Cyclists prowl the streets of London knowing that they cause problems to other motorists since a cycle is the least protected on the roads. No helmets, no florescent clothing, this is what makes cyclists not welcome in this city. According to the Department of Transport 24 out of 112 road accidents in 2008 were cyclists. This just shows the threat that cyclists can pose to other motorists in central London. The deaths of cyclists increases each year, this shows how vital it is to put all cyclists in Room 101.
Bigger is always better. If I could make a significant change to the structure or appearance to the school I would put a cover over the sidewalk. First, having a covered sidewalk would help protect me and my fellow students, staff, and faculty out of the harsh weather. Second, a covered sidewalk would add on to the school and make it look nicer and put the cover all around the campus sidewalks. Last, I would defiantly change not having covered sidewalks because of safety purposes. As can be seen, if I could make a significant change to the structure or appearance to my school I would put cover covers on the sidewalks.
Trains are everywhere in our society, we have jokes, toys, movies, and children’s television shows, but did you know rail transport started in 6th century Greece? The city of San Antonio, Texas is a fast-growing metropolitan city that has a very tremendous amount of people. It has been estimated that the city will grow by another million people in the next ten to twenty years. San Antonio’s traffic is becoming a huge issue and is quickly approaching to be one of the most congested areas in the states. The public transport in San Antonio consists of a very complex bus system, taxicabs, Trolley’s downtown, and the growing market of ridesharing drivers. San Antonio has had many talks and negotiations throughout the last two decades on getting a Light Rail system constructed to help with public transportation. This proposal is for specific businesses, the city of San Antonio and Bexar County to come to a funding agreement.
Are moral standards in the eye of the beholder? According to one author, “we’ve seriously lost our way”, going on to state, “we are like mean adrift at sea without a compass” (Hulme). In literature as in biology, the mantra of form fits function applies and heightens a reader’s appreciation of a writer’s choice and how they contribute to a work of literature. In Tim O’Brien’s collection of short stories, The Things They Carried, the narrative, the experience of reading and the alternating Vietnam and modern day settings not only shape the author’s world view, but reflect upon his own experiences in the 1960’s and 1970’s war. The short stories within
It all started when my brother was carved. It was so dreadful and he looked so ugly. He said the humans took his insides and threw it out into a sort off round thingy like those things that have an plastic bag into the round thingy. And my brother said it was called an bin. It sounded so weird they should call it the round thingy with the crumbly bag thingy inside it. That is a long name so i thought naming it trwtcbtii it stands for the round thingy with the crumbly bag inside it. And then even his seeds were taken out. And i don’t want to be carved like my brother. So i talked to my brother for my plan and he helped me a bit to change it too more advanced stuff he knew. My plan is that i avoid the
I often get asked by friends why I run cross country. They wonder why I think running is fun and how I can run so far. Although there are days I often ask myself why I run cross country, the answer is simple, it is fun and we are all crazy for joining a sport that is other sports punishments. Cross country is an amazing sport that doesn’t get enough recognition. Even if there are days where I hate practice because of a workout or don’t do well in a race, at the end of the day I still get support from the team no matter what happens.
When there are more bikes around, people drive safe and when there are more bikes around, people drive safer and are aware of them. The more bicyclists we see, the safer the roads are going to be for them. I think Manhattan should be doing everything it can to encourage people to bike safe and make the city a safer place to bike
This article I read in the Science Times is called “Cycling 101 Needn’t Be a Collision Course.” Cycling, believe it or not, can be considered a very dangerous sport. When it comes to bike-related injuries, the United States has the greatest count. Overall, in recent studies, there has been a great percentage increase in the injuries resulting from cycling. The injuries from arms and legs have went down considerably. But, fatalities to the head and torso have increased. The lead author of the study of cycling states how roadways and streets could potentially be safer if there were more cyclists. He says this because he believes injuries will decrease if cyclists travelled in numbers. Other countries, excluding the US, are considerably safer
I highly encourage you to expand the narrow sidewalk running from 3rd Ave. /W. Century Blvd. to 5th Ave./ West Century Blvd. The sidewalk poses a serious threat to walking pedestrians that use the sidewalk to commute everyday to access the shops down at Crenshaw Blvd./ W. Century Blvd. and other little businesses up the street from S. Van Ness Ave./ W. Century
It's a sport as well as a means of transportation. And yet, there is a strong stigma against it. Skateboarding has recently become a serious topic of debate, especially concerning whether or not it safe and beneficial to the community. While some argue skateboarders are dangerous 'punks' who are a danger, others argue that the it is a sport and should not be discriminated against. While there is a stereotype attached to the skaters, I do not believe that it is accurate nor is it valid grounds for banning the sport.
Bike riding is one thing every child looks forward to during the summer as well as riding them to school. When I was, younger and rode my bike, I could ride till it started to get dark out, then I had to go home and put my bike away. I didn’t have to have a helmet on when I rode my bike around, today children must have helmets so they don’t fall and bust their heads open. A bike needs to have the regulation reflectors on the front and back so people can see you if you are riding in the dark. Also, you could ride your bike on the sidewalk to be safe, but now you must ride in the bike zone. “Children fifteen and younger are the ones accounted for nine percent of all the pedal cyclists killed and the twenty percent of all the ones that are injured in traffic crashes in 2012” (U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,
Yes. There are more and more clogging up our roads. Most are cycling for leisure and not transport. Cyclists on busy transport roads are slowing traffic and must be restricted to cycling paths off the main roads. It is dangerous to move around cyclists when double white lines are present and difficult to slow,down in time.
For Example, I just read an article about San Francisco getting its first protected bike lanes and drivers already violating it which proves my point. “DPT crews installed San Francisco's first physically separated bike lane
Why spend money that is really needed for other things? Why live uncomfortably? Why be trapped in this hole called a home that belongs to another person? Why not live free and peacefully? When a person rents he or she usually throws away money that could be used to purchase something that belongs to them. Money is not easy to come by so why pay out hundreds toward something that is not benefit to the person paying it out. There is no good explanation for making a decision like this. The best option in a situation like this is to buy a house. Buying a house is a better option than renting an apartment.
