They find that shops, cafes and restaurants along the road provide a sense of community and make people feel safe and welcomed throughout the day, although there seems to be a difference in views on the road after night fall, people tend to feel more insecure of the area, become more fearful of walking to and from the local social organisations, many people avoid walking at all costs and would prefer to get a taxi even for very short journeys. T he road is described as rough by members or the community although it has not always been known like this, many people that have lived in the area a long time are saying they used to be able to walk around happily and with no fear but things have changed, the amount of takeaways, bars and restaurants has caused more violence and crime within the area due to attracting a different crowd to what it used too. The local police officer ‘PC Bob Keohane’ feels differently about the area explaining that the road is safe 24hours a day as long as you have your commonsense. The way that people feel regarding an area can be down to their own imagination, their own perspective, what they see when they walk down the street and their own experiences and the history they have within the area. If you walk down a street and you see graffiti, vandalisms or litter you instantly presume that the area is somewhat rough and begin in your minds to become fearful from what
(Neuman,2005)The environmental aspects of urban consolidation is quite different with in developing the form of urban sprawl. In high density areas, there is only a few natural vegetations,which include trees and grasslands and etc, are found within the buildings, roads, and parking areas. So it makes harder for the inner suburb to have a cleaner environment without planting large amount of vegetations.To sum up, it has both problems and benefits by developing the urban consolidation but the advantages of consolidation is more convincing , making th consolidation form as a more sustainable and livable plan
The lack of competition means that prices are unlikely to fall. Commuters do however have the choice of travelling via another mode of transport, such as by car or coach. However, congestion of the roads during rush hour make it an impractical option, hence, the substitutes for trains are very weak. This means train companies gain even more pricing power as they know that even with higher fairs, consumers are unlikely to switch to substitutes because the substitutes will be very inefficient. Commuters travelling during off-peak periods, between the same two stations are likely to have a much lower fare than those travelling during peak hour periods.
The current P-plate laws are extremely affective in reducing accidents on the road.This is because they deal with many of the dangers p-plate drivers face while driving, including distractions, driving speed, peer pressure and driver safety. To begin with, the current p-plate laws are affective in reducing accidents while driving because they deal with the important issue of distractions. An example of a distraction that is dealt with by the current p-plate laws is mobile phones. Mobile phones cannot be used by p-plate drivers when driving or while the car is moving or stopped but not parked. This helps to stop accidents because it removes distractions from a p-plate driver so they can focus solely on driving.
I believe that the top three environmental issues are; air pollution, lack of green space, and lack of public transportation systems. Nowadays, I see less green space around the houses and in the neighborhood and one of the reasons could be because of compact houses and less out door space. Air pollution is a huge environmental issue because it can lead to poor health. Pollution also affects the environment and looking at the research I realized the forests, US National Wildlife Refuse, and environmental recreation areas are far from the cities and it could be because of the pollution. One of the biggest reasons for pollution is lack of public transportation.
Company Q’s stores were reportedly closed due to their lack in generating profit, being that these stores were in high crime areas raises some concern. Statistics show that the trends are not only concentrated in a residential urban community but are wide spread amongst metropolitan areas. “The narrowing of the gap between city and suburban crime rates underscores that crime is not solely an urban challenge, but metropolitan-wide issue.” (Raphael, 2011) Although these stores were in high crime areas Company Q could have taken steps to improve customer safety. Company Q might have offered security that other local establishments may not have provided. Company Q could have offered parking lot security in conjunction with
The High Street was once the main through road but since the arrival of the bypass in the 20th century it is not as busy as it once was. This produces less traffic throughout the town creating winners by reducing the volume and pollution but with the possible lack of business to local shops,
Fortunately this incident turned out okay and no one was hurt but what about next time? Motorcycles don’t posses many safety features that protect their rider. A car contains seat belts, airbags, four wheels for stability, and more; these are important features that help reduce accident and fatality rates. These issues only add to the main problem which is the drivers themselves, I am talking about both motorcycle rider and automobile driver. These two figures represent a vast majority of those on the streets, they are either inexperienced drivers or to comfortable with their driving habits and lack the attention needed to avoid situations that can arise quickly.
Flatbush Ave could afford to lend its convenience in terms of transportation, and also offers increased options in health care facilities. There are also very limited pharmacies within the neighborhood. Both pharmacies closest on either end of my home are a bus commute away. This is very concerning for seniors or people with chronic conditions which may have an imminent situation that requires immediate pharmaceutical intervention. Even the general populace who might suffer from a pressing cold or a nagging headache may be dissuaded to go to the pharmacy due to the distance.
Many have taken some responsibility upon themselves to contribute. In the city’s efforts of setting up places like the Time Center and creating awareness through fundraisers, people like the man on the bus have a better chance to become independent. The supporting community gives hope to the people who are often at the lowest points in their life and it keeps many from reverting to the streets. I would support the statement that the campus town here has indeed fostered affective ways for the homeless to be productive (instead of just sitting on the streets begging for money.) Although no system can be perfect in confronting this still a sad and serious issue, the campus town has truly helped create a more encouraging
