  我们在雅思口语里可以列举出一系列由酒驾造成的悲剧,引出必要性,再介绍一下该法规的惩罚措施,最后解释一下它的合理性,义愤填膺的多墨迹墨迹,等着考官说Thank you就完事儿了。

  In China, we have zero tolerance about drink-driving. And I think it is the best law ever.

  Drinking and driving is one of the most common causes of traffic accidents. After you drink, you just couldn't think clearly, and you’ll become dizzy, plus, your reactions will be really slow, so it’s a super dangerous behavior, both for the driver and other people on the road. I’ve read so much tragic news about reckless drivers taking innocent people’s lives after having so much alcohol at parties. This kind of behavior is so irresponsible, and it breaks up families. It’s just so not fair to those victims, they didn’t do anything wrong, why do they have to suffer because of a mistake someone else made?

  So this law is really necessary, and there are tough penalties for offenders. According to the law, if you are charged with driving under the influence, your license will be suspended or disqualified, depending on how drunk you are. And other punishments include fines and prison sentences. These can be effective deterrent to offenders.

  And another thing I have to say is, this law doesn’t stop people from having fun. I mean, you could go out and drink all you want, but after the party’s over, just call someone to pick you up, there are so many apps that provide service like that. So I think everybody should obey this law and value others’ lives as well as your own life.


  zero tolerance = the policy of applying laws very strictly so that people are punished even for offences that are not very serious

  drink-driving = driving a vehicle after drinking too much alcohol

  drinking and driving = the act of driving a car after drinking alcohol

  dizzy = feeling as if everything is spinning around you and that you are not able to balance = giddy例如:

  Climbing so high made me feel dizzy.

  I suffer from dizzy spells (= short periods when I am dizzy).

  reckless = showing a lack of care about danger and the possible results of your actions例如:

  He showed a reckless disregard for his own safety.

  She was a good rider, but reckless.

  He had always been reckless with money.

  to cause death by reckless driving

  penalty = a punishment for breaking a law, rule or contract例如:

  to impose a penalty

  Assault carries a maximum penalty of seven years' imprisonment.

  The penalty for travelling without a ticket is £200.

  Contractors who fall behind schedule incur heavy financial penalties.

  You can withdraw money from the account at any time without penalty.

  Harsher penalties are being imposed for crimes involving firearms.

  driving under the influence = DUI = (in some states in the US) the crime of driving a vehicle after drinking too much alcohol. It is a less serious crime than ‘driving while intoxicated’.

  deterrent = a thing that makes somebody less likely to do something (= that deters them)例如:

  Hopefully his punishment will act as a deterrent to others.

  the country's nuclear deterrents (= nuclear weapons that are intended to stop an enemy from attacking)
