In phase 2, participants completed driving simulations, which is similar to the basic driving task. In this partilcaur task, the participant had to stop at couple 4-way intersections with stoplights and stop signs. There were minimum traffic and had to watch out for speeding cars that pass by. They had to press a button on the steering wheel, and had to take precaution whenever there was a car passing by. This stimulation task was conducted to measure driving mistakes, but it did not measure driving
Experienced drivers are usually adults with many years of driving practice. These drivers are the best of both worlds when it comes between the student drivers. They have good experience and grasp of road etiquette and regulations. Additionally, these drivers have had plenty of time to learn from their past mistakes. This makes experienced adult drivers the most alert, safe drivers on the road. They also carry a strong sense of driving defensively, which contributes to the success of this class.
“Slow response time, loss of clarity in vision and hearing, loss of muscle strength and flexibility, drowsiness due to medications, and a reduction in the ability to focus or concentrate” are all effects of aging identified in Westport News’s March 2010 article “Should elderly drivers be retested?”

The most accurate representation of one’s character and morality is their actions. In the opulent neighborhoods of the East Egg and West Egg, the majority of characters act immorally and dishonestly, especially towards inferior counterparts living in the Valley of Ashes (Elmore 428). Characters in The Great Gatsby are defined by their actions behind the wheel; often, driving ability and cars indicate character's attitude towards life and their relationships. Fitzgerald often uses cars as a means of revealing “carelessness and materialism of his characters” (Lance 29). Fitzgerald consistently uses personification to link cars with the personality of its driver, further developing the connection between characters and their driving. In The Great Gatsby, Scott Fitzgerald
The purposes of this assessment are to understand about myself, to build future plans for finding a job, and to improve my relationship with other people. By using the assessment, I can recognize what I need to do in order to develop several skills such as communication or attitude.
This document belongs to the information period of United States history. This period was important to the U.S, because it was the beginning toward people from various parts of the world being able to keep connected with one another. This period in history bought the computer the internet. The internet is what enabled not only different people to stay connected with one another but it also enabled research to be done quicker. Before there would have to be books used to find information but with the use of the internet searches were able to be redirected into faster answers. Closely before the 1990’s there was the fall of the Berlin Wall in the late 1980’s. The ultimate fall of the Berlin Wall was very significant to the 1990’s since this showed
Elders who have some issues may restrict them from operating their vehicle. 80 percent of people in their 70’s suffer from arthritis. Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints and if drivers over the age of 70 have that it makes it harder for them to turn the wheel. If they can not turn the wheel they can get in an accident. Drivers over the age of 70 who have weaker muscles, reduced flexibility and limited range of motion restrict them the ability to grip and turn the steering wheel, press the accelerator or brake. Therefore, 80 percent of drivers over the age 70 suffer from arthritis which makes it harder for them to control their
Multiple drivers surviving a serious car crash generally require some form of occupational therapy for recovery. The Occupational Therapist, conducts comprehensive driving evaluations by developing plans for the individual to continue driving, or assist the person in transitioning from driver to passenger. These decisions are based upon clinical assessments of the individual’s vision, cognition, motor performance, reaction time, and knowledge of traffic rules, as well as provide a behind-the wheel assessment of one’s driving skills.
According to the Center of Disease Control in 2012 there were 19.5 adults in Texas reported having a disability compared with 21.4 in the United States and Territories ("Texas Disability Status Overview," n.d.). Mrs. Jones, will benefit from the American Disability Act laws because she is now considered disabled due to her injuries from the hit and run accident. She will be able to receive assistance from the local transportation office such as MITS and other local transportation services that provide handicap assistance for the disabled. We will also ensure that her home is handicap accessible. Mrs. Jones will have to use a wheelchair and walker temporarily until she improves her range of motions and be able to stand without any assistance.
Taking the RHIT exam is the final step after getting the HIT degree for which I have driving and restraining forces that I will take in account in order to succeed.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 with the purpose to prevent discrimination of a disability in the workplace or in an educational setting. However, the ADA too narrowly defined the definition of a disability and this term was more broadly defined in the 2008 passing of American with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA). The ADAAA is now the standard used to define disability and determine the accommodation necessary of the institution. This paper examines what defines a disability and what is considered a reasonable accommodation in order to answer whether or not permanent absence is considered a reasonable accommodation. To answer this question I employ a scenario of a person with anxiety
The ADA affects a wide variety of people and it is intended to protect those who have a physical or mental impairment and are limited by one or more life activity. Examples of life activities include basic functioning, personal care, walking, moving, seeing, speaking, or hearing (Bruckman et al., 1998). In addition to people with disabilities also affected are public and private businesses, employers, government and state ran programs, construction companies, transportation, and communities as a whole (Bruckman et al., 1998).
The plaintiff is a 48-years old assistant store manager considered to have worked for the company for 17-years. He got denied a promotion to the store manager’s position on various occasions. Some of the younger employees he had trained got promoted instead. Wal-Mart, therefore, said that he didn’t receive the promotions as he had received performance progress coaching in the past year and the company policies didn’t allow an employee’s promotion with any effective coaching in his files (Gould IV, 2013)
You are failing a class in school. Were you not prepared for the quiz? Did your parents not help you? Or do you have an awful teacher? Whose fault is it if a student is failing a few classes in school; the parent, the teacher, or the student? Students themselves are at fault for failing classes in school. It is one thing if you are struggling as a student at a young age, but as you progress in school, the responsibility becomes your own. Students are at fault for failing school because it is the student’s responsibility for them completing the work and the skills that are being taught, it is not your parent’s job to do your work for you, and if your teacher is doing a bad job teaching then it is up to you to get extra help.
