especially if it’s heavily raining, 3 in the morning and your car is filled of drunk underage boys. It was the first time my parents allowed me to drive on my own after the allowed time for an underage driver. I had permission to drive to the party under the condition that I was to get home early and not joke around in the car. I was supposed to drive to the party and go home immediately, and for some stupid reason I decided to do the complete opposite.

I had recently turned 16 and like most, I received my driver’s licence. My parents had been real strict and careful when my older sister got her licence. She couldn’t drive past 11pm (legal time limit for minors), she

Just as I was getting in my car, my friends asked me if I could drive them home. I was still a new driver and wanted to prove my driving skills so I agreed. Before driving them home, we stopped at a mall to eat some fast food. This mall was known as the place to eat when you are drunk so you can sober up before going home. We ate some burgers and left the mall. I noticed that one of my drunk friends took his soda with him, but at the moment I didn’t mind. As we drove through Medellin, a heavy rain began to wet the streets and a thick fog began to form. It was around 2am in the morning when we stopped at a red light. It was at this moment that my drunk friend with the soda decided to open the window and throw the cup at a car on the other side of the road. For some stupid reason, he hit the most scary looking car around. A heavily polarized, bulletproof, black SUV. The moment the cup hit the car, the driver changed lanes and got right behind us. He turned on the headlights and a siren began to roar. At first I thought it was the police and that I was getting pulled over, but then I realized it was actually the SUV that was emitting that sound. I got scared and turned left, to a less-trafficked, faster route. I thought the car was not following us. I thought they had turned right at the redlight. Little did I know that they were right behind me. As the road got narrower, I saw the van drive right past me. At this …show more content…
I don’t what would’ve happened if the SUV would’ve caught up to us and I guess we’ll never know. But must I say, that is by far the most terrifying, yet exciting experience in my life. The funny thing is that my parents never knew about this, I got home around 3:30am and went to sleep like nothing ever happened. I guess under my parent’s eyes I’m still that saint driver that still drives like a

    On September 9th, 2016 I was a passenger in rear-end car accident. At the young age of seventeen, I was ignorant, rebellious and negligent. At this time, I honestly believed that I knew it all and was always in the right; I would ignore anyone trying to guide me towards the right path or give me advice. As in the short story “Rain of Fire” by Evan Thomas, I would have never expected that a regular day could end up in such catastrophe. I learned not to trust those whom I have not gotten to know well enough.…

    As I thought not even getting out of the car my siblings start saying," you suck as a driver Marlen." I was never going to get my license I thought and felt like I was never going to get better.

    So how this speeding will increase the number of accidents? I will be answering this question of one thinks traffic jam.

    I skipped school to take my behind-the-wheel drivers test. Both of my parents came to support me while my body was crawling with nerves. I didn’t really drive often before this so, I didn’t really know what to expect and felt like I would make dumb mistakes that all older, experienced drivers knew about. I’m not going to go through the whole processes of my test step by step because it’s pretty self explanatory, but long story short, I got my license. While all my friends had their own cars, I had to drive my dad’s car which is a 2014 White Toyota Highlander.…

    And Where are you?” Looking in my rearview mirror, I saw a car coming up behind me fast. Being jolted forward and backwards so hard that my seat flew backwards. Screaming and crying, I did not know what to do. Accidents happen all the time, but you don’t really understand the impact of an accident till they happen to you. Getting out of the car, really dizzy, I was trying to make sure the other person was okay.…

    “Thats It!” With my vision red, I had no limits. With sudden flashbacks of the two speeding tickets on my record, I snapped into reality. Yet the monster inside was much to strong! Dropping the pedal to the floor, I merged violently. Screaming profanity as my speed increased I shrieked a villainous laugh of evil.…

    After that, I took the car when it was 10:30PM and I went to pick my friends up. It was a huge irresponsibility, but I did not care. Once everyone was in the car, we were heading to the party.

    Passing countless road signs and construction zones, I kept thinking to myself if we were ever going to get there. My grandparents were going to meet us at the cabin after we got back from our first day of Holiday world, so they were driving separately. Sis would not keep quiet and I had no headphones or earplugs, so I felt like I was being driven nuts instead of my dad’s Silverado. Eventually my patience paid off and we pulled into a parking spot. I looked up and there was the raven.…

    This inclusion of cars in a careless act parallels with Myrtle’s death, as the city essentially blames Gatsby for committing the accident, which is not true. Even the amount of people within the car is the same, two drivers at the party crash, and two at Myrtle’s death. This links cars with the theme of carelessness, which becomes a recurring pattern to prepare the reader for the climax and Myrtle’s death. The theme of carelessness is again connected with cars as Jordan drives with Nick, “‘They’ll keep out of my way,’ she insisted. ‘It takes two to make an accident.’ ‘Suppose you met somebody just as careless as yourself.’”(58).…
