Looking back on it, I don’t regret what happened or that I took so long to start driving again. I will never drive a GMC Envoy again, but the mistake taught me all that I could ever want to know about being in an accident, the intricacies of before, during, and after will forever be ingrained into my brain. And taking a long leave from driving allowed me to regain my confidence, meaning that I was no longer a danger to society when I was behind the
“Good luck on your test today Emily! I know you’ll do good” my mom yelled to me as I impatiently walked out our front door. The day I had been waiting for since I turned 16 was finally here. The day to take my final drive, to have my license in only a few short hours. As I walk to the car, I can feel myself becoming hesitant.
And he was a nice cop instead of getting me on reckless driving excessive speeding and racing in the city and going over the limit 30 miles over limit. But he only got me on the speeding not the other stuff he was such a nice cop. I thanked him so much finally got home. My dad was mad because I got pulled over I texted when I got pulled over. In conclusion I had a lot of fun with my friends and im not going to race in the city again only on the highway.
I remember the day, like it was yesterday. It was the day before my driver’s test. I was thrilled but yet so nervous, that in a couple of hours I would be driving on my own. Little did I know what I was heading for. I practice frequently with my mom’s car, especially on my parallel parking.
“Beep beep!” The sound of my grandma's car made us both rush ourselves outside. At the time, I didn’t know what I was going to expect going to Cape Cod because I had never been there before. All I knew was that the food was good, and you had to dress preppy. Sam and I hopped into the car after squeezing our luggage into the tiny trunk. I asked grandma,” How long is the ride there?”
A study showed that 1053 crashes were caused emergency drivers. If you plan on answering your phone to check if it is an emergency pull of the road because even picking your phone distracts you and can make you cause an accident and just pulling onto the shoulder of the road can save you from crashing. Some even say that because technology has advanced distracted driving isn’t a problem. Based on a poll about if cars came set with phone blocking setting, 55% of the people said they would leave the setting on and 24% said they would turn it off. So that 24% could cause deaths, crashes and injuries.
Mr. Watson loves to take Mercy Watson in his convertible for a car ride, so one Saturday afternoon Mr. Watson and Mercy Watson take the convertible on the road. It takes some convincing to get Mercy Watson out of the driver’s seat, but a promise of hot buttered toast waiting for her
But i had succeed and i was excited for all driving adventured to come with my friends. I felt nothing but excitement. Driving was everything i hoped and anticipated it to be, Except for one exception. One day in June i had just gotten out of school and my little brother had called me to pick him up from the opposite side of the school building, but with an unbearable line traffic i choose to take a lap around town to get to the other side, living in a small town i thought this would take less time then waiting in the line with no patience. I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car.
It was in the car that he discovered he loved Gretchen, “We were in her crappy car and singing, and at the end of the song “White Riot,” the one by the Clash, I realized by the way I was watching her mouth pucker and smile and her eyes blink and wink, we were way more than friends, at least to me,” (Meno 3). Brian is very attentive to detail, especially those that have to do with Gretchen’s mannerisms and appearance. Gretchen is labeled as a fat angry punk by those at her school and other teenagers in the community but when in her car, Brian describes her as a dream girl, “…I noticed she didn’t even wear lipstick
I am going to focus specifically on texting while driving. When one is driving, they are not supposed to put their focus on anything else other than the road. We are all taught this when we learn to drive; however, not everyone abides by every rule. Texting and driving is something people my age don't take seriously, until we witness it first-hand. After doing research for my persuasive speech, I found that 20% of people between the age of 18-21 claim that texting doesn't affect their driving, and 30% of people between the age of 22-30 claim that texting has no impact (Distracted Driving Research 2012).
Then after these questions we ended up on US-31 patrolling for speeders, which is where Deputy Montgomery pulled over two other drivers. When pulling over the first, a woman in a grey Toyota, while originally pulling her over for going 15 miles over the speed limit, he noticed that had improperly displayed her license plate with it being just taped to the rear window of the car. Then after scanning her driver’s license, he noticed that she failed to also change her address as well. After looking over the violations, at first I thought she would receive at ticket with that many warnings, which to my surprise she only received three warnings. The next stop however, had me extremely nervous until we finally let the driver go.
In a split second from looking at her phone, she had clipped the median of the road and her car started to roll, which is when she was ejected 300 feet from the car. For this young lady, her life ended because she was texting while driving, but she could have easily been putting on makeup, opening a soda, or even talking to a passenger and still have been in that fatal car crash. AT&T and many other cell phone companies are putting information out there so people know the dangers of being distracted while driving. States need to start making aware the dangers that come from distracted driving and the effects that it can have on not only the driver but everyone on the road. Having a mandatory class for new drivers about the dangers of distracted driving could possibly help reduce the statistics of
The Department of Transportation has researched why driving at 70 m.p.h. is not only safer, but more reasonable. People aren’t equipped to negotiate unexpected events, like a deer that darts into the road and or other obstructions that may arise. Someone who is speeding excessively is driving recklessly. Every person on the road is in immediate danger because of that driver.
I explained to her what had happened. She was shocked that all of that had happened within the last half hour.Then she wrote me a pass to first hour. In the end it sucked that my truck was totalled. I guess the best way to look at it is I didn’t get a tardy and no one was hurt or seriously injured in the crash. Even though the accident was not my fault, it reminded me and the lady who hit me to always drive cautiously, especially in bad weather such as a snowstorm or trying to stop on ice.
The energy of motion of a car is responsible for the destructiveness of car accidents. It 's the reason parking lot fender benders don 't approach the destructiveness and injury potential of high-speed collisions on the highway. This energy also increases with the square of your speed. Doubling your speed from 30 mph to 60 mph for example, quadruples the destructive potential of a collision. This is why your ability to rapidly slow down is so important.
