In this day in age everyone is driving from 5 to 50. Now what does that mean? It means that now a days kids are technically learning to drive through video games or go carting. Because driving has become so second nature to most of us we believe that we can multitask by texting, letting ourselves become distracted, or eating and driving. Why be reckless when we don’t have to be.
An extreme number of research and data have pointed out that teens are not equipped with safe driving skills. These numbers have lead to countless arguments between teens and adults. All though teens are more interested in their phone then a car they still have a desire to get onto the road. The car offers an immense amount of self conscious and maturity to a teen. This is one of the main points as to why teens are so eager to get out on the road as soon as possible. If and when they do get on the road they look right past the consequences that may occur with driving at such a young age. Without a doubt teenage drivers are very inexperienced when it comes to their first trips on the road because the only prior training they can get is practice
One feasible solution to reduce the amount of teenage motor vehicle accidents is to provide a way for youth to gain life-like experience driving with various, unexpected scenarios. One of the two biggest causes of accidents among adolescents is speeding, which exacerbates swerves and does not allow for enough reaction time. “Teens are more likely than older drivers to speed and allow shorter headways (the distance from the front of one vehicle to the front of the next)” (Singer.) Creating a simulation machine, much resembling a race car driving video game/chair found in many arcades, complete with speed limits and road signs, would help to equip young drivers for the dangers that may arise on real roads. The simulation could be programmed to come up with different obstacles that would require the user to react in whatever way he or she sees fit. These obstacles could be life threatening if presented on a physical road, which is why a simulator has such a high value; for instance, an eighteen wheeler barreling at a car in
The first cartoon I will be talking about is Family Guy. Family Guy plays a huge role in pop culture .Over the years Family Guy has
This is just a tiny bit of what happens in the show. This show is very negative on children and they way they will interact with other in public. They also make fun of amputees, this can be very harmful to the way children interact with other kids that have this kind of problem example Joe is Peter Griffins neighbour and there is an episode that says no legs no service.
SpongeBob SquarePants should be the archetype for synergistic corporate product placement. With SpongeBob’s insurgence into popular culture, there have been similar synergistic trends of product placement. Support for this notion is found through looking back to 2004, days before the premier of the SpongeBob SquarePants movie in New York. Paramount, another Viacom subsidiary, launched a brand new SpongeBob SquarePants amusement park theme ride to coincide with the movie launch. Additionally, Burger King (also owned by Viacom), released a SpongeBob SquarePants value meal that comes with SpongeBob SquarePants plastic figurines from the movie – ‘collect all 42.’ Nickelodeon, the Viacom subsidiary that operates SpongeBob must not be ignored. Nickelodeon aired a 24-hour SpongeBob SquarePants Marathon that hyped up kids for the movie and forced unsuspecting parents to shell out $12 a ticket. Furthermore, during the Marathon’s commercial breaks, SpongeBob advised the viewers to eat SpongeBob value meals, collect all 67 figurines, and go to Paramount Theme Parks to try his new ride.
At the same time, they are the least able to cope with hazardous situations that arise unexpectedly" (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 2014). Again, it is apparent the blatant disregard of traffic laws directly correlates to teen deaths in vehicle crashes. Teens underestimate how speeding actually impedes their reaction time when placed in precarious driving situations. Contributing factors such as wet roads or uneven pavement necessitates that drivers slow down. Unfortunately, speeding causes them to overcompensate resulting in many one-vehicle accidents resulting in death. Learning to understand the reasons why one should obey traffic laws begins at home through observation of adults. However, academic settings such as driver's education classes are the optimum place for these lessons because their structure provides in-depth training.
As a kid being able to drive is a point in our life that we can 't wait to reach. It feel like it’s a new chapter of freedom especially as teenager ranging from 16-18 years old. With the technology astronomically growing day by day our cell phones are becoming a huge distraction when driving. Drivers are putting themselves in hazardous danger, and not just them, but others surrounding them. Being able to drive could go from having a great time to a nightmare within a split of a second by looking down to a “What are you doing?”.
You could, where possible, offer a compromise and suggest that the child may wish to add some floor cushions to the mats for him to fall onto. You could also maybe suggest that the child waits until the younger children are not playing on the climbing frame so that they don’t copy his actions and hurt themselves.
I read “Driver’s ED” today, and Remy crashed her driver’s ed car into the sidewalk. Remy was not paying attention to the road and drove up onto the sidewalk and kept driving while everyone in the car ordered Remy to stop. Remy did not stop the car even though her driver instructor, Lark ordered her to stop. The driver instructor had to punish Remy and tell her that someone could have been there. Near the end of my reading today Remy was very embarrassed and did not want anyone to know that she wrecked the car, and I also found out more about
SpongeBob is an uneducated and underpaid fry cook. His best friend is a mentally challenged pink starfish who doesn’t have a job and lives in a rock. His only other friends are a stingy crab (who is also his boss), a whale who is somehow the daughter of a crab, and a violent (and somewhat crazy) squirrel from Texas. Everyone else hates him because he is annoying and has destroyed many places, including the Krusty Krab and even the entire city of Bikini Bottom a few times. In fact, there’s a national No SpongeBob Day, and everyone celebrates it, including his best friend. However, he still stays happy and optimistic (most of the time). And if SpongeBob can do it, everyone else can. No matter what, every scenario has at least one positive part.
Spongebob can be funny but is also very annoying considering his laugh and how every time you see Spongebob he has a problem. Spongebob takes the place of an irresponsible high schooler. Spongebob is very care less he reminds me of some I know in my family. Spongebob
“Are you ready kids? Aye aye Captain!” The famous jingle runs through the head of both adults and children alike. Spongebob's impact can be seen in the everyday culture of the world. From books to balloons, Spongebob and friends can been seen in an everyday environment. This small time show has grown to become the leading kids show of all time. Spongebob Squarepants, the critically acclaimed multibillion dollar Nickelodeon television show, has captivated millions around the world with its creative development, unique animation, and interesting controversies.
Because of the lack of driving experience, most teenage drivers are not equipped to recognize and react to dangerous situations.
An overwhelming majority of Americans do not know how to drive. I admit this is a broad statement, but my personal experience, which has been direct and not anecdotal, bears this out. The first, but not the primary source of information comes from the thousands of people that I, as a docent at the world famous Petersen Automotive Museum take on tours. These tours are very interactive and many of the conversations about cars in traffic, cars at speed, car safety, etc. typically draw a response along the lines of "Really, I didn't know that". Many of the young, (barely) driving age, people on these tours admit to knowing or having participated in street racing. These drivers have virtually no experience, are driving cars that, in many cases, have ever increasing amounts of horsepower, may be turbo charged, and have handling characteristics that change dramatically at speed and are winding up in ever increasing numbers as statistics, By the way, adults are as guilty. Even more so as they have some road experience and should have more sense. This is anecdotal, but it seems that the belief is that if you can afford a fast toy with high performance characteristics (Shelby Mustang, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi, Porsche, BMW, etc.) you should be able to drive it fast. Look at the accident stats. Go to a real "Performance" driving school -
