  • Speed Limit - 1,859 words
    Speed Limit Cause and Effect Second Rewrite Picture yourself in my shoes. I'm cruising down the Montana intrastate system. Being young and stupid I am going at the unreasonably fast speed of just over 80mph. I am on a road that I travel around five times a month. I know the road well, and I feel safe at 80 mph. I have no fears, even if I do see a cop. I wouldn't get pulled over because there is no speed limit*. I coolly glance in my rear view mirror to see a car quickly approaching me. Then before I know it, the car has passed me like I'm not even moving. Naturally I look to see why they are in such a hurry, but I can't tell because they are moving to fast. The last thing I see before they a ...

  • The Speed Limit - 908 words
    The Speed Limit Under current federal law there is no speed limit. The federal government left the task of setting speed limits up to each individual state. The majority of state speed limits went from 55mph and 65mph to 60mph and 75mph respectively. The problem is, this isn't fast enough. There should be no speed limit in the state of Washington. In this day of age, people want things as fast as possible. Look at computers and cars and even TV dinners: the faster the better. The same is true on the road. People need to get to places and they want to get there fast. The majority of cars on the road today have the ability to drive much faster than the posted speed limit and many cars can doub ...

  • Cause And Effect: Top Gun - 482 words
    Cause And Effect: Top Gun The popular movie Top Gun coined a phrase that reads, I feel the need, the need for speed. Many drivers today would agree with that phrase. Speeding is one of the most common ways that people break the law. When people break the law there are unpleasant consequences. A speeding ticket is an effective form of discipline: paying for a ticket, traffic school, and higher insurance rates. Paying for a speeding ticket is an unpleasant experience. A ticket can be outrageously expensive depending on how fast you were speeding. Some states charge ten to twenty dollars per mile an hour over the speed limit. The officer assigns you a day to appear in court, if you choose to fi ...

    Emile Durkheim Diane Luebbering Sociological Theory Emile Durkheim Essay Many different people, from many different backgrounds can define society in many different ways.

    English 152 Tue. 6:30-9:40 Police Brutality What is police brutality? It is "excessive assault" on citizens with minor infractions, particularly among minorities.

  • Looking Out The Window - 1,565 words
    Looking Out The Window Looking out the window, a sign on the side of the road reads, speed limit 25. I think it should be much higher, but I suppose residents of the road want to get out of their driveways without being smashed by a speeding car. I look down at the dashboard, which is covered with beer cans (theres no bottles because they always end up finding their way out the window and onto signs and other objects), various coins, and assortments of waste products. Directing my gaze away from the hideous sight of the trash, my eyes wander away and focus in on my speedometer. The pretty little numbers that encircle it go from 0 to 100. As my eyes wander, so does my mind. I think to myself, ...

  • Respect - 392 words
    Respect It is something everyone wants, not many have, and few want to give. Most people would appreciate "just a little bit," and most should give just that. Unfortunately, a lot of the time, this does not happen. Perhaps this is because the concept of respect is not understood. What exactly is respect? The dictionary defines it as an act of giving particular attention or high or special regard. This does not explain what it is; it only outlines what it may be. In general, though, respect can be broken down into three main forms. The first is the respect of others. "Others" includes your peers, teachers, parents, and everyone else. It is adding a maam or sir to the end of a sentence. It is ...

  • Should Racist Speech Enjoy Protection Under The First Amendment - 1,496 words
    Should Racist Speech Enjoy Protection under the First Amendment Prejudice and racial stereotyping are two of this country's greatest problems today. Many people in our society have tried to find ways to eliminate or at least limit these types of behavior, but have met with very limited, if any, success. Because of the complex nature of racism and racist acts, coupled with the fact the first amendment prohibits the government from limiting the publics' right to free expression and speech, the Federal government has been ineffective in eliminating racist actions that pervade our society. State governments and institutions have attempted to set up their own laws condemning such actions, but hav ...

  • Speed Limits - 470 words
    Speed Limits Imagine driving on I-75 as cars race by you at a blink of an eye. You are driving 60 miles per hour, the speed limit; they must be doing 100 miles per hour or more. This is not an illusion; this is the reality of driving on a highway. Believe it, it happens everyday. Cars race down the road at uncontrollable speeds that cause tickets, accidents, and sadly death. Speed limits are a must for traffic control, for safety in neighborhoods and for avoidance of collisions. Traffic control establishes a set of rules and regulations that people rely on to help avoid collisions and other hazards. With almost 160 million motorists and 3.8 million miles of public roads in the United States, ...

People on both sides of the issue argue endlessly to gain further support for their movements. While opponents of capital punishment are quick to point out that the United States remains one of the few Western countries that continues to support the death penalty, Americans are also more likely to encounter violent crime than citizens of other countries (Brownlee 31). Justice mandates that criminals receive what they deserve . The punishment must fit the crime. If a buglar deserves imprisonment, then a murderer deserves death (Winters 168). The death penalty is necessary and ...

  • The Effect Of Highspeed Trains On Society - 1,180 words
    The Effect Of Highspeed Trains On Society A major reason in favor of the construction of high-speed trains in America is to relieve airways and traffic congestion. First, delays at airports are costly.
