The process of getting my driver's license was very long. First, I needed to complete 33 hours of driver's education. In this class, I learned all of the rules of the road and parts of the car. One part I particularly did not enjoy from the class was all the situations you could get yourself into from driving while intoxicated, not paying attention to the road, and texting while driving. Any of these things can cause horrific car accidents, and even death.
Older students tend to behave very dangerously while driving due to a gained, habitual self-assurance. These drivers believe that because they haven’t crashed yet; they never will. This means older student drivers push the envelope of safety more than any other class of driver. Many older drivers text and eat while driving, don’t wear seat belts, and race with each other on public roads. A volatile mix of these behaviors can puts them at an even higher risk than new drivers. Bullard has a large crop of these drivers, and speaking from personal experience… they aren’t fun to ride
James woke up and brushed his teeth and then he ate a large breakfast of bacon and eggs. After James ate his breakfast, he got ready for the day ahead. June 19th was going to be a great day. He was excited and nervous because he was going to take his driving test for the first time and his mom said if he passed it she would buy him a game.
If an elderly loved one insists on driving, take them to retake their driving test to determine if they will not only put others in danger but also themselves in danger while on the road. When elderly drivers
Specific purpose: Inform audience of the dangers of elderly driving and persuade their opinion towards retesting licenses after the age of seventy.
He compares driving to the way students write in the end of his writing. He says, “it is more important to allow students to first experience how language can be a vehicle for discovering how they see the world. And what matters in the journey--at least initially--is not what kind of car you’re driving, but where you end up” (21 Genres). He uses this reason to support his claim that letting students first write what is on the tip of his or her tongue and simply getting the words onto paper let the writer say what they mean without the pressure to write an acclaimed novel their first time
“Driving just fine? You’ve been swerving into the other lanes and hitting the rumble strips! You can’t even drive in a straight line. May I remind you that you almost hit an overpass?” My forehead was growing hot, and I could feel it spread to my cheeks. I leaned over the center console and turned the air-conditioning on full blast again.
For the practice of Occupational Therapy it teaches meaningful, functional, and adaptive life skills; it is a profession that enhances activities of daily living (ADL), and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL). IADL’s including community mobility, is a critical area for the United States citizens. Driving is an instrumental activity that needs addressed with each client for safety and testing motor movements. Between 2002 and 2012, more than 1.5 million U.S. soldiers returned to the United States after an active duty Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraq Freedom (OIF; U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs [VA], 2012a). Soldiers are trained specifically to what branch of service they’re going into. Going through strict training their units,
Injury is the single biggest killer of Australian youth; more than all other causes combined.(1) The topic of this report will be to research the effectiveness of the current laws regarding the graduated licence system, focusing on 16-24 year old drivers and the measures that must be taken, to counteract and eliminate the effects that immaturity and inexperience
In Plano, Texas, many drive to get from place to place, but for this suburban mom’s fear of driving has gotten difficult. For Kalika Patel, driving was never a difficult task, but through past experiences it has gotten difficult. She said this “started when I was running regular errands, but suddenly my blood pressure increased, and I became dizzy” This may not sound like anything major, but after this first incident, this occurred to her many other times. Mrs. Patel said “this kept happening over and over again, finally it felt as it was an anxiety problem” Currently, she still deals with anxiety, but she said “that [her] condition has gotten much better from the few years ago, when this innocent first occurred,” as she told our news team.
Intro: Imagine waking up and getting ready for your day in a car that picked you up with no driver. I support self driving cars because i feel it will improve the future of driving. Self driving cars will save cost on insurance and healthcare facilities. Also self driving cars will help disabled and elderly individuals and will take the danger of driving out of the equation.
We finally made it, the day has come when we arrived at Piermont New Hampshire. Our week long vacation in July has just begun! Even though it was a long two hour drive from Ludlow, it was worth the wait. The jeep wrangler, black in color had pulled up into the driveway. Its boxy structure covered with bug splatters on the windshield from the long ride up. It came to a stop, dad had turned off the engine and at the same time the both of us had let out a deep sigh. Feeling relaxation taking over our bodies, we let go of the past tensions we normally have when packing the car before we left. Dad, wearing his usual tie die shirt and black shorts with yellow stripes on the side pulled out the keys from the ignition and placed them into his right
It was just a regular Thursday at Nain High School, or so I thought. It started with everyone getting ready for the football game. Makayla was warming up her drum solo thing, Samantha was warming up her section of the band, we cheerleaders were stretching, and the football players were running. Our school isn’t big enough to do anything fancy, like big competitions or any crazy halftime shows, but we do have a some charter buses. Our charter buses are usually white, with red stripes across the whole bus. The windows are usually tinted, and the seats are usually a carpet-like fabric. So I wasn’t expecting to look at the charter bus that we were using that day to be a bright red, with the outline of the bottom of the bus to be white. The tires were a weird orange
Everything you do in a car other than driving, such as talking to a passenger, singing a song, or checking your phone are all distractions which can take your mind off driving and cause an accident (Leonard). Having restrictions on new drivers has shown to decrease the amount of crashes caused by teenagers. “The researchers found that States with the most restrictive graduates licensing programs - such as those that required supervised driving teams as well as having night-driving restrictions and passenger limitations - saw a 26% reduction in the rate of fatal crashes involving 16-year-old drivers compared with states without any restriction” (Roan). Graduated licensing programs were linked to 1,348 fewer fatal crashes involving 16-year-olds. These restrictions prevent the teenagers from driving without an adult 21 or older, and with more than one passenger other than family in the car. Also, placing time restrictions on them prevents them from driving late at night when they would be very tired. Restrictions on teen driving has made it safer for everyone on the
I was finally stepping outside my comfort zone learning to ride a bike. The most memorable time in my life was the time my dad taught me how to ride my first bike. At the age of six he taught me the basics of riding a bike. Along with rules that were set in order to help me be responsible with my bike. I learned to ride a bike without training wheels. He also taught me to stay motivated no matter how many times I wanted to give up because of my mistakes. I remember the day like it was yesterday even though it was eighteen years ago. This is one of the proudest moments in my life. It’s a lesson that I’ll never forget. Being taught how to ride a bike for the first time was exciting.
