Does your parent or older sibling that can drive, focus on the road or no? Many people think that distracted driving is not that bad of a problem, but it is worse than people think. Distracted driving means that a person is doing something that is getting their attention off the road. According to the article NHTSA in 2015 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 people were injured, just from distracted driving. That is like 300 more people died in 2015 then in 2014.
Seat belts should be mandatory because they reduce the risk of fatality, reduce economic costs and limit high-risk behavior. Wearing a seatbelt while in a vehicle can reduce your risk of death by forty-five percent. This statistic alone should convince the population to care for their lives and always wear a belt in the car. If involved in a fatal crash, many lives are affected by the death. Friends and family grieve over the loss, and sometimes never recover.

If the legal drinking age should be lowered or stay the same is an issue that is constantly talked about. One side thinks that the law is counterproductive and can cause underage teens to binge drink. While the other side believe that the law saves lives and it would be dangerous to lower the drinking age. Both sides have research and statistics to back up their position. Many who disagree with the drinking age believe that when someone can pay taxes or enlist in the military they should be able to make their own decisions about drinking.
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. A disadvantage of this age group being allowed to get a driving license would be that, that a year after this
Slow drivers are way to common. Some people at some point have had a run in with a slow driver. Even though driving slowly is not a crime, it frustrates us.

Often, schools will not hire a bus driver if his driving record is not clean for safety reasons. Many bus drivers who find themselves facing a DWI conviction wonder whether they will also lose their regular driver’s license. In many cases, that is not likely to happen. Assuming the bus driver’s BAC was under 0.08 at the time of the arrest, he would most likely be able to keep his regular license. If his BAC was at 0.08 or over, penalties regarding a regular DWI are likely to be enforced – in which case, the driver may very well lose his regular license.

Sleep is just one of the many factors that can affect safety on the road. Therefore, getting the recommended amount of sleep can save student and adult lives every single day. Some people argue that transportation costs could be high and expensive although this problem is not as important as student and community safety.Some people argue that transportation costs could be high and expensive although this problem is not as important as student and community safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, “one third of adults are chronically sleep deprived too” (Hutson 11).

Before teens leave home, parents can be sure they have a solid driving history that they can be comfortable with while gaining valuable experience.

In some cases, the disabilities they have suffered are relatively minor, however in other cases, the wounds they have are so severe, they can not hold down a regular job, and have to rely on government help from the Veterans Administration. Even medical conditions that arise in the course of serving our country that we can consider minor, such as nerve damage or posttraumatic stress disorder, can completely disrupt the lives of veterans who return to the civilian lifestyle with the sole goal of making an honest living. Purple heart car donation serves at least two different purposes. As it regards the veterans themselves, the car that you donate can enable them to have basic mobility that they may not be able to have, if all of the income that they receive consists of VA benefits.
