Have you ever been running late, but didn’t go over the speed limit for fear of getting a ticket? Many other people have had this same thought before. A speeding ticket can make a big impact on one’s life both financially and emotionally. Although many law officials may argue that speed laws are a good thing, in reality, they should be raised or removed because they cause more accidents and more traffic, the laws are outdated, they create higher fatality rates nationwide, the speed limit has little effect on how fast people drive, they make getting to work and important events on time hard to do. Accidents and traffic are two things that people hate dealing with.
With the increase of vehicles being parked alongside the street led to rampant congestion. Due to the limited parking space ,the first come first serve basis was practiced but was criticised by the citizens hence governmental bodies decided to have fairer distribution of parking space (i.e. decision was to vacate the spaces at some specified time and police was instructed to ticket cars and fine them if parked beyond the time limit.) therefore either the person had to choose between removing his car within the time limit or pay the fine .Over parking is the a result of not only deliberate desion but also absentmindedness .The absence of criminal intent is not regarded as an excuse by the law .To stop making an absentminded person violate parking laws the decision bodies decided to increase the fines as higher fines would put pressure on the person and would train him to remember as to remove his car .Metered parking area is the answer to the question on enforcement of the law as it would maximise
Today, with the increase in technological dependency, many car accidents are caused by the use of cellphones while driving. However, if a law restricts people from using their cellphones while driving, the amount of lawbreaking in the United States would increase and people would be more consumed in worrying about not using their phones than actually focusing on driving their best, potentially causing more accidents. I do not support this law and disagree with the idea of illegalizing cellphone use while driving. It has become part of human nature to rely on technological advances for a myriad of things. It would be very difficult for someone to suddenly break the habit of reaching for their phone while driving, if he or she is so dependent on those
I know that people are set in their ways of different races, but times are changing and there are benefits when it comes to having an integrated society. People have to realize that life will go on and you cannot live your life in denial and showing disrespect to the other minorities. I have always wondered which city is the least integrated city in the United States because you cannot talk about something that is so widely known but yet no one wants to talk about the issue. As I began to research this issue the Huffington Post showed that Detroit Michigan is the least integrated city in the US and Priceonomics showed that collectively that Oakland California is the most integrated city. When the data showed me this result I began to look at the why factor and how come these two cities could be so different.
What if urban sprawl is worse than we thought it would be. Urban sprawl is the movement of cities outward into the natural land. People think that urban sprawl is bad for our environment because it leads to more pollution and transportation usage.Other people think that urban sprawl is bad because it disturbs the natural land and animal habitats. Some people even think urban sprawl is good, because we can build more buildings and that means more jobs. While there are many perspectives on urban sprawl, there is one that is convincingly better.
Also, the Virginia state government needs to build more roads because there are too many cars on the roads. The streets are crowded and the traffic is crazy. Mrs. Hirsch has stated that she “gets stuck in traffic many times because there are not enough roads.” The bad road conditions are becoming worse because the state government is not maintaining them. The Virginia Department of Transportation has not effectively dealt with the roads in Chesterfield county in regards to increasing population. Since more roads have not been built, it is a burden to the residents of Chesterfield county.
Many people don’t trust driverless cars for many reasons but the ones that stood out to me the most were on how driverless cars can decrease the amount of job opportunities and how can driverless cars communicate if they’re from different companies. For example, one source listed all the transportation services that can be replaced and greatly affected by driverless cars (Lessmand and Lewis 1). But it’s still not a good reason on why you shouldn 't use driverless cars. Driverless cars do more than replace they save. They save lots of lives and prevent many traffic fatalities.
The advancement of automobiles over time has directly affected the advancement of society as a whole. Society relies intensely and increasing on private motorized transport, vehicles are expected to become safer, more luxurious and powerful. These expectation, however do not take into account of the ensuring consequences such as greater emissions of air pollutants and greater exposure of people to hazardous pollution that causes serious health problems. All the evidence points to the magnitude of these adverse effects on health and to the need to identify solutions that both reduce risks to health and meet the requirement for mobility. This creates a major challenge to the governments, public health organizations, environment authorities and most importantly to the design engineers.
For the past 50 years as this problem worsened the government insisted on establishing new traffic infrastructures as a solution, but the solution for traffic congestion is not to build more roads, or wider roads because additional roads will only result in additional automobiles. Also building structures such as houses will only decrease road sizes of neighborhood roads. The solution to decrease traffic congestion is to upgrade and better our public transit system. A recent study by the TTC shows that the reason why commuters in Toronto and the GTA would sit in traffic over taking public transit is because they believe that the public transit system in the core of downtown and across the GTA is very poor. This notion of beliefs that commuters have of the GTA’s public transit system is true.
The coming era of driver-less vehicles promises a bright future full of safety and ease, yet this is not currently an obtainable goal. Widespread use of autonomous vehicles proves to introduce more negative effects than the promised positive. They won 't make the roads any safer, for they are more likely to misread their surroundings. There are major risks in taking control away from human drivers, and current technology is not yet up to the task. Self-driving cars should be banned in the state of Pennsylvania because they are not as safe as vehicles operated by humans, they put jobs and businesses at risk of being lost, they can 't make ethical decisions, and they use unreliable and unsecured technology.
