Further, Texas legislature have been trying to file a bill for smartphones being banned while driving. It is our responsibility as drivers to make sure that we are paying attention to the road at all times. Cell phones are a distraction and as a society it shouldn 't be allowed being used while driving because it causes unavoidable accidents. Representative Tom Craddick said “distracted driving is an epidemic in Texas and we must pass a law to address this life-threatening habit.” Texas is one of the only four states that doesn’t have a statewide law on cell phones and driving. Thousands of people die a year and innocent people are harmed due to this action.
The truth of the matter is it does the opposite and needs to be banned. One reason why Curfew should be eliminated is it targets the wrong people. Experts have said that little criminal activity happens overnight which proves that most of the kids that are being kept inside are not looking to break any laws. In Ferguson and Baltimore police blamed teens for most of the problems but their logs showed that most
Scott started to think of ideas on how to stop distracted driving, and now there is the groove. The groove plugs in under the steering wheel. The groove tells the provider of your phone that the car is on and stops alerts from texts, emails, and social media. It also doesn’t allow people to text or post anything while driving. In an article written by CNN Tibbits says, “When you start driving, you go into the super airplane mode, where the things that would distract you go away” (“Driving While Distracted”).
Throughout this semester, I have had many struggle when it came down to doing an assignment for ENC1102. When it comes down to my growth, I have noticed throughout my papers that various struggle I had in the past, are now not as difficult for me. One of the main examples of this is being able to clearly state my thesis. The thesis statement has always been an issue for me because I never really knew how to get my point across clearly through a thesis statement. When doing the proposal, I had to figure out how to properly state my thesis and have it linked into the rest of the paper.
School safety is an ongoing debate in America and the question of, are schools safe, will never go away but, what could be done to make it a less prominent or less talked about question. Some say that we need more law enforcement in schools, some say we should get rid of guns, and others may say that we should simply make it harder for the wrong kind of people to get guns. I feel that we should have to take a class (much like a hunting or drivers license) and a test annually in order to own guns. Many people would like a world where guns are completely banned or outlawed. While this may work on paper, you can’t deny that if we were to outlaw guns then only criminals would have them thus leaving the non-criminals defenseless.
I have learned and explored quite a lot about my worldview in the past couple weeks. I have been challenged to think about my worldview and try to understand it. I think my worldview is based on my past experiences in life and my faith. The Sire texted was useful to help understand how we get our own worldviews. I also have some strong opinions on the question “how do you know for sure?” All of these piece just combine with others to form my worldview.
City curfews have many advantages and disadvantages. Popular british newspaper, The Guardian published an article about curfews. They talked of an incident where three teenageres were searched, handcuffed, and put in the back of police cars for a ride to the command post. These young adults were not picked up for using drugs nor drinking. Instead, as it turns out, it is illegal in San Diego for anyone under the age of 18 to be out past 10 p.m., therefore, their crime was being out past curfew.

I am a victim to texting while driving but nothing is being done to prevent it in teenagers and young adults. Florida to be specific does not do enough to protect people against distracted driving. The law has been established as a secondary offense instead of being a primary offense. The law only states that drivers must not be caught doing something illegal, like running a red light or swerving across the road, or they will face the penalty of a $30 fine. Followed by the counterclaim of while there is always the option of Florida raising the fine or considering that this offense shouldn’t be secondary, people who are inside of a vehicle also need to reconsider what they are doing while operating heavy machinery.
that the controversy regarding the ban is just a smokescreen as the tobacco industry would have been notified about the law months before it came under public scrutiny. My position on what governments across the world should do in regards to tobacco advertising is that some form of tobacco advertising should be permitted like corporate sponsorships while others should be illegal like TV and magaCase Analysis: Ban on Tobacco Ads by the Government of India The plan by India's government to ban tobacco advertising generated a lot of heated discussions for and against the move, this paper will summarize the arguments for and against the plan.

We Cannot Text and Drive MLA Style Writing Prompt: In “Word to Youth: Texting, Driving Don’t Mix” Larry Copeland illustrates how dangerous it is to text and drive, and interjects the study that reveals data that shows, although people are aware this behavior is dangerous, they continue to text and drive because it is their belief they “can do it safely.” Write an essay that expository explains why individuals cannot text and drive safely.

Body Cameras Don 't Work If They Are Not Worn or Not Turned On After Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, America made it known that we want police officers to wear body cameras. Police Departments responded by saying they want officers to wear body cameras, too. So, if everybody wants the officers to wear body cameras why are there still so many incidents of questionable conduct that are not recorded? According to the Huffington Post, only 2 of the 27 large U.S. cities looked at had all of their officers equipped with body cams. Those who did were Albuquerque, New Mexico, and New Orleans, Louisiana.
Some professors, it was okay with them, but others it was a tag of war. Again, this made me nearly drop those classes. Again, some of the other class which were not science were hard for me to cope with from the beginning of the semester till the end of the semester. One of it was English 12 and History 20. I had to go to the writing center about three times on every assignment that I do.
