Unsafe Behind the Wheel

I believe that states should place more driving restrictions for teens that are under twenty-one because car crashes lead to death for teenagers. Crashes are the main causes for deaths because teenagers like to show off their speed. This happens a lot because teenagers don’t take driving seriously and think it’s cool to text and drive and also to go over the speed limit just to show off to their friends. Thing is, as soon as American teens get their driver’s license they go for a spin with as many friends as can cram into the car. Also teenagers like to do stupid things like do drugs while driving or the worst case scenario drinking and driving. 60% of all teen deaths in car accidents are alcohol related. That is saying about every drunk driving there is eight teenagers are killed every day.
Most people can say to teenagers to stop texting and driving and stop drinking and driving and show them what happens to them when they do these kinds of things but most teenagers don’t get it until someone real close to them gets either injured or killed by texting and driving or drinking and driving. Many states are telling teenage drivers that they can’t even drive with another teenager in the car when they get there driver’s license because it is too cautious for them to drive with someone else when you don’t know if they are going to be reckless and drive like a crazy man or be responsible and drive like an adult.
Driving is a kid’s dream when they grow up they want to be like there big brother or sister or even their parents. But if that older brother or sister is being stupid behind the wheel there little brother or sister will never get the chance to drive and do other sorts of things when they grow up. Being safe behind the wheel can save many lives, especially yours because once that day will come that you will lose a family member or a…...

Wheels to the Freedom

...The wheels of freedom The bicycle was the rhythm of life for the people of china. Bicycles were used as means of transport. It is mentioned in the article that “China is a country with only few thousand privately owned cars, but on the other hand they have 220 million bicycles- vastly more than any other nation”. China did have buses, subway, train, and taxi to transport but mostly people prefer to paddle (ride their bicycle) to work, school or, anywhere they go. “Bicyclist carried messages from university to university”. Importance of bicycle in China. On the other hand North Korea the capital of China banned the usage of bicycle. Importance of bicycle in China. As I mentioned above, that China is the country with the highest bicycle in the nation (220 million) and with only few thousand privately owned cars. Most of the population in china preferred to ride their bicycle mostly everywhere. As for example, Martial artists rode to practice with swords strapped to their bicycles. Women in jet-black business suits pedaled their daughters to school. Boys fished beside parked bicycles at placid lakes. Bakers in white toques headed for work on transport tricycles. In U.S.A we have car companies like BMW, AUDI, Honda, Toyota, but on the other hand Chinese people have brand names in bicycle. Even professors commute on bicycle. I was amazed when I read that people even travel 22 to 50 mile one-way. In China when the prohibition was going on people had no choice but to try...

Cell Phones and Car(Unsafe Combination

...Cell Phones and Cars are an Unsafe Combination A couple were crossing the street when bam! A car ran a red light and struck them. The driver was talking on his cell phone. How would you feel if that was your friend or family member, that was struck down by a driver; who was more concerned with a conversation on a cell phone, than watching the road? According to Reuters, from 2001 to 2007, drivers, who were either texting or talking on their cell phone, killed an estimated 16,000 people. I, for one, think it’s a shame that so many deaths happened in that small amount of time because of something so careless. Cell phone use anywhere can be distracting, but driving while using your cell phone is potentially life threatening. More people would benefit by acknowledging this sad truth. Today I’m going to give my argument on why cell phone use while driving needs to be banned. A few reasons, but not all are; using a cell phone takes the driver's attention away from driving, causes you to be impaired both mentally, as well as physically, and can cause accidents or even death. A driver’s attention is taken away from driving when they use their cell phone. That’s a proven fact. Statistics, on the Official US government website for distracted driving, show that drivers talking on cell phones were eighteen percent slower to react to break lights. If that statistic isn’t scary enough for you, they also give one more that definitely got my attention. Sending and receiving texts takes...

