Today it has become common to know the thousands of traffic accidents that occur in our country because of the irresponsibility of drivers who do not measure the consequences of their actions; although this attitude is not only of the drivers but also of the lack of culture and recklessness of pedestrians that have thousands of lives lost daily. The advertisement shown above created by the company named “eco-via; is an example of a car accident caused by a distracted conductor. Showing how a car crash impacts as getting punched by some other individual. The primary intended audience is anyone who drives a vehicle encourage them being more responsible and not to get distract while being behind the wheel. Pathos is the main appeal used in this
It is easily perceived to the audience is multiple ways. The first example of this is in the title of the commercial itself, “Close to Home”. In a survey recently done by Progressive Insurance, fifty-two percent of car accidents occurred five miles or less away from the persons home, seventy-seven percent occurred fifteen miles or less away from the home. This shows ethos because it is using ethics and fact, the crashes are so close to home, and applying it to the title and basis of the commercial. Both drivers seemed to be in a rush to go somewhere.
Seat Belt Laws Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for people ages 1-54 in the United States every year. Seat belts are the most effective way to prevent some of these deaths. With that being said, primary seat belt laws should be recognized and made illegal not to wear a seatbelt when riding in a car in all 50 states. While wearing a seat belt, injuries and fatalities are less likely to occur in an accident. Too many people disregard the risks they are taking when they choose not to wear a seatbelt in a car.
My own safety and the safety of the people around me and is much more important than any text. Texting while driving increases the risks of crashing by 23 times, putting yourself and others in danger. There have been too many incidents of people and families being severely injured and dead because of one person who was distracted by their phone by driving. Although I sometimes feel tempted to look at my phone while driving, these tragedies remind and refrain me from doing so.
Distracted driving causes many accidents in the US every years. With being a distracted driving, around “3,154 people are killed in distraction-related crashes and about 424,000 people are injured in crashes involving a distracted driver” (Harper). In what ways can the people develop solutions to prevent distracted driving for teenagers? One way to help prevent distracted driving is to enforce stricter laws for the amount of passengers allowed in a car with a teenage driver. Backseat drivers can cause the most distractions for a driver and also the use of any technology while driving.
Sports should be hard and require skill and very strategic. Although some say it is entertaining, is not very strategic.You ride around in circles and try to go as fast as you can. If we are considering NASCAR a sport, then we should do the same for mini golf, go kart races, and board games sports. Many people have a car and drive it places, should all of those people be considered athletes. Sure, their car might not go as fast but you are still just sitting in a seat with your foot pushing down on the pedal and making a turn every once in awhile.
Now with the head injure, I 'm struggling to get D’s.” (I Wish It Had Been Me). This injury has now changed her life forever, and there is nothing that can be done to change that. Some claim that they should be grateful that they are still alive; what people do not realize is that this is just as traumatic as death. For now he or she lives in fear, that every time this person drives in a roadside vehicle that this will happen to him or her once again. Why should anyone have to continue living this horrific reality caused by another’s idiotic decision to drink and drive?
Gregg Easterbrook, a fellow of the Brookings Institution and author of The Progress Paradox, argues in his article “Road Kill,” that people in the United States are not paying attention to a major killer: our roads. In his essay, Easterbrook explains the lack of attention to the threat of road accidents, even comparing it to 9/11, which has become a serious threat to Americans on the road, and even worldwide. Many Americans dismiss the problem, even though it is huge even if it is not perceived as a huge threat like terrorism. Some causes of the rise in accident casualties proposed by Easterbrook are distracted driving and the rapid increase of horsepower. Easterbrook proposes multiple solutions to the problem, such as increased legislation on distracted driving and reducing horsepower in cars (A1-4).
Short of running the car off the road, it takes a lot to make a sedan roll over. However, this isn 't the case for a big semi-truck. Rollover accidents are a common occurrence in the trucking industry and are responsible for many truck driver deaths each year. Most if not all truck rollovers are preventable. Preventing rollovers requires two things: a reliable truck and safe driver who has the right knowledge and good driving skills.
There are many companies working on self driving cars, including Honda, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Tesla. However, driverless cars have caused many accidents, some even end up fatal. Self driving cars are unsafe because they are at a high risk of being hacked, having an incident happen that the car cannot administer, and the cars are not predictable enough to put peoples lives in danger because of mistakes. Self driving cars are vulnerable to getting hacked. Everybody has heard of computers getting hacked, but driverless cars are basically moving computers.
Concussions are also not limited to contact sports, they can occur in any sports. The actual injury of a concussion is not the issue of this crisis that is ongoing; the real issue at hand is the failure to manage them correctly. That is something that is very important to note because thousands of concussions go unaddressed every year, which can cause severe brain damage, especially on the professional level. The focus of this issue is in the NFL because of recent studies that have come out about the true dangers of concussions. The NFL is currently on the hot seat dealing with this issue due to the amount of retired players who
The death of Earnhardt was tragic to everyone who knew and loved him. Even the fans who only just watched him felt a feeling of pain and suffering just like the family did. When race car drivers strap into their race cars they don’t think about the risks and danger they are putting their selves in. Since they have been racing they have been wrecking and its something nobody will be able to avoid, but with advances in science doctors are pushing to reduce the risk of injury and possibly death.
Their unit responds to a lot of car wrecks of off highway 575, which are either mild or deadly accidents. He said 3 overall between both stations, eighty percent are medical calls. He said, “sometimes you see things that will never leave your mind and you constantly are seeing those images”. After sharing all this information with me, Josh wanted to just add some quick facts to better my knowledge of fire fighting. He informed me that, Pre- Incident planning crews go out once year to do planning around the city.
