Cheng Zhang 07/11/13 Rewrite Assignment #2 Avoiding Traffic Drivers always feel crazy because of traffic. Sometimes drivers can be stuck in traffic several hours. Whatever drivers drive for work, travelling or others, it will make drivers be very mad, and it also wastes a lot time. How can drivers get off traffic easily? Now more and more new electric devices can report traffic.
The drinking age should NOT be lowered from 21 to 18 years of age. One reason why the legal age for drinking should not be lowered is because it will make roads and highways more dangerous. One way how the roads will be more dangerous is people of eighteen, nineteen and twenty years of age drinking legally results in more intoxicated drivers. With the drinking age lowered, more people will be drinking at public places (restaurants, clubs, bars, etc.) and then they will drive to their home afterwards.
People also eat snacks and other items while they drive to pass the time on long trips. Consequently, many of these drivers get distracted very easily and they may be involved in a traffic accident. Drivers should try to organize themselves and find the time to eat at home or workplace so they can focus while they drive. Secondly, putting on make-up is another dangerous habit that can distract drivers. Women OFTEN spend a certain amount of time putting on make-up, so they have to add that extra amount of time to the time they usually use to get ready to go to work or to go to a special occasion.
I wonder why this warning is not on TV shows like “Jersey Shore” and “Skins.” Obviously people think it is now acceptable to go out underage, hang out with friends, and drink until they pass out. Because of shows like “Jersey Shore” and “Skins,” teenagers feel like they can live a dangerous life Another major cause of drinking underage would be peer pressure. Teenagers are almost expected to drink before they are 21 these days. If they don’t, they could easily be cast out of the social circle and be made fun of. People also are not tolerant of alcohol.
Teens who have jobs wont be able to drive to work, they will have to rely public transportation and their family and friends. Teens who go to college would have to do the same thing. For a female teen it can be very dangerous using public transportation at night, and even for a male, and it isn’t even available everywhere. I think this solution will do nothing but cause more problems than it will solve. Some people may even suggest that students just need better driver’s education classes, or maybe just more classes, or more time behind the wheel.
When I finished working I usually had to call someone to pick me up because at that hour usually no buses were on service and the taxi fee was too expensive. When I wanted to go shopping and I bought many things for the week or a month the shopping became a bigger challenge, because carrying those packages was uncomfortable and exhausted. Also I had more time and more options to buy goods visiting different places and on any time than buying in the same store near the bus stop. Since I have my own car I feel more comfortable and secure because if I have an emergency for example, if I need some medicine in midnight or go to a doctor, I just have to go in my car. If I decided to travel just for vacations or pleasure, I just can decide which place to go and don’t matter at what the time.
Traffic accidents and laws in Cambodia Riding around the city of Phnom Penh can sometimes be challenging. Whether your mode of transportation is a car, tuk tuk, motorbike or a bicycle, the traffic is horrendous, and sharing the road with all types of transportation can be dangerous. Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of death in Cambodia. Speeding and drunk driving are the main causes, and motorbikes are the most common vehicle involved in traffic accidents. The traffic laws in Cambodia are not regularly enforced.
In order to reduce this problem we can give the homeless and the unfortunate a sanitary place to stay. We already have lots of people who die from diseases and thus we don’t need to lose more people because of our government lack of care for the homeless. Every day there’s a crime committed against homeless people. Did you that Sixty-eight percent out of 137 people have been a victim of a violent attack since they've became homeless. Some solutions that we have is to shoot all the homeless people but that would be a bad solution because we would be
The cost of living is also pretty high in metros. In large cities, it is hard to find decent accommodation within one’s budget. Consequently, people are forced to buy ridiculously small homes for huge prices. Those who cannot afford to do so spend the whole of their lives in rented apartments. Worse still, the law and order situation in many big cities is not particularly good making them unsafe for visitors as well as those dwelling in those localities.
