Their isn’t just one type of distracted driving but there is many, and not everyone is interested in learning of them when they could save you from getting tickets. Distracted driving is a very big problem that causes pain to many people.
Driving distracted has been considered by many as the same as driving while intoxicated. Driving while distracted should be addressed is as serious as driving while intoxicated. If there are laws on driving while intoxicated, there should also be laws and regulations on distracted driving. Law makers and police should enforce this health hazard because it could save many lives. Technology should not try to introduce a new solution to this issue, but rather simplify the issue.
Texting or calling while driving can subtract from the attention you are giving to your surrounding, and poses a serious hazard to the citizens around you. While there are ways to avoid texting and driving, there will always be some individuals who will choose to text and drive, so the only way to ensure that people do not text and drive is to put laws in place that punish folks who decide to put others in harm’s way. Cell phones and smartphones are a huge advantage in today’s society. They allow us to communicate with friends, family, coworkers, etc… This technology is normally beneficial, but there are times when you need to put your phone aside and pay attention to what is physically happening around you. One of these times is when you
Every day, millions of people get into their cars, which in return, subjects them into the vulnerable, and quite possible, position of getting pulled over. For many of those who have had to experience the nerve-wracking feeling of getting pulled over by a regular cop, there is only one thing society has made them dread more; getting pulled over by a cop riding a motorcycle. The feelings of hostility and resentfulness towards motorcycle cops are mainly due to the habitually negative misconceptions society has bestowed upon them. Although related, misconceptions are not to be confused with stereotypes. Stereotypes are the truthfully held, yet oversimplified, idea of a particular group of people.
So what is our government doing to try and prevent people from texting and driving? Jeff Hecht, author of “Just Hang Up and Drive” explains that 41 states have banned people from texting while driving and six different states have banned teens from using their phones while driving. This didn’t come into effect until many accidents occurred in which they couldn’t ignore the problem any longer (par. 10). So next time we are driving and get tempted by a message just remember that most of us are not good and multitasking and driving.
I am guilty of being distracted while driving. I’ll usually be changing the music, or trying to read a text. According to the Huffington Post, ‘’ 9 Americans are killed everyday from motor vehicle accidents that involved distracted driving…’’ That statistic definitely shocked me. In my mind, I see primarily only teenagers texting while driving, but I see more older people do it also. For example, one day while I was passing a man on a highway he was just playing a game on his phone.
Donovan was probably a nice kid, but wasn’t wearing his seatbelt and now is make it tough on kids getting their license. Now people are think about raising the driving age to 18, but that won’t help. Raising the driving age just because of idiotic decisions made by teens. They should enforce the laws and making them stricter and safer. First of all, the real threat to the driver is the temptations and distractions that happen in the vehicle.
Says something that we need to change, in the United States, because odds with a number of accidents there are on a regular basis, the United States is higher in casualties. Just because there is less law enforcement, but that does not mean the rules need to be broken. According to Bener’s stats collected, men take the win on five of the ten most common crash types, with one being going to fast and missing a turn, along with angle collisions (60). Meaning the cause for men’s accidents is plain and simple, their speeding. After casualties, trying to brag, lack of time to react and involving other cars unintentionally is taken out, speeding is a significant problem that slowly can be taken care off if humans stop and notice the decisions they are making.
After a moment of thinking, he then decides to stop his car. In the case of obedience, if that someone he sees is a police officer, then he will have no choice besides to stop his car. To demonstrate how this can affect the society, blind obedience will be an example. A person of authority can command a group of persons to do bad deeds only for the sake of his or her own benefit. Sometimes or even almost most of the time, people follow the authorities without ever evaluating the actions and plus with the words of promises that are given by the authority, promises that they will benefit from their actions though it can hurt or the deed itself are really morally wrong.
Arnold Friend tries to hypnotize people by the language he uses on them. For example, Arnold tries to get Connie in his car willingly when he says, “Dontcha wanta see what’s on the car? Don’tcha wanta go for a ride,” by saying this he is distracting her attraction because she is now more interested in the car than in him (Oates 3). Arnold continues to try to get Connie in the car when he puts on Bobby King, but Connie doesn’t go for the bait and she doesn't want to go with Arnold. When Arnold realizes his plan is failing he threatens Connie by saying, “ This is how it is honey: you come out and we’ll drive away, have a nice ride.
