A man named Henry Paul was driving more than 80 mph while impaired by alcohol, lost control of his car in a tunnel that caused the death of himself, Princess Diana and her boyfriend Fayed (Dickey, Christopher, and Mark Hosenball 54). Drivers should never be able to be on the road while intoxicated. After parties, a trusted friend needs to make sure that the drinker gets home safe, without driving drunk. If all traffic enforcement officers used passive sensors, over 700,000 drunk drivers could
Should someone be able to text while one is driving? Texting while driving is really bad and has killed many people in the world, so why is it still legal? Truthfully though laws are amazing in theory, but not everyone will follow them. Texting should be banned by the government because a law, because without one it can only go down hill.
What is now known is that everyone in the society is isolated and they barely talk, learn and much less see or want to face reality. Whether it is one or more of those reasons, it can be seen how this society doesn't have much to it or have some new things coming out of it because no one is contributing in a helpful way. If only they took into account what was wrong, like Montag did, they could face the problems and put a stop to it. Since the censorship blocks literacy, it takes a toll on everyone's awareness and communication
And the real problem that causes these horrific accidents is the difference in speed rather than speed itself. As you have probably experienced, while some folks on the highway may go fast than the
In Britain today, more than five thousand teens each year are killed, from being involved in a car accident. And that in the countries that have laws saying that that people can only be legal to drive when they pass their test at the age of 21, the death rates are surprisingly lower. In this essay I will show the two sides to whether or not the driving age in Britain should be risen to twenty-one years old. One of the main reason why I think that the driving age should be raised In Britain would be because of the amount of deaths which are being created due to young ages and it could also be because of tests not being hard enough.
Legal driving age has been a constant argument as the major reason for death among teens is these accidents happening. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1678 drivers in 2014 have been reported dead aged 16 to 20 years along with some new issues like texting while driving; other mobile usages along with distracted driving (Rogers, 2015). Driving age should remain at 16 as it will make teenagers more frustrated if they wait till the age of 18 and with experience they will get better. Rising driving age will not make much difference as it will only irritate the teenagers who are willing to acquire driving license. College going students doesn’t like to depend on public transport as changing buses and trains tire them out instead having own vehicle gives
In the essay, “Turn Car On; Turn Phone Off”, we see research done at Harvard University shows that distracted drivers on cell phones cause roughly 2,600 fatalities crashed each year and 570,000 accidents. (115) Distracted driving is driving while doing another activity, thus having your attention taken away from the task at hand, which is driving. While there could potentially be several types of distractions that could occur while driving, texting causes you to take your eyes off the road, remove your hands from the steering wheel and it takes your mind off the road. Drivers who text and drive put their lives and the lives of others on the road at risk for injury and even death. While more and more drivers are multitasking through their day, we are made aware how more education and resources are needed to help solve this growing epidemic.
You can 't prevent a storm from coming, but you can prepare for it. You can 't control how someone else behaves, but you can control how you react.” Laurie’s obsessive behaviors are not healthy and even when the war is going on, she continues to stress about it. She never considers changing her attitude towards the problem or trying to lower her stress levels by considering that the war could be a solution to their situation. Laurie’s inability to give up control in the long run ends up hurting herself the
Ernest Greenwood once said, “Accidents and particularly street and highway accidents, do not happen- they are caused.” Car accidents in the world are increasing every day and hundreds of people die in car accidents every week because of it. In fact, it is one of the leading causes of death among teenagers. Car accidents occur mostly due to negligent and reckless drivers on the road and they often don’t realize the consequences of their actions until it is too late. The consequences may not be the same for all drivers.
As what Sir James Bentayao once said in our lecture, “The past is a good place to visit but not a good place to stay.” The past of how women are treated should not be the same as of now. Also, being free does not mean that we are totally free. What I am talking about in this paper is not to let women be totally free. What I mean is to let women choose what they really want without hurting or affecting other people.
Cell Phones are a well-known source of distraction for drivers. The impairments associated with using a cell phone behind the wheel are on par with those of drunk driving, and the US National Safety Council has implicated device usage in 26% of all vehicular crashes (Bernstein & Bernstein 1). Distracted driving is a growing public safety hazard, with the number of fatal wrecks increasing each year. Research shows that there is a great need for increasing public awareness of the potential risks associated with cell phones and other devices. Due to the proliferation of text messaging, smart phones, and interactive apps; drivers are more prone to take their eyes off of the road.
Teenagers pose the biggest threat because they are constantly on their phones believing they can simultaneously text and drive. Statistics prove that eight of every ten texting accidents is caused by a teen driver. Making it illegal to use phones when driving would initially decrease this problem. Answering phone calls while driving is just as terrible if not worse than texting. Maybe when talking on the phone you 're still able to watch the road, but your focus is on who is talking to and what they 're talking about.

A highly effective approach to the problem of distracted driving is to make its penalties as severe as DUI penalties. This dangerous driving behavior, which has become a national pandemic, refers to objects or activities (either internal or external) that cause a diversion in the driver’s attention. As a result, the driver switches focus to a non-driving activity—such as using a cellphone, eating a meal, or looking at a billboard. The current fine imposed by the State of California for using electronic devices behind the wheel is only $20, the lowest in the country, for a first-time offense (Bundy and Raja,1). Contrast that with a first-time DUI offender who faces a six-month jail time and a heavy fine of up to $3,000.
