For example, some people don’t have car and medical insurance when they get into serious car accidents. This can make a person very stressful and need to pay the debts for a long time. These problems can lead a person to suicide. In addition, teenagers and adults should be careful on using cell phones while driving. If they are careful with it, car accidents will decrease and there will be no financial problems.
People forget why and where they are using their phone and very often make someone else’s life miserable. There are common everyday places where using a cell phone puts others lives in danger or significantly disrupts others and even our important conversations can not be excused. In a car, on a plane, or at school are very important examples of cell phone free zones. Many people believe that there is nothing wrong with having a conversation on the cell phone in a car, but they are wrong. Utah psychologists have made a clear warning against cell phone use while driving and stated: “Drivers on cell phones are as bad as drunks” (no name,Drews, Siegel & Strayer, 2006).
Do you Think the Bloody Code Played An Important Part in Stamping out Highway Robbery Or were there Other Factors Involved? I think that many other factors were involved in stamping out highway robbery. I do not think the Bloody Code was a factor because it was not a sufficient way of catching the criminals, and if the criminals know that they have a large chance of not getting caught then they will most probably go through with the crime. There were no police around to catch them and plenty of other factors; like guns were cheap at the time made it easier for highwaymen to rob people. This is the main reason I do not think the Bloody Code played a part in stamping this out.
This raises the issue of responsibility. In making an ethical judgement, it is not enough to decide what is right to do or what should have been done in a certain case. It is also necessary to decide to what extent one is or was responsible for doing what is right. It is certainly wrong for the driver of a car to crash into another car parked by the side of the road; but if the driver had lost control of his car because he suffered a heart attack or if he didn't see the parked car, he cannot be blamed for the accident, unless he could have avoided the circumstances that led to it. In the case of an individual act, assessing responsibility is relatively straightforward.
This shows us that civilians had to be extremely careful even when they had not broken the law, which would restrict what they could do in public. “Men were fined for striking matches in the street to light their cigarettes or pipes.” This source also tells us that civilians could not carry out every day behaviour while they were in public. This may have made getting on with their lives very difficult and did not enable them to act as they normally would. The overall impact of
I feel that elderly people should not be allowed to drive under certain circumstances. If a person loses the ability to properly operate a motor vehicle based on the functions of their reflexes, memory, visual acuity, flexibility and the ability to focus that person should not be allowed to drive on the open road; putting innocent lives at risk. Having a license to drive would be considered a privilege; and it should not be taken advantage of or abused. I believe its commonly recognized in drivers that turns 70, risk increases greatly and grows higher after turning 85. Elderly drivers are at higher risk of injury and death when involved in a crash because they are least likely to withstand trauma.
Texting while driving has may downfalls that is why it should be illegal. The following reasons are why it should be illegal.Texting while driving may cause serious accidents and it may also cause the death of many innocent people. Texting while driving is also a distraction and also has a lot of consequences. Texting while driving may cause some serious accidents. 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.
A police expert reported to The Telegraph new company that older drivers fail to give way and stay in their lane. He also informed the company that older drivers also misjudge the time and distance when turning in front of other vehicles (Williams, par. 13). An alert driver is someone who is ready to react to what other drivers are doing around them, and when the time comes they adjust their driving accordingly to maintain a safe driving environment. A driver who is not fully aware of how far away their surroundings are should not be on the road.
Should a teenager be a criminal because he/she has stayed out past “curfew”? Many cities have issued curfews for teenagers. They claim that enforcing these curfews will lower the youth crime rate. However, these curfews violate constitutional rights. Teenagers should not have curfews that a city has imposed.
While we cannot eliminate accidents completely, most can be avoided by just being sensible when we use the road. Human error is the major cause of accidents. So we can do something about this horror on the roads. Being smart is to know what we are doing and not to give way to impatience or other emotions. For instance if we drive a car, we must make sure that our car is roadworthy.
