She then goes on to bring out statistics of how many crashes have occurred (5.89% per 100 crashes) and the amount of children that have died due to these death machines, in an attempt to persuade the audience to agree to her idea of getting the cars banned. Masters then tells the story of “five-year-old Bethany” who was killed in the driveway of her school to show to the audience how dangerous the cars are in an attempt to get the audience to agree with her opinion. 4WD are not environmentally friendly. Masters mentions a study done by “Queensland University of technology’s centre for accident research and road safety” to display to the audience that it’s not just her opinion this article is based on but that of an expert, to encourage them to view these cars the same way she does, and some others do. She then states that due to their greater size the 4WDs have a “greater fuel consumption, more greenhouse gas emissions and higher operating costs” showing another way the cats impact the wellbeing of many in a negative way in the hopes of persuading the audience to see the negative impacts of these types of cars and make a move to ban them.
To me it is dangerous to use your head and neck to ram someone in order to knock them down. People think that racing is dangerous because of the speeds, look at how many football players were paralyzed this year and even killed compared to racing. Race cars are actually way safer than regular street cars. Now that I have given my opinion, I hope I can make a point without sounding rude or ignorant. My feelings are strong for racing like theirs is for other sports.

Nicholas Lavoie 10/26/13 Criminology NYC Bikers vs. Range Rover (Group 2) On September 29, 2013, on New York City's Henry Hudson Parkway, a sport utility vehicle (SUV) driven by motorist Alexian Lien was involved in a vehicular accident with motorcyclist Christopher Cruz.

Our memory in effect shapes our reality and this is the basis of Elizabeth Loftus’ research. In her experiment she selected a random assortment of people and subjected them to footage of a car crash. She then asked a variety of questions relating to the speed of the vehicles before the incident. From this, Loftus concluded that the speed the participant thought the vehicle was going changed depending on the way the question was phrased. For example, when she asked, “how fast was the car going when the two cars smashed?” the participants gave a much higher speed than when the question was phrased, “how fast was the car going when the two cars collided?” This research created a lot of skepticism over the accuracy of eyewitness accounts and since then DNA testing has found a lot of convicted felons to be innocent.
Many situations can test the strength of one’s morality. In the middle of a deep moral conflict a person becomes looks inward and follows their intuition, hoping that it will guide them towards the morally correct decision.

I ran into the house and grabbed my baby and started to pray. Then the shots stopped, and we heard a truck start up in the field across from the house. It was speeding through the field and pulled onto the road and proceeds to yell out racist slurs as they speed away. Luckily no one at the cookout was harmed. Finally, a police officer showed up and as we were standing outside telling the officer about the episode that had just happened gun shots rang out for a second time and the policeman ran, jumped in his car and pulled off speeding with his lights on.
