According to Penmesta and Pulugurtha, violating traffic laws can result in serious injury and even fatalities between motorist in the United States. While people are affected by speeding motorist daily, other factors, such as drugs and alcohol, are two times more likely to cause more severe accidents as opposed by a sober person. My issue is excessive speeds have been the factor in deaths across the country. In their article, their research has pointed out that people that have broken the traffic laws has resulted in crashes and fatalities, but we also need a retraining program to achieve zero traffic deaths. The second article, A new approach for assessing and training drivers’ speed management, supports the finding by Penmasta and Pulugurtha.
Odysseus shows this courage when he says to the cyclops, “ We are from Troy, Archaeans, blown off course by shifting gales on the Great South Sea.” ( Fitzgerald 495). Even though he was talking to a frightening one eyed monster Odysseus still had the courage to talk to him. Odysseus is the leader that will show courage when no one else will. Additionally, Odysseus had tricked the cyclops with wine and then injured him. Odysseus and his men had, “ bored that great eye socket while blood ran out around the red-hot bar.
Another similarity between the Anglo and the Chicano Cop is that they both want to resolve the Fender-Bender. Perez offered to pay for the damages to the van, the Anglo then explains to Perez, ‘This car isn’t mine...It belongs to the company I work for. I’m sorry, but I’ve got to report this to the police, so that I don’t have to pay for the damage’ (qtd in Perez 176). The Anglo just wants the police report to show his employers he was not at fault and they wouldn’t charge him for the damages, even though he feels pity for Perez, this is the best way to resolve the Fender-Bender. The Chicano cop, on the other hand, believes that the proper way to resolve the Fender-Bender is to punish Perez.
I took that one to court and the judge threw it out. Same cop gave me a ticket for not having tail lights - after someone smashed into the back of my car and broke them. Judge threw that one out too.” Many people believe cops are constantly on a power trip and are trying to execute their authority regardless of the situation. It is not false to say that motorcycle cops undoubtedly have a very negative reputation, but why? Psychologically speaking, according to the theory of Negativity Bias, something very negative will generally have more of an impact on a person 's behavior and cognition than something equally emotional but positive.
O’Hara illustrates this in the first chapter, when Julian’s swift decline begins. Irritated by the abrasive jokes of the local big shot, English throws a glass of liquor into a much despised but universally feared man. Unfortunately, Harry Reilly, the recipient to the highball in the face, is the biggest investor in Julian’s car dealership. Of course, this is not the real reason for English’s fall into the social and psychological abyss, however it is just the tipping point. O’Hara states, “He remembered throwing a drink at Harry Reilly, throwing it in his fat, cheap, gross Irish face.” (O’Hara) This is important because it
All in all, we can conclude that intoxicated driving is a bad idea. No part or such a choice will end well for anyone involved. But let’s say you get away with it once or twice, now you’ve lulled yourself into a false state of security. When something finally does happen, you will never see it coming. Due to not only the obvious consequences of drunk driving, but also the mere shame and guilt associated with taking an innocent life, it’s safe to say that intoxicated driving really is a “Punch in the
So that 24% could cause deaths, crashes and injuries. All those updates and advances in aren’t in everyone’s budget and not everyone can get them or has them so suing your phone isn’t worth taking all those risks. As you now know distracted driving is a very big risk to take. Distracted driving is dangerous and leads to many deaths and all those laws are there to protect you but people just don’t follow them also all those types of distraction are equally as dangerous as just texting while driving. This topic is very controversial because not everyone agrees but all those risks you take while driving can be avoided and not using your phone while driving can save lives.
Police Body Cameras When I consider the police I think of how they protect people and our city. Some people assume that cops are just trash and they hate them. The topic of police body cameras sounded like a good idea to me because many people are always filming cops at their worst. When they happen to be beating up on someone, but notice it is always only after the police “agonized” the person then the camera turns off. It never shows how this individual may have been acting towards the officers.
Even the justice system believes, as if they shouldn’t be convicted. “The legal system doesn’t like second guessing police officers because they know the job is hard and violent and they have to keep bad guys off the streets ” ( Stinson para. 3). For a regular person convicted of a crime they are more harshly faced then police who gets a free pass. Instead of taking responsibility of the situation, they claim they did not do anything even when there is clear evidence.
Investigating the police department decreases the claims of the abuse and the brutality. Supporters of the police officers claims they do not target members of minority groups. “Mark Fuhrman, a white LAPD detective who had investigated the case, making disparaging remarks about blacks and admitting to various forms of misconduct, including beating suspects.”(Police Brutality ). Accordingly, bystanders show a video that Los Angeles Police department brutalized Rodney King after a high-speed freeware chase. The law officers was not charged for the incident, so it created a riot in Los Angeles.
