Other driver never realizes how big of a threat that they propose to the general public whenever they do not pay attention to what is going on around them. For example, just recently someone had died in a car crash because the other driver veered over into the other lane while they were texting and driving. The weather also plays a large role in how it affects people daily lives while driving. When it rains, snows, or sleets, there are precautionary measures that
In the article “Auto Liberation,” Brent Knutson discusses the need for national speed limits on U.S. interstate highways. Specifically, Knutson argues that speed limits are unnecessary based on his experience driving on German autobahns. He claims that American speed limits violate on the freedoms of Americans. Also, he says that nowadays automobiles are able to travel safely at high speeds, and speed is not the cause of accidents but “[it] combined with incompetence, alcohol, or hazardous conditions is dangerous” (Knutson paragraph 9). Moreover, Knutson states that an “intensive driver-education programs, stringent licensing criteria, and public-service announcement campaigns” can make the Americans drive responsibly on the road and he believes the main reason to repeal speed limit is “driving fast is enjoyable.” Surprisingly, the accident rates declined constantly since the interstate speed limits were increased.
This article talks about some things that parents might never think to talk about to their teens about to make their driving safer. Though certain readers may take this offensive, others may think it is a very big help. Overall, things need to be pointed out to why teens should focus on the road more; why making their driving safe is important to themselves and others. This article examines several surveys and one very personal story told by a man whose son died in a fatal car accident due to extreme speeds on a wet, slick road. What make me question why teens die so often (depending on the severity of the accident) is weren’t they wearing a seatbelt?
Tonya Parnell John Ellen English 101-701 2/3/12 Getting Caught Driving Without a License Everyday people drive without a license, and if caught, the person driving will very likely lead to acquiring fines, tow fees, and being arrested; conversely, it can change a person’s likely future in many ways. Contrary to popular belief, driving is considered a privilege, not a right. Acquiring a ticket for driving without a license is only the beginning. When a person is caught driving without a license it affects their ability to stay employed, in school, or go about life in general. Getting caught driving without a license is embarrassing and disappointing; however, if the driver shows good attitude and be honest, things tend not to go so bad.
After carrying out this simple process, you are able to attain your very own motorcycle license. A big concern with most people about motorcycles is their safety. They assume that driving a motorcycle is way more dangerous than driving a car, but according to the facts, motorcycles aren’t. In Ohio in 2010, 7,285 teenagers died in car crashes, but only 2,071 teenagers died in motorcycle accidents. Another safety issue is the assumption that motorcycles just have too much power.
The Ethical Responsibility of Reckless Driving A reckless driver is one that will drive at high rates of speed going in and out of traffic. Most times they will tailgate other drivers and display levels of hostility to whoever is in their way. This is unacceptable, when others feel they are above the law or that there will is more important than the law or others on the road. Not only does the driver endanger himself but those around him, this behavior is not ethically responsible. As I talk about the different forms of reckless driving let me paint a picture that many might be familiar with.
To sum up the arguments that Walker infers, the first argument is that the death toll in HCMC is high, but the teenagers that ride motorbikes is short. His argument about the importance of length and size underpins his key argument. His second argument seems to be easy, but it's not hard: that enforcing flatulent driving laws and licensing can be a way to squeak out the pip and diminish prohibition of bad driving. Walker's first argument is, to say the least, a conundrum of comic proportions. 50% of the average population, deemed the fairer side, would argue that size and length of the driver is a key factor in determining the seriousness of the issue.
This is due to a number of reasons. One is that teenagers enjoy taking risks. They have overconfidence and are more likely than adults to engage in hazards such as speeding, running red lights, not wearing seat belts, driving while intoxicated, and overall fooling around while behind the wheel. Also, since they are young, they lack experience which includes detecting when something could become potentially harmful and not realizing how severe the consequences are when a crash does occur. In 2005 alone, 4544 teenagers ages 16-19 died of motor vehicle crashes.
Another cause of road rage can be selfishness of a driver. These drivers usually do not care about anything except where they are going and what they are doing. Not obeying driving laws and disreguarding other drivers can cause unsafe driving, which may lead to accidents. Although there are many different effects of road rage, most, if not all, are negative. The most common effect of road rage is car accidents.
Wenda Bonazza, English 101/108 2-18-13 Dangerous Driving Habits Driving can be fun; however, many underestimate the dangers associated with driving a car. Society feels the harsh effects daily, which are related to the lack of responsible drivers on the road today. Many of today’s drivers have dangerous driving habits of being over confident, distracted, and drive while under the influence. Many drivers today are dangerous because they are over confident. It is typical for a person to drive cautiously in the beginning.