The Medicine Wheel

...The Medicine Wheel: A Guide to Achieving Personal Goals in Life One of the important subjects that is of great interest in Aboriginal Studies is the Medicine Wheel; how it is used as a guide for personal decision making and actions through life, particularly to achieving our personal goals. What the Medicine Wheel is all about and how it helps guide us to a more fulfilling life is a question most of us wonder. The Medicine Wheel is a crucial element of First Nation’s culture. It is a powerful symbol of the aboriginal people’s spirituality. It is the essence of their way of life, a key to understanding the universe, and a guide in which an individual can reach wholeness. It provides framework for growth and direction in one’s life (Roberts, Harper, Bull, & Heideman-Provost, 1998). “The Medicine Wheel symbolizes the interconnection of all life, the various cycles of nature, and how life represents a circular journey” (Traditional Aboriginal Medicine, 2009). The Medicine Wheel as a visual symbol is an effective tool for personal development (Native American Medicine Wheel, 2011). Based on my learning from the class discussions and presentations, I found this project very interesting and inspiring. I found it to be an important guide towards attaining success. In this paper is my vision of what a medicine wheel would be like and how I connect the medicine wheel ideas to my outlook, and to realizing my goals in life. ...

Only Mature Kids Behind the Wheel, Please!

...Anelith Ortega Only mature kids behind the wheel, please! Wherever you go, everyone is talking about it. News, social media channels, supermarkets, even in the elevator. There is a discussion about the best age to put a child behind the wheel. Some people believe that age should be below 16 years old. Others think it should be higher and another group believes it should stay the same . With all the external influences the children receive through television, video games and, internet, where breaking the rule is "cool ", kids are not ready to take such a serious responsibility as it is driving a car at 14 years old. It is not right to generalize and say that children are irresponsibly and they just do what they want without any rules. But the reality is that some children behave incorrectly and may behave the same way behind the wheel. A good example is the access that children have to violent video games, despite all restrictions for sale. Many of these video games encourage the user to manage aggressively and at high speed to achieve the goal set in the game and also win. By transferring this situation in real life, any child who does not have the enough maturity, may believe that driving a vehicle in the same way that the video game, is the right way. Furthermore, although parents would pass to a more comfortable state where no longer have to take the kids to school, it is also true that the level of stress increases, for different reasons. First, although......

The Wheel

...The Wheel The wheel is one of humanity’s greatest technological innovations from ancient times. Although it has gone through many different design changes over the years, its original purpose has remained the same. The purpose would be that of transportation. Who would have thought that the use of wooden wheels as a means of transport by the Sumerians back around 3200 B.C., would lead to using rubber tires on cars to help us get around today? The wheel, as we know it today, has survived throughout the centuries and many civilizations to become one of those creations that many people now take for granted. The beginnings of the wheel took place in Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia was located between the Tigris and the Nile rivers. The Sumerians were the people who inhabited this fertile land around 3200 B.C. Back then they hauled things by hand or either on their backs and heads. Someone came up with the idea to put the heavy objects on logs to roll them along. Later they added a runner to this and then placed the logs underneath it. The heavy object was then placed on top of the runner, which made transporting it even easier. This became known as a sledge. The Sumerians began to notice that over time the roller started developing grooves in it. The grooves also allowed for a greater distance of transport before another log had to be placed under the sledge. The next thing they did was to cut away the wood in between the grooves to create what we now call an......

The Wheel

...Invention Essay INVENTION OF THE WHEEL INTRODUCTION: This assignment is about the wheel. I believe it is the most important to come out of Ancient history. The following are detail of when the wheel is invented, how it was invented, why it was invented, what it was used for in the past and today, and its importance. ARGUEMENTS: When your invention was first made and how it was invented? Wikipedia (2010) stated according to archaeologists, the wheel was probably invented in around 8,000 B.C. in Asia. The oldest wheel known was discovered in Mesopotamia around 3500 BC. The early wheels were simple wooden disks with a hole for the axle. Ricky David (2009) stated that the wheel was created by 2 young male adults. It was said that they were rolling stones down a hill to see which one went faster. Then they found out that the stones that were round went faster. ThinkQuest (2000) researched that wheel were made by the Sumerians. It was made of planks of wood joined together. Firstly, a man placed rollers beneath heavy objects so that they could be moved easily. Then they improved it so it would be easy to load and drag. This was the invention of the sledge. After that they soon discovered that these deep grooves actually allowed the sledge to advance a greater distance before the next roller was needed to come on. Thus the rollers were changed into wheels. The wheel was furthered improved on later by the Egyptians, who made wheels with spokes, which could be......

