Capstone Project Help: Critical Analysis and Resolutions

For those identified problems/issues with many causes and effects, there are potentially many solutions, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The solutions may impact just one of the effects or may impact several effects. The goal this week is to generate as many solutions as possible based on the critical analysis of the problem created earlier. At this stage, don't worry about whether the solution is effective. Simply generate as many potential solutions as you can. Once you have generated a list, select two potential resolutions and identify the advantages and disadvantages of each solution. You will share these with your peers; pay particular attention to their responses about which solution might work best in alleviating the problem/issue you selected.

To prepare:

Review the "Problem Solving Template," located in the Resources area on the left navigation bar.
Review the causes and effects that you generated
Review the critical analysis narrative that you prepared.
Think about some potential resolutions to your identified problem and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

two potential resolutions to the identified problem/issue and explain their advantages and disadvantages. Provide specific example

...ards to the rules behind teen licensing as there are gaps that lead to driver mis-education and on-the-road fatal decisions. Supporting data (McCartt, Teoh, Braitman & Hellinga, 2010), "Graduated licensing laws that include strong night-time and passenger restrictions and laws that delay the learner's permit age and licensing age are associated with lower teenage fatal crash rates. States that adopt such laws can expect to achieve substantial reductions in crash deaths."
3. Peer pressure, teen and social culture as well as personal issue lead teens to consume and abuse alcohol. Data source (Office of Adolescent Health, 2015), "Genetic factors and life stressors influence adolescents' alcohol abuse."
4. DUI deaths are exacerbated by the presence of passengers endangered by a teen driver who is alcohol-impaired. Data source (SPS, n.d.), "Approximately two-thirds of teen passenger deaths (ages 13 to 19) occur when other teenagers are driving."

Critical analysis of the issue shows that alcoholism and alcohol abuse and subsequently teen DUI begins with initial interest. A curiosity. Socially speaking, drinking is seen as a 'normalized', even idealized past-time. Alcohol consumption via the social media is in most cases seen as fashionable, even desirable. For teens, it is a social life involving parties, meeting up, fun, hooking up and consuming alcohol to relax, to feel more confident and in most cases to fit in. Consuming alcohol is seen as a rite of passage and with its association to fun and idealised social lives, consumption can be abused leading to alcohol addiction and in the case of teen DUIs, vehicle crashes and teen deaths. But if we critically look into teen alcohol abuse, one can also argue that alcohol becomes a 'gateway drug' for if they find that alcohol is acceptable, they can also dabble into other substances starting from marijuana to 'hard drugs' like heroin and cocaine. Behavior and risk-taking escalates according to exposure and the resulting culture of the teen group in ...
