By being too aggressive, it leads officers to become more suspicious of some people even though they may not deserve it, and can to lead to false arrests or abuse.
This is the energy that takes place as the “car” is falling down the hill. This is calculated through the formula: KE = 0.5 x mass x speed2  This means that the kinetic energy increases as the speed increases, and vice versa. Therefore, this means the higher the kinetic energy, the faster the “car”. We can actually be extremely specific in terms of this relationship. We know that as the mass doubles, the KE doubles, but as the speed doubles, the KE quadruples .
One type of distraction that is becoming a growing popularity is driving while texting or talking on a cell phone. Not only is this dangerous, but it is illegal.

I also think the technology exists to boost up the miles per gallon (mpg) a car can have. I believe this because if we have the technology to clone animals and reproduce children without mothers, than we should have the technology to boost our cars mpg. The benefit of a car with a higher mpg will in turn produce a lower carbon emission rating, which means cleaner air with less carbon dioxide. Driving a car is the most common air polluting act a human commits. They commit this on a daily basis with little knowledge of it.
There are many things that cause global warming but one of the primary causes is cars and trucks on the road every day and all day and never ceases. It has been over a century gasoline powered cars have made it easy for us to get around but it's time for a change with the growing need of supply and demand, we need to start finding other resources to power our vehicles, therefore, is natural gas powered cars better than hybrid cars? By driving more efficient vehicles, oil imports can be cut, money can be saved, jobs can be created, and it will help with global warming. With gas prices on the rise up, wouldn't you want to save money just by using more efficient cars, such as, the hybrid or the electric automobiles? Hybrid electric vehicles combined with more than one power source offer additional flexibility to improve the fuel economy and to reduce pollutant emissions.
