In the modern era, automobiles remain the dominant form of transportation for most Americans. Indeed, people across the United States rely on their cars to get to and from work, the grocery store, and to other destinations on a daily basis. It is hard to imagine what life would be like without cars, but the reality is that the internal combustion engine and the automobile has only been around for about 100 years, and it wasn’t that long ago that the world’s inhabitants largely relied on the horse and buggy for everyday transportation needs. Following the end of world war two and the creation of America’s interstate highway system, automobile travel became the dominant form of transportation altogether, and man has never looked back. The world today is smaller than it has ever been, and the Internet and smartphone have made communities more interconnected than ever. Despite the many miracles and benefits of cars, there are many dangers operating motor vehicles, and people are killed daily. In Florida, one woman who was allegedly drinking and driving while intoxicated five times higher than the legal limit, struck and killed a mother of three. The woman was a bartender and aged 25 years old. The mother succumbed to her injuries at a hospital. The woman is now behind bars. 

Drinking and driving is all too common in the United States. In Las Vegas, another drunk driver struck and killed a 25 year old woman. The woman had jolted out into the roadway when she was struck by an individual driving a 2022 Mazda. She died at the scene. 

Another man committed a hit and run in Levittown, Pennsylvania. A man struck and killed a man who was riding a skateboard shortly after 10 o’clock in the evening. The man who committed the hit and run attempted to report his vehicle stolen. He later gave up his attempt, turning himself in to authorities.
