Californians barely even have an incentive to not text and drive, but in Alaska, people will kick the habit if they have to pay a gigantic fine and spend time in jail. In New Jersey, the maximum penalty is just $400. Honestly, this doesn 't stop people. This is not always the most efficient way to get people to stop texting and driving. Many people think that the fine is not
This view was later expressed by artist John Gast in his 1872 painting American Progress. In addition, some settlers had religious motivations for moving West. For example, Mormons who moved to Utah hoped to establish a new society for their believers, away from persecution in the cities where they had once settled. Polk’s belief in Manifest Destiny contributed to actions he took as president that resulted in the United States gaining territory in the West. These actions included annexing territory, fighting a war, and signing treaties.
I intend to use this source to support my analyses of the marketing strategies that Wrigley used to promote chewing gum and expand its markets in the United States and all over the world. Feigenbaum, Harvey. "America 's Cultural Challenge Abroad." Political Science Quarterly (Academy of Political Science) 126.1 (2011): 107-29. Print This article focuses on how the United States’
It is very common to see young male, less educated, and live in rural areas not wearing their seatbelt. B. A 2007 journal Associations Between Sociodemographics And Safety Belt Use In States With And Without Primary Enforcement Laws written by Laurie F. Beck, Ruth A. Shults, Karin A. Mack, and George W. Ryan explains that there are two types of seatbelt laws, which vary by each state. First are the primary laws authorizing police to stop drivers to issue a citation when a person does not wear a seatbelt is the only violation. Secondly, there are secondary laws that only allow police to issue a seatbelt citation when another traffic violation has committed.
Minimum Driving Age The controversy of raising or maintaining the minimum driving age has been an ongoing feud. More recently, studies have emerged supporting the idea of the minimum age being too low, contributing to the high mortality rate of teenagers due to car crashes. The opposing side of this argument believes addressing other areas of issue with teenage drivers is a better option than raising the minimum driving age. They are in favor of keeping the minimum driving age the same, suggesting parental involvement and stricter guidelines play a larger role. I am in favor of raising the minimum driving age because it will lower financial burdens, lower car crash rates, and allow more time for teenage brains to develop and mature.
“There are also arguments that young people shouldn 't be in a rush to drink--waiting three more years isn 't much of an inconvenience-and of course, the safety factor” (“Lowering Drinking Age Limit to 18”). Many who are against the whole idea of changing the drinking age to eighteen often have the arguments such as the safety of their loved ones and others. A statistic says that 25,000 lives have been saved because of the drinking age being twenty-one and it continues to prevent tragedies while car crashes are being decreased by 16%. (“Lowering Drinking Age Limit to 18”) Many car crashes are due to drunk driving, and having young adults at the age of eighteen allowed to buy and drink alcohol can lead to new drivers making wrong decisions on the road. Being eighteen is a privilege, and most take advantage of that.
But the teen crime rate has gone up in the past few years higher than ever been. Teens are acting out more trying to show that they don't care about the curfew laws, so people think that making the law even earlier will help. Yes, most teens do their acts of crime around 11pm to 12pm. So if we make the curfew law about 10:30 pm or even 11 pm and we send out the cops at around this time they would most likely catch the teens right in the middle of their act of crime. That would do the most effective objective to lower the teen crime rate, but putting the curfew at 9 pm and your county sends out police to run around town for an hour to find teens to fine.
The main cause of accidents is alcohol, drugs, speeding, aggressive driving, over-compensation, lack of experience, slow reaction time of the driver and distracted driving. Since, self-driving car is a programmed car so it doesn’t affect any of the condition unless software issues. According to the statistics, 40% of the accidents is caused by alcohol and drugs itself. Lyndon states that, “The Eno Center for Transportation found that if ten percent of all cars were self-driving, as many as 211,000 accidents would be prevented annually. Some 1,100 lives would be preserved, and the economic costs of automobile accidents would be reduced by more than $20 billion.” This means that even if 10% of the car is replaced by self-driving car, it can save many accidents from happening.
If we made it a goal to get a literacy rate of 100% in America, there would then be a significant decrease in almost all forms of crime, especially gun violence, because there has been a link established between the level education someone has and their likelihood to commit a crime. I’m not saying educated people don’t commit crimes because they certainly do, but they do so at a much lower rate than the
One will be the promotion of sudo-labour unions; by representing most of its drivers a union might held sufficient collective bargaining power enough to contest similar employment rights without the intervention of law and tribunals. In such a case, most members would be happy to drop prospects like holiday pay in exchange for, say, a minimum contract guarantee or a better pension scheme. Requiring Uber to comply disclosure standards equivalent to public companies also helps. Although Uber’s turbocharged management approach played a notable role in Uber’s $70 billion market value, the lack of clarity aggravated its recent scandals about how the firm treats its employees and drivers. Well past the stage of a startup, going public serves to the advantage to Uber through access to a much larger capital market, while leveling the playing field between the management, creditors, along with actual and potential Uber drivers.
It makes sense to believe that if firearms are harder to possess than there will be less violence involving them. Well, based on research this is not true and we should not strictly control firearms. I tend to agree with this proposal based on the fact that stricter gun control leads to more violence, for example Mexico has some of the strictest laws in the world when concerning gun legislation, yet has 10 homicides per 100,000 people compared to the United States’ 3 homicides per 100,000 people (Gun Control ProCon.org). This shows that stricter laws may not necessarily work for the United States as it is evident that gun violence per capita is much higher in a country with more restrictions, and the problem is most likely going to need a more complex solution. On the other side, there are theories that extremely strict legislation and even outlawing firearms completely would be the most effective solution.
