Many crimes such as murder and theft gain a lot of attention if committed, but things like speeding past the speed limit are also a crime, so they should gain attention as well, if committed. Frank Trippett, in his excerpt, says that “It is painfully apparent today that millions of Americans…..are taking increasing liberties with all sorts of ‘minor’ laws…”. He says that Americans ignore certain laws over others, because their impact is much less than that of something like rape or murder. However, these laws’ punishments are not as great as other crimes’ punishments, therefore making them seem less significant. The “foundations of social order are profoundly shaken...when citizens take a skirting to the law”(Trippett) is not as true as you may think. People do not take these crimes lightly, they know the effects they have, and they are not ignored. The author creates a worried tone for his passage.
My first piece of advice is to get into the habit of preparing to fight a ticket. If you’re going to have any hope of fighting your speeding ticket, then, you need to know as much about the incident as any cop. If you’ve been driving for a few years, then, it can be pretty easy to let your thoughts wander from the here and now. If and when you get stopped, you need to be very aware of everything that happens before, during, and after you’re pulled over. Start developing some habits to
Thunder rolled and rain pouring down while I was taking the easier way to go to my job . Quick glance at my rear view mirror the police car behind me. At the first moment, I assumed he was not for me. When the sirens and lights started flashing , I was driving slowly. Pulling over to right and coming to full stop. After the police officer came out of his car and headed to my car, I learned I was twenty over the limit.Therefore, he received a speeding ticket , I looked at the time and my work had already
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.
“Every year 500,000 teens are injured in a car wreck. Every year 5,000 teens die in a car wreck meaning an average of 14 teens die a day. Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in the U.S. Even more than alcohol and drug abuse, violence and suicide”. Teens are always excited to earn their license and drive out on the road for the first time, but not every time will be a success, it might also be their last. I believe that teen’s cause more car crashes because they’re new to driving and don’t know the full responsibilities to the rules of the road. There are many different scenarios that lead to car wrecks, injuries and even deaths, such as texting while operating a vehicle, under the influence, and general lack of knowledge.
As I step out of my car and into the field the sun is making my face warm. The sun makes my face feel warm. Like if you have ever pulled a towel out of the dryer and put it against your face. I am walking through a field with grass up to my knees. I walk up towards the pond I am going to be dove hunting at. I get to the bank of the water and look at the water. As I am watching the little ripples of the water matching the grass swaying back and forth with the wind. I then find the perfect spot to put my chair down. My chair folds out and makes a very loud screech noise. I looked up and I saw all the black birds in the trees fly away as if a gunshot went off. As I am sitting down in my chair I load my weapon. 1. 2. 3 shells are in my gun as the
Speeding is the act or practice of exceeding the speed limit. Speeding is very dangerous. It is not only dangerous for us, but for those around us. Injury Facts, 2012 Edition tells us that thirty-two percent of motor vehicle fatalities involve speeding. That is such a large percentage that can easily be decreased if everyone, including myself, would stop speeding. The major dangers of speeding include the environmental aspect, driving too fast for road conditions, and speeding kills.
One incident I can recount when I experienced failure was when I joined Cross Country. Since, I can remember I have always excelled at everything I did, from my academics to dance class to music lessons. When I entered into my freshman year of high school, I decided I would to join an athletic team in order to keep myself occupied outside of academics. I figured joining a sport would be another good attribute to add to my resume. Initially, my mind was set to join the soccer team. However, I found out there weren’t any openings available. The only team that had an opening was The Cross Country Team. I was terrified…my parents encouraged me to join as there wasn’t an option not to.
With parallel parking being my new favorite thing I was almost certain I was going to pass my road test. I waited in line for what seemed like hours, I watched as people took off, then came back within 5 minutes of their test time. As more and more people came back, failing, I was growing more and more concerned and worried about how I was going to do, and if I was going to pass. I went through it in my head a million times as I waited, I told myself over and over that I could do it, and that I was a good driver, but nothing could reassure me as I saw for what seemed like the 50th person come out of their cars upset, giving their parents the wheel.
Thousands of people die each year from auto accidents. Many deaths caused by speeding leave families devastated. “Speeding accidents about as popular as drinking and driving accidents” (Boyles). Speed limits is supposedly what keeps us safe while out on the road. Many people think that they do not need to follow the speed limit signs. An opinion would be that speed limits should stay the same speed or even go down. Teenagers seem to like the high speeds. Teenagers are the ones who are most likely to be the ones speeding in today’s society because they think it is “cool” to speed. In today's world, some vehicles can not travel at high speed rates. No matter how old there are people feel the urge to not obey the roadway laws, which therefore kills thousand of people each year. Many factors go into the dangers of speeding including vehicles not being able to handle the high speeds, driver's reaction time,
Southern gothic is a unique style of writing that takes a certain finesse to utilize. Flannery O’ Connor does it splendidly in her short story, “A Good Man Is Hard to Find”. She takes dark humor, a southern twang and combines them to bring that unique to her southern gothic style. O’Connor graduated from Georgia State College in 1945 and went on to earn her Masters in Fine Art at Iowa State University in 1947. She even went on to go on to win a National Book Award. Primarily, the author focuses on writing short stories and, “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” is no different. This story is about a family vacation that goes terribly wrong. From an ill-tempered grandmother with a bad memory to a car accident with a few problematic witnesses the author employees foreshadowing throughout the entire story. O’Connor uses a unique blend of setting, tone, irony, and character development to make this short story a quick yet fascinating read.
At the beginning of the cross country season I hated cross country absolutely hated it, I would walk down the hallway of saline middle school look at all of the pictures on the wall and saw some of kids running and thought why is My mom doing this to me? I thought I was a terrible at it, I would run like a 9 or 10 minute mile. So when the school year came along I dreaded the end of the day I would look at the clock and think a tiny bit longer, please just a wee longer (and that is very very rare.) When the season began I had a lot of trouble, whether it was keeping up or if it was breathing problems, and My friend Zaske (who was and still is much faster than me) was nice enough that instead of going up with all the faster kids he stayed back with me, but even when he was going his slowest I still had trouble keeping up he would try to encourage me by saying “come on Michael just a little faster,” and I would respond with “i'm…
On one brusque day, I was running from the cops knowing that I shouldn’t have held up 7/11 while on probation. Now i’m really gonna get locked up now. I don’t care i’ll miss my sophomore year or if the judge gives me grace again. I’ll end up with my dad in West Cali, and i’ll end up working at his retarded library. My mom and he were divorced when I was three. Since then I never talked to him. I don’t know where Cali is, so my mom is going to drive with me there and fly back.
The morning in 12/2016 when I received a speeding citation. The officer was very professional and followed all protocols. He was very patience and understanding when it was hard for me to find the needed documentation due to having a new vehicle. He asked me, “Why was I speeding?”
The day February 20, 2016 in my personal decision of having five seconds of "fun" almost cost two years in a local jail. I took my 2006 Lexus GS 300 and my friend call me asking me if I did want him to race being so foolish accept. We went to empty road way that is out from the police eye and we start racing.
