Youngsters, specifically boys like to overestimate in the street their capacity to show-off by speeding, and drifting. In this way, they cause the people who are driving in the highway because they distract the people, and they cannot focus in the way. In the article “Should the legal driving age be raised?” the author shows that around 27% of adolescent male drivers smash within their beginning year of having a license. This may be true; however people who are interested in drifting and racing have a specific place to put their interests in there. Also, in the freeway people who are over speeding, they have an alone way to drive.
“So I looked in the mirror and saw a large convertible with the top down overtaking me at 600 miles per hour,” (Barry 572). That car couldn’t and wouldn’t have actually passed him going 600 miles per hour faster than what he was going, but when Barry says this, it just helps the readers visualize how bad of driving the drivers of Miami are. Barry continues to use exaggeration because it is a smart and helpful way to win people over in an
This is one of the reasons they think they can beat the greasers. The socs make the fights because of their money they feel dangerous. Also later in the book when the socs jump ponyboy outside the store, the socs get out of their car thinking how amazing they are to have the car. Thinking of the way they would end Ponyboy. Ponyboy backs them up with not only his bottle but his tone
The drivers still race knowing these risks, but there should be a way to prevent drivers from being severely injured, or fatally wounded. Throughout the years there have been many ideas of different ways to increase the safety factor in all forms of automotive racing. “ As the car came to its horrifically sudden stop, laws of physics kept Adam's head hurtling in the direction of impact--laterally to the right and slightly forward. The only tethers holding his head to his body were his neck muscles and spinal column, which came under enormous stress.” (Hinton). Since Adam Petty’s unfortunate accident many people have had numerous concerns about the safety of all drivers, although Adam Petty’s deaths were definitely not the one to make people ponder the safety.
Over the last twenty-two years, there have been more than 130,000 fatal teen crashes. Though these teenagers are legal, trained drivers, what is a solution to reduce the number of lives lost due to these lethal car crashes? Scientists believe that the solution to reducing the amount of deaths would be to raise the driving age and enforce stricter driving laws. Parents, however, are against raising the driving age as they would have to drive their teenager to the movies for a longer period of time. Thus, the driving age should be raised to twenty due to the maturity of people’s brains and understanding of consequences rather than depending on emotions and desires.
Too many good electricians, plumbers, HVAC, and other skilled-laborers have had their driver’s license suspended for a variety of reasons. Autonomous driving is a real solution to this. And when you take everything autonomous driving has to offer, like lower costs and assisting elderly/disabled people, this technology has so much potential it can literally change the world overnight. And if we’ve learned anything about technology, it’s when it comes at you; it comes at you fast – really fast, only this time nobody’s
According to the article “Offensive Play” by Malcolm Gladwell, who is a famous journalist and author, he explains that “if you drove your car into a wall at twenty-five miles per hour and you weren’t wearing your seat belt, the force of your head hitting the windshield would be around 100 gs” (Gladwell). There are lots of hits that players may gain, which would affect players’ brain directly, not only the big hits, but also a lot of little hits (Gladwell). Therefore, NFL has its responsibility to decrease the risk of getting a concussion such as setting new rules and improving the safety of
Driverless Cars You may have heard of driverless cars since they have been talked about by many people. Though self-driving cars have just begun to get so popular, they have been under development for years. However, no matter how popular they are, driverless cars just might be the most ridiculous thing I ever heard of. To start with, driverless cars focus primarily on pre-programmed information on roads, highways, and other routes. If these routes are changed in some way, driverless cars will become completely lost and will follow the pre-programmed information.
The joke goes: “Racing: because basketball, soccer and baseball only needs one ball.” My racing buddies and I would always drown ourselves in laughter after listening to this old joke. It is a old quote that has become a tradition at my kart racing track. However, behind my mask of laughter and smiles, I actually take this quote more seriously than most do as I believe that the saying is true. Racing is a very dangerous sport and the quote often evokes a nerve wracking feeling as I remind myself of the illogical thing that I do: risking my life for a passion. I am a passionate, thrill seeking and ambitious individual with the undying will to win in anything that I do.
The one thing a sports car is good for is clearing my mind. With my mind going a 100 mph all day it’s nice to just be able to go for a drive listen to the motor rev up and crank the tunes. So with a stressful day of work i needed some time to myself. It was kinda late at night and i was planning on going for a pretty long drive so i drove to Caseys and filled my tank up with fuel. As i'm pumping gas i can hear the numbers ticking and all i can think about is money flying out of my pocket but with the day i hate from people yelling at me telling me to do somethings i just needed my own time so i was okay wasting 20 dollars.
