Chen ZhuStudent Number: 58111139ENGL 112 15MWhat is the Best Solution to Preventing Drunk Driving in BC?It is true that automobiles make it convenient for people to get around.

Driving Me Crazy
There is a very specific feeling I get while driving, freedom. However, it hasn’t always been that way. When learning to drive, there are a few items to consider before sitting in the driver’s seat. Most importantly, am I ready for this? I thought I was. Next item, have I done my research? I was fortunate enough to take an extracurricular driving class in high school. Lastly, who is teaching me? For me, my instructor was my father. I thought this was the best-case scenario for me. My father was a full-time semitruck driver. Who better than him to teach me?

Drinking and driving in Wisconsin
Drinking in Wisconsin is the social norm. It seems wherever you go there is alcohol available. Getting behind the wheel even at a buzz level, is evitable because of the increased availability alcohol has become. Even family atmospheres such as movie theaters, zoo’s and amusement parks; indoor and outdoor now sell alcohol. Perhaps parents use alcohol as a social lubricant in these atmospheres, whether it be from the stress of the children or anxiety about large crowds. Regardless of the reasons, individuals drink it in excess and in my opinion in unnecessary places, due to the establishments that make it so readily available. It’s a money market no doubt

Driving with a manual transmission
When the car was first introduced, there was no option in transmissions, there was only one choice being a manual. Since then, the development of the semi-automatic then the fully automatic transmission came to fruition. From there on and after, there has been a steady decline in the amount of individuals in the United States that know how to or generally drive a car with a manual transmission. The art of driving a car and “being one with the car” has been lost throughout this process. However, driving a manual transmission ultimately leads to driving safer with a decrease in distracted driving, a better understanding of the functions of a car, and the

While summer is the easiest, winter is known to be the hardest season to drive in. It takes a good set of driving skills to drive in those harsh conditions. Winter driving is exceedingly different from driving in the summer, as you don’t have to worry about some stuff, but again you do have stuff to worry about in the summer. In this essay, I am going to compare and contrast driving in winter, and driving in summer.
As you’d have to change your car for summer, you’d have to do the same for winter. You have to plan out your trip, and you have to plan it out very carefully. Just like you have to have different materials for winter, you’ll have to have the materials you need for summer. Both

Hazrds of unsafe drivingThere are many Hazards of unsafe driving such as road rage. What makes this such a hazard is Feeling endangered, such as being cut off, Being detained by other drivers who are going slowly, Watching other people breaking the rules of the road and Feeling the need to retaliate. The first step to conquering road rage begins with acknowledgment of the feelings of impatience, frustration, anger and intolerance that drivers experience. Second, drivers should try self-witnessing behind the wheel. Drivers get to know their driving personality by pretending to give a play-by-play summary of their drive, speaking out loud.

Death from drunk driving affects everyone around such as family and friends. In the long run, drunk driving is a serious problem and needs to be prevented.

Indeed, Macbeth is timeless. His situation is as true today as it was when it was written. His vices and wants do not belong to any one century but to all time. Ambition, murder, revenge, deception, self-doubt, manhood, and the corruption of power are all present today. These universal themes are what make Macbeth ageless. Ambition was the driving force behind all of Macbeth. The ambition of both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth moved the entire plot. The witches planted the seed of discontent

Why Drinking Age Should NOT Be Lowered
Alcohol belongs in the category of psychoactive substances one can legally buy in almost any country, according to a certain criterion. Most often, this criteria is age; in the majority of cases, it is set to 21 years. However, in a number of countries, such as Australia, China, and Russia, it is set to 18. In the United states, calls for lowering the drinking age have sounded for a rather long time; considering that alcohol can lead to unpredictable behavior and other negative social consequences, the drinking age should not be lowered.

Before examining its relevance to an investigation, the term motive must be defined. A motive is essentially the "why" of a criminal act. It is the reason and driving force behind committing a crime. Motive can also be viewed "as the emotional, psychological, and material needs that impel and are satisfied by behavior" (Turvey 2002: 307). Usually, a motive does not exist without a social context. Also, a motive is often difficult to discern, since it can be rather complex in some cases. In general, there are often multiple motives that, when combined, lead individuals to commit a crime (Turvey 2002). Only in a rare case is a motive singular Nonetheless, people concentrate on finding one
