- 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, ...

- As I Stand Near The Drivers Door, I Begin To Notice The True Beauty Of A - 905 words
As I stand near the drivers door, I begin to notice the true beauty of a Lambourghini. All of the little features that you never really notice suddenly appear out of the blue and astound me. Every little nook and cranny is noticeable, as if I was looking through a magnifying glass. It is truly beautiful. I am about two to three feet away from the door due to the experience of having one of the doors swing upward and knock me out cold. The window is open. The car is a spotless white pearl color with a black trim. I can see that the single windshield wipers are a little upward from their usual off position, as if it were raining earlier. OK, so I forgot to shut them off. The plush cherry red i ...

- Car Crashes - 1,548 words
Car Crashes Two cars are travelling down a highway at 100 km/h in opposite directions. Both drivers are tired from driving all day and cross over the yellow line and hit head on. Crash! The driver of car A has remained inside the car and has broken ribs due to hitting the steering wheel. The driver of car B however is on the hood of car A and is pronounced dead at the scene, cause of death, a severe case of disobeying the laws of physics. Although both cars were heading at the same velocity one driver ended up dead while another survived. This seems like a complicated and hard thing to explain and to the untrained person it may seem that driver A just had plain luck on his side however this ...

- Culture Awareness - 1,454 words
Culture Awareness I was planning to take a leisurely trip this summer, but now I think I'll have to change my plans. Instead I'll probably have to take a crash course in Sensitivity for the Culturally Unaware. Maybe it's because I grew up in Chicago, perhaps the most culturally diverse city in the country. Maybe it's because I have a mulatto niece and nephew. Maybe it's because my cousin's last name is now Hernandez. Maybe it's because my wife's cousin is a Native American. Or maybe it's because we Poles have borne the brunt of more jokes than any other ethnic group, but all this time I thought I was aware of other cultures and the feelings of members of other ethnic groups and minorities. N ...

- Fahrenheit 451 - 1,145 words
Fahrenheit 451 The society in Fahrenheit 451 has many similarities along with many differences of our modern day American society. Some of the similarities of our society and the society in Fahrenheit 451 are that in our society, which is becoming more and more technologically advanced, individuals are demanding things to become faster and faster. As with the society in Fahrenheit 451, everything is fast and readily available at the touch of a fingertip. Another similarity in our society and the society of Fahrenheit 451 is that things that may have been considered dangerous and rare, such as suicide and murder, is becoming an "everyday thing" or a usual happening in our society, and was eve ...

- 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, ...

- Motorcycles, A Mechanized Version Of A Horse Some May Say, Were First Created In The Early 1900s Scott, P7 Harley Davidson, A - 981 words
Motorcycles, a mechanized version of a horse some may say, were first created in the early 1900s. (Scott, p.7) Harley Davidson, a family run business for over 65 years, produced one of the first American made motorcycles. Through the years of boom and bust Harley Davidson was known exclusively as the builder of large, air-cooled V-twin engines, powering mostly large, heavyweight motorcycles. (Rafferty, p.8) Harley still remains the foundation of motorcycles today. The first prototype Harley-Davidson was developed in 1901 by both William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson. Throughout their years of building different models they worked on improving the Harley piece by piece and came out with a bik ...

- Road Safety - 1,274 words
Road Safety ROAD SAFETY It has been statistically shown that during the past five years, the number of fatalities and injuries associated with road accidents are steadily increasing. Fatalities due to road incidents have now reached a grand total of 181 (1999), significantly greater than its total, five years ago, in 1995, which was 105. Since 1995, road deaths have increased by an average of 14 people per year. This type of carnage impedes the positive growth of our country and needs to be stopped. I think the most important factor that needs to be looked at in our goal to sustainable development is social responsibility. That is, drivers need to have a responsible attitude and a level of m ...

- 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 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 ...
