Johnson gives statistics showing that talking on a cell phone is as dangerous as driving drunk. Moreover, she points out the increasing number of accidents caused by cell phone use. Her conclusion is that we need to personally decide not to use a cell phone while driving and that we need to educate our friends and family to give up using cell phones while driving too. I agree with Jones that cell phones are dangerous and that we should personally choose to not use one while driving; however, I’d go further than Jones by adding that we need to have laws that prohibit anyone from using cell phones in
On the other hand, a fun fact is if I spit on the streets, it is okay. Apparently, that is not considered littering in Boston. It is illegal in some states though, or so I heard. So not everyone is like me, we are all individuals. The person behind me on the streets could have littered and purposely did not use the trashcan.
Criminals usually plan out and act upon the scenario in a time when they’re not being followed and during the scenario they are not available; Wiggims was nowhere to be heard of or seen, therefore he is a suspect. As the Chief you are authorized to be in control of society, protect it and follow the higher authorization person(s). The Mayor of Springfield, Quimby, told the Police to “take out Burns,” and clearly chief Wiggims is once against suspected because of his authority as a police offer. The little time before and after the shooting, Chief Wiggims told Jimbo Jones to stay away from the statue near the parking lot (where Mr.Burns was shot near the Simpsons car) because he was loitering and during that time it can be safely assumed that Wiggims had committed the crime, got rid of evidence (jimbo Jones) and may have had some cause to leave bloodstains on the Simpsons car. After all the person who was not at the shooting, and was responsible for the case being Wiggims would be a great idea due to the authority(Chief Wiggims), power(Quimby) and the gun that had made the sound when shot.
In a patronising and condescending letter to the editor G J Wowser egotistically contends that the drink driving age should be changed to twenty-one. G J Wowser is critical of young drivers and aims to portray them as ‘irresponsible and careless’. Wowser positions the reader to think of teenagers as ‘irresponsible’ and incapable of drinking and driving by twenty-one. This can be identified in his description of young people as ‘tearaways’. This portrays Wowser’s bitter view on younger drivers and positions the audience to think all young people are irresponsible and ineligible to be driving on our roads.
People believe that putting cameras on poles and taking pictures will not stop these kinds of accidents. In synopsis, traffic light cameras need to be placed at all major intersections because they prevent accidents,help with the county revenue, and provide extra assistance for the law enforcement. There are concerns from the public with red light cameras, such as the driver of the car can not be positively identified and they increase accidents instead of reducing them. However, there will be more positive reinforcement than negative by providing more traffic light cameras to major intersections. Overall, they will not only improve road safety, they will also save
The white and black people couldn’t hang out together, sit together, and drink out of the same drinking fountain. An example would be Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks refused to move when sitting in the front of a bus when she actually needed to be sitting in the back of the bus. Martin Luther King didn’t like the way it was going. He stepped up and spoke for what he thought was right.
Back during the Scarlett Letter, townspeople didn’t have that option due to the lack of technology. Instead, what they would do to inform citizens of the crime is walk around and verbally invite them to the scaffold, and let them witness from there. If an individual wasn’t able to attend, they would have to find out a different way. Public awareness wasn’t broad back then, unlike today where we have all the technology, and even the simplest things to inform
Now, in the past few years, some cities and states have started banning smoking in all public places even, in some cases, bars.  People worry about what smoking does to them, well I'm here to say that cars produce more harmful chemicals into the air then smoking does. We cannot ban everything just because we disagree with it. As for the non-smokers worrying about their health as they go to the bar and drink, you will not be hurt by a night in a Smokey room just as you will not harm your body forever by a night of a few drinks. 8 Senator Rodney Ellis; “A smoke-free Texas?” State senator proposes statewide smoking ban, January 18, 2007, Austin American-statesman.
These drivers are paying less attention to the road and spending less time controlling their vehicle. While it is difficult to enforce against this type of behavior, law enforcement must take steps to reinforce the message that driving is a full-time task. Departments should apply the community policing technique of scanning, analyzing, responding, and assessing strategies to identify innovative ways to reduce the number of collisions caused by fatigue and inattention. Departments with highway rest areas in their jurisdictions also need to have patrol units check these locations frequently and maintain a high police presence so that motorists feel that it is safe to stop and take a rest. All too often, motorists have come to regard rest areas as dangerous places to stop and sleep, traveling on under fatigue rather than resting for a safe