Dangerous Behind the Wheel

...Dangerous Behind the Wheel As a husband and a father, the safety of my family is perhaps one of the most important things in my life. Every time I get in a vehicle, I ensure everyone has his or her seatbelt on and I make it a point to be as safe as I can be when I drive. Unfortunately, there are certain things that even I cannot control. Imagine something so dangerous that it can take away everything and/or everyone you have in mere seconds, regardless of how safe you are. No matter what safety precautions anyone has taken, statistics show that teenagers, more specifically, sixteen year olds, are the most dangerous drivers on the road. Not only are they a danger to themselves, but even more frighteningly, they are a danger everyone around them. Because of this, I believe the driving age limit should be raised to eighteen and sixteen year olds should not be given a “graduated” driver’s license. Driving is a task that requires the utmost attention to detail. Multitasking is perhaps one of the most important things that any driver has to do when he or she gets behind the wheel. You have to pay attention to your speed, other drivers, pedestrians, road conditions, and much more. Because teenagers get distracted so easily, they are often poor at multitasking. This, in addition to the complexities of driving, makes teenagers, specifically sixteen year olds, the most dangerous drivers on the road. In fact, motor vehicle accidents are the number one killer of......

Regulating Cell Phones Behind the Wheel

...Regulating Cell Phones Behind the Wheel When a cell phone goes off in a classroom or at a movie theater, we are irritated, but at least our lives are not endangered. When we are on the road, however, irresponsible cell phone users are more than irritating: They are putting our lives at risk. As of 2008, there were about ninety million cell phone users in the United States, with 60% of them using their phones while on the road (Sundeen 1). Many of us have witnessed drivers so distracted by dialing and chatting that they resemble drunk drivers, weaving between lanes, for example, or nearly running down pedestrians in crosswalks. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2012 driver distraction was the cause of 18 percent of all fatal crashes – with 3,328 people killed – and crashes resulting in an injury – with 42,100 people wounded. These distractions could include fiddling with the radio, smoking, eating, putting on makeup, shaving, and so on. There is no clear evidence of a direct link between cell phone use and traffic accidents. These deaths raise the question whether cell phone use while driving is justifiable. A number of states have outlawed handheld cell phone use while driving, or have banned cell phone use for drivers because they believe that cell phones impair drivers by distracting them. A ban is unwise at this time because vehicular cell phone use provides substantial personal and societal benefits. Instead of banning cell phone use,......

Ferris Wheel

...some time in history someone thought that people would enjoy this. That person who invented the Ferris wheel must have been a genius with this being the first of these terrifying machines. For the sake of the terrified people, the Ferris wheel ride would hope to have a very smoothly transition. The Ferris wheel ride outside of the Staten Island mall was going to be thrilling. The first experience on the carnival ride for the people that haven’t seen or rid the Ferris wheel before at a local fair was at the Staten Island mall. Staying still at the entrance, some of the kids has small hands which were held firmly by a larger hand belonging to a much more confidant mom or dad, but it will still be a first time experience for them and others. The flashing lights, the melody of circuited music and screaming had all the people gawking at anything and everything that they saw happened upon them. But what caught and kept the people attention was the Ferris wheel that seemed to torture their occupants every time ridden. People that were looking ahead at the horizon; the evil Ferris wheel ride was getting bigger and bigger every time you took a step. People waiting at the line felt swallowed from the fear deep inside of them. But unluckily the ride started out of nowhere and people are already screaming their lungs out and some were watching them, speechless. The Ferris wheel was very huge, smoky hot, noisy and a lot frightening from a close angle. Since that initial......

The Unsafe Culture of Bp

...The Unsafe Culture of BP The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been called the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. The British Petroleum Company (BP) gulf spill started in April of 2010, and was first contained in July of 2010; it took the company 2 months to actually start the process of containing the spill. The Associated Press and The New York Times, reported that a total of 94 to 184 million gallons of oil were unleashed on the shores off the Gulf. This disaster has caused controversial topics to arise as to what the BP company is doing in preventing these disasters or if they are even taking any precaution to that notion. Critics say that BP has had a very bad track record when it comes to safety. It is a risky company that has grown too fast. They have had accidents like the one of BP’s most troubled refineries, which lies, in the State of Texas, which also had its fair share of explosions. BP now faces the largest liabilities in corporate history. All of what BP seems to be doing is shutting their workers mouths with money they cannot refuse but money that has no affect on the company’s profits. BP must change their culture of deadly accidents, disastrous oil spills, and countless safety violations. The Texas BP refinery had an “accident” in 2005 where 15 people died in an explosion and fire, 170 others where injured. Afterwards there were charges that BP management valued profits more than safety. BP acquired the 12,000-acre refinery in 1999 as part......
