To the common individual, a car is simply a means of transportation. However, from the social stand point, the automobile impacts people’s daily lives in a larger aspect. The modern automobile was inspired by a toy made for a Chinese emperor. The toy was not
For us Americans the car is not just a helpful machine that helps us get around. The “sacred” American car is one of the most important status symbols of The American society. The newer and more expensive somebody car is a, the more well-off it’s driver is presumed, in reality that is not really the case. Many Americans in todays
Americans have always been interested in automobiles. One piece of evidence to prove this would be how children cannot wait to turn 16 and get their driver's license and their first car. This is always an exciting time because most teenagers are in the market to buy a new vehicle. If they aren’t, their parents are in the market to purchase a new or used vehicle for their newly licensed drivers. Teenagers seem competitive in who has the best vehicle in some way; whether is comes to have the best car out of all their friends and others may just want good gas mileage to get to school, home, and work. Whatever the case is, we always think our vehicles are better in some ways than other vehicles on the road. Whether
I often get asked why I don’t drive and my simple response to those who ask is simply that I have no interest, which isn’t necessarily true. The real reason I cower away from what I consider to be a huge responsibility of driving is because I have witnessed firsthand the crippling effects cars can have on the fragile human life. In February of my senior on a day that I had just happened to be home from school I received a text from an unusual number it was my best friend’s brother who had texted me to inform me that his sister, a girl who was at my house five times a week, someone who was attached to my hip had been hit by a car. The text was simple and nonchalant which made me think it couldn’t have been too bad.
Just about since birth, we have been passengers in a car. Then later down the years, we become the drivers. When you think about it, we put ourselves in danger every time we get behind the wheel or just in for the ride. Imagine if you are driving a compact car and crash into a half-ton pickup truck. The passengers in the truck will walk away with little to no injuries, while you will possibly sustain serious injuries and potentially death.
“I realize how easy it is for my life to be over because I wasn’t paying attention.” This quote was taken from a woman named Amanda Clark, who had her own experience in a car accident caused by texting and driving. She often goes around and talks to others about it and gives awareness to the issue that seems to be growing more and more with our increasing technology usage. While there are many articles, statistics, and prevention on texting and driving, Jacob Silverman brings up points in his book, “Terms of Service” on how technology, or better yet, social medias are a huge distraction to many individuals of different ages in this era.
Driving is an important life skill that you should develop as early as possible. You won’t have to go through the trouble of taking the public transport anymore. It is an achievement that you can drive yourself to other places. Knowing how to become a driver takes hard work. If you want to pass your driver’s license exam, you should sign up for classes in your local driving school.
Why drive to the movies when we have the luxuries of Netflix in the comfort of our own home? A recent Ford patent has given us all a new reason to jump in the car for the movies, except you won't actually need to drive there.
“Driving in circles” is often one of the first things that comes to mind when someone hears race-car driver. However, “driving in circles” is nowhere near a complete explanation of what a race-car driver can do. Most people know race-car drivers drive with the purpose of going fast. That their goal when driving a race-car is to get from point A to point B as fast as possible. What they don’t understand is why they drive endless loops of a racing circuit to improve previous lap times by milliseconds. Or how they became the drivers they became, and the difficulty behind becoming a race-car driver. This passion for racing is something that few understand, and race-car drivers have difficulty explaining to others. It’s almost as if they are looking into a different boxcar than most people. Often when people think of a race-car driver, they think, “Can’t anyone drive a car?” or “Oh driving in circles like NASCAR? That must be easy.” These answers couldn’t be farther from the reality, and it’s astonishing how unknown the world of auto racing is to many people. Racing is not just driving per se. Racing is the art of driving fast with a bunch of other like-minded idiots, who all risk their lives for no other reason other than to beat the next guy. Racing is entirely different from driving on the street in a countless number of ways.
Sunday mornings, with the sun shining through your garage window, as sweat drips down your face and gets into your eyes. Grease on your hands, spending time with your’e car and what your making it become. That's what a car enthusiast fenes for. Spending time with your pops, problem solving, working hard together and bonding. Or maybe you're with some of your buddies who are also into cars. Teaming up too break nuts loose, or putting the car back together to witness the end result of what you all accomplished. It's all an art form, and to the average person it just sounds like hard work, and they're right it is. Therefore for us car guys, it's something much more than that.
Vehicles are a part of a person’s everyday life these days. You see them everywhere, no matter if it’s a big city, or a little country town. People use cars to travel to all sorts of places, whether it is a school or work. We push our vehicles to the maximum so they seem to wear out really fast. It seems like every five to six years you have to purchase a new one. People have so many causes to by a new car these days but owning a car also comes with a lot of effects. New cars come with a lot of benefits like reliability and warranties. The biggest downfall with buying that brand-new car is the car payment and that expensive car insurance. A new car might look good, and you might get more attention, but you pay for that attention. You must ask yourself is the cost worth the award?
In our life, what the one thing we will be in more than our beloved home, our vehicles. For most of us, the vehicle is the most important transportation devices within our modern life. Whether you are taking a bus, carpooling, or driving your own car, we can all share this common action that among us. And for this reason, that I decided to do my research paper on the automobiles and law of motion. Most of us that drive or have been in a moving vehicle doesn’t know much of the physic behind it. Like when you press the gas pedal why does the car go forward, or what force is behind it. When you press the brake, does the car just add negative acceleration or the wheel just stop moving. How come you can’t do certain thing in a civilian car, but can do other thing in like a drift car or race car. Knowing the physic behind our second home, can be beneficial if something breaks down. Because knowing the relativity of our machine, can prevent us from being over charged when going to a repair shop. Isaac newton law of motion help explain this modern era important invention that transformed the human races from horseback riding to vehicle driven. The main reason why I picked this topic is because, of how much modern vehicle have been part of our life. The vehicle is no longer just an item, but it is part of our lives, part of our family, if something were happen to it we would feel depressed and sad. If you have ever have been involved in a car accident you know the
Majority of the world’s population can’t even stand a world without cars; I boldly support that t; development of automobiles has really influenced the world positively. Whether some people love or hate vehicles, a fact that we have to admit is that vehicles play a major role in our lives and it has influenced the world positively. However, there are negative effects of motor vehicles that I ca refute, but generally the positive impacts outweigh the negative effects of automobiles in the current world (Erjavec, 2013). Development of vehicles has entirely changed our perception about the world and shaped the manner in which we imagine things, the world is like a global village to all of us and all the credit goes to the early inventors and those who came with the idea of motor vehicle development. Development of vehicles has changed some of the human cultures and behaviors, we even have books, articles and documentaries about the automobile inventions and all these are evidence of on how we cherish vehicles because they have truly helped us and they are still helping us. Songs, poems and several movies have been acted about the development of vehicles, the fast and furious episodes of movies uses cars to race, and if we analyze the movie well we realize they tend to showcase different types of cars, engine capacity and their speed.
