Role and Functions of Law LAW/421 October 15, 2012 Dr. Thomas Wilson Introduction Law by definition is created with the intent of providing a framework of rules, regulations, and ethical standards in which people can function and interact together in society. Law provides a system of order in which expectations, rights, and responsibilities are clearly defined, and consequences for non-adherence are explained. The law also sets out a system for resolving disputes by providing a basis for deciding the legal interests and rights of the parties (Melvin, 2011). The intent of law in both society and business are important to understand as it is likely that one or both impacts one’s life on a daily basis and plays a significant role in the success of business. Understanding how one’s actions whether personal or professional can be viewed under the law is imperative and should always be at the forefront of the minds of everyone.
Community policing required special training in mediation and conflict, problem-solving and analysis, community organization, facilitation, communication, network, and linkages, and cross-cultural competency. In early days the crimes committed were done much different than today. Sir Robert Peel was very influential in modern policing by helping to create the modern concept of the police force today. The Metropolitan Police Act of 1829 provided uniforms, organized, paid, and policing similar to those today. Modern American policing follows the English model in Boston and New York.
Cell Phones are a Distraction Distractions while driving take the operator’s attention away from the road. This poses a serious risk to the driver, vehicle occupants, pedestrians, property, and more. Distractions, like using a cell phone while driving can be fatal. Several states have enforced driving laws that restrict and prohibit using the device while driving. Driving requires ones attention at all times and when using a phone the operator is not paying attention to the road but to the screen to read a text, send a message, or to end/ receive a call.
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.
Two, I feel like when cops are on the bus it don’t make a difference. Third I feel like its way more important stuff out in Philadelphia that need cop’s attention other than them riding the bus all day. Those are my concerns about “Transit without
The North was segregated although nowhere near as strongly as the South. The people didn’t react as much as there wasn’t much violence and the protests were calmer which meant that the media had nothing to report about as nothing specifically extreme occurred. The media would pick up on the events in the South as the campaigns were not as calm and violence arose. His tactics did not go to plan and the reaction of the police and public was not what was expected. The Mayor of Chicago knew that they had to stop the campaigns from attracting media attention and to counteract this he ordered the police to avoid using violence and brutality and treat the campaigners with respect.
Whilst studying City Road I have been asked to look at many aspects of how it plays a part in society today. One of the main areas of study has been to examine how material things on City Road affects and sometimes favours the activities of some people over others. (Blakely et al, 2009,) open by presenting the street to us in the Making Social Lives DVD and explains the different people who use City Road such as; motorists, students, pedestrians, local authorities, businesses and consumers and the different attractions and activities on offer. We are asked to look at the street and think of a place just like it that we are familiar with and then look at what stands out on City Road. After doing this you notice that there are a lot of similarities between the two.
Because of the increased number of traffic accidents caused by cell phones, I believe cell phone use should be banned while driving automobiles. Using a cell phone while driving is not only a major distraction, but it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. In a recent study done by Strayer and Johnson, they found that “cell-phone conversations made drivers more likely to miss traffic signals and react more slowly to the signals that they did detect” (Strayer and Drews 128). Awareness of one’s surroundings is vital in safe operation of an automobile. When a driver is talking on a cell phone, the phone conversation “disrupts performance by diverting attention from the external environment associated with the driving task to an engaging context associated with the cell-phone conversation” (Strayer and Drews 129).
Clapham High Street is a vibrant and diverse street with a long history. It became a main thoroughfare when the Romans built a diversion from the main which ran from London to Chichester (claphamhighstreet.co.uk). Clapham High Street is under a mile long and has many shops, bars, restaurants and takeaways. In this essay I will be focusing on how differences are made and remade over time and space, the contrast between the uses of Clapham High Street at day and in the night. I will be also looking at the gentrification of the street and how this can bring about social inequalities.
In order to get your phone to send a text message you have to glance another way for a split second therefore you do not have your full attention on the road you are driving. By glancing at your phone you might not see the car in front of you step on the brakes fast and that may cause you to crash into the car with a drastic force which in that case both of the drivers might get seriously hurt. You may also be glancing into your phone before coming upon a red light and all of a sudden you are right in front of it and with out intending you pass a red light, well here you have some serious things happening. The cars with the green light might crash into you and they are probably going faster than the normal speed limit and once they hit you that accident might even be deadly. Texting and driving has caused many deaths over the world so think twice before doing it.
